Bermuda 2016 Day 3: Royal Naval Dockyard & The Waterlot Inn
Day 3 began with a scavenger hunt across the Royal Naval Dockyard, which was a perfect situation -- all the places pretty much that I'd researched as being "locally Bermuda" -- the Bermuda Rum Cake Company, the Dockyard Glassworks, A.S. Cooper, Dockyard Brewing -- almost everything was represented at the Royal Naval Dockyard, so it was a solid spot to get an idea of lots of Bermudian things all at once. No wonder this is a common stop for huge cruiseliners arriving in Bermuda. We checked out a few of the different spots and it was fun to try the different varieties of Bermuda Rum Cake -- obviously the Rum Swizzle flavour was the best. :)
After some time exploring we headed back to the hotel for a tea in the Gold Lounge (epic!!) and a relax before heading out for dinner.
For dinner we went to the legendary Waterlot Inn, a place that has been in operation since 1684?!?!?!?! Crazy. Their tagline is "Centuries in the Making"! Wow. It was, in fact, very legendary. Check out the pics below.

|Tableside caesar salad! Wow this place is fancy.|
|Excited for this meal!|
|The sun started to set...|
|And we got a magnificent view of the sunset from our table!|
|I got a "Signature Tasting Trio" which was awesome, and was able to try all three of their main steaks -- U.S.D.A. Rib Eye, Wagyu Striploin, and Black Angus Filet Mignon. Mmm!!|
|For dessert, the highly-recommended Sticky Toffee Pudding:|
"a traditional english date pudding topped with homemade vanilla ice cream and drizzled with warm butterscotch sauce"... YUP
