After four years of showing Bermuda’s visitors the food, history and even ghosts of St George’s, Kristin White is taking things further afield.

This summer the owner of Long Story Short will be offering Norwegian Cruise Line passengers A Taste of St David’s.

‘I wanted to celebrate the history of St David’s, the culture and also to tell some stories about the food,’ she said. ‘I think St David’s has a really strong sense of food history. There is stuff that is made in St David’s that isn’t made anywhere else across the island.’

Alexandra Battery, Carter House, Clearwater Beach and St David’s Lighthouse will be featured in the three-hour tour, but the highlight promises to be Marta and Hans Olander’s farm on Jacob’s Point Road.

It Was Just a Kayaking Trip. Until It Upended Our Lives.

The whale sighting happened right away, minutes into Day 1. Jon, Dave and I had just been dropped off on a remote Alaskan shoreline, an hour and a half by boat from the closest speck of a town. Jon was working as a sea-kayaking guide that summer in Glacier Bay National Park, and he had invited us up for a seven-day excursion during his week off. As the boat that delivered us vanished, the drone of its engine dampening into a murmur and then finally trailing off, it became unthinkably quiet on the beach, and the largeness and strangeness of our surroundings were suddenly apparent. It was a familiar phenomenon for Jon from the start of all his trips: a moment that people instinctually paused to soak in. To me, it felt like those scenes of astronauts who, having finally rattled free of the earth’s atmosphere, slip into the stillness of space. Except we weren’t in space. We were on earth ‘ finally, really on earth.
