December 3, 2106
We started our day off with a short walk to the grocery store in town to purchase enough food to cover our meals for the next several days. Afterward, we had a little bit of time to further explore the town or prepare for the rest of the day. In the late morning, professor Brent Fortenberry gave us a lecture on the history of Bermuda, and particularly that of St. George’s.
Following the lecture, we had a break for lunch prior to setting out on a guided tour of the historic center of the town. Brent led us on the tour, covering the historic town center and surrounding areas. We stopped briefly at St. Peter’s Church to explore the church and surrounding yard. Reverend Raths, the pastor of the church, spent some time with us talking about the history of the church before we continued on our tour.
At the end of the tour, we returned to the Block House to make dinner which consisted of chicken, rice and broccoli that we purchased from the store that morning. After dinner, we remained at the house for the remainder of the evening in order to do individual work and rest as we continued to adjust from traveling the day before.
