Bermuda 2016: [Day 1] [Day 2] [Day 3] [Day 4] [Day 5] [Day 6] [Day 7] [Day 8]

Thursday, July 28, 2016: The day before, our housekeeper had left a Cup Match guide for us. Cup Match is played over two days during Bermuda's twin public holidays of Emancipation Day and Somer's Day. Most Bermudians take these days off from work, so most services are closed for the day, including restaurants, stores, etc.
This came in handy because our plans for the day were to stay in our room, relax, and watch Cup Match. We found the local station broadcasting the match and settled in to learn about cricket.
We enjoyed the opening ceremonies even though we didn't really know what was going on.
It was a beautiful day and we didn't spend the entire time indoors.
We headed down to the pool for an hour or so.
With almost no other guests in the hotel that we could detect, we had the entire pool area to ourselves.
We amused ourselves by making rafts of noodles in the water, ...
... and playing on our phones out of the water. The housekeeper recognized us and cleaned our room while we were in the pool.
We snacked all day but knew that Four Star was open for dinner, so we headed over shortly after they opened.
This time, Tom tried their Indian food but Debbie had another delicious Philly cheese steak.
Tom had spent a fair amount of time learning about cricket all week, so he was able to explain what was happening on the screen, ...
... and what this confusing scoreboard meant.

At the end of the first day, the match was far from over.
