Valentine’s bouquet for repeat visitors
A couple who celebrated their honeymoon in Bermuda 60 years ago and came back almost every year since have been rewarded for their loyalty to the island.
Helen and Ernie Reigstad, from New Jersey, were presented with six red roses on St Valentine’s Day by Zane DeSilva, the tourism minister — one for every decade of the couple’s marriage.
The presentation was made at the Masterworks Museum of Bermuda Art, one of the couple’s favourite spots.
Mr DeSilva told the couple in a note with the flowers: “On this Valentine’s Day, we salute your 60 years of marriage and celebrate your unending love for Bermuda.”
The Reigstads told the minister about their visits to Bermuda over the years, which started with their honeymoon in 1959.
The couple have extended their stays to six weeks in recent times, travelling in the winter to escape snow and cold weather on the East Coast of America.
