Couple celebrate landmark visit
A Massachusetts couple’s visit to the island marked a milestone in more ways than one.
Polly and Arthur Logan have now notched up 25 visits since their first trip in the 1970s.
And the pair’s most recent trip was their first for 17 years, and was planned and paid for by their ten children plus grandchildren to mark the couple’s 60th wedding anniversary.
According to Ms Logan, the choice of Bermuda — in the beginning — was about proximity.
Ms Logan explained: “If anything happened to them while I was away, I could get home quickly. It was close.”
The couple live in Longmeadow, about 95 miles from Boston.
On their first trip to the island they stayed at Elbow Beach, touring the island by bus and spending time on the beach.
Ms Logan said she was in “her late 30s” then.
She added the couple had seen a lot of changes over the roughly four decades, but that some things never changed.
Ms Logan said: “The people are still the same. They’ve always been very friendly and kind and warm.
“Bermudians are still wonderful people.”
