Sea, 700 miles east of North Carolina.  Isolated unto itself, Bermuda is
just under two hours direct flying time from every major  U.S. city on the
East Coast. This tiny island country is lush with subtropical rolling hills,
spectacular flowers, dramatic seaside cliffs, world class golf courses and
famous pink beaches. The climate is mild and very moist.
