where in the world is bermuda?

Bermuda is so small an island, that many know not where it lies. Of course, the common misconception is that lies among the Caribbean Islands. Not so! Bermuda is so much more north of that collection of islands. It's the northern most island in the world that can support a tropical coral reef system. All possible because of the Gulf Stream - a current of warm water that flows from the south, that cordons off Bermuda from the US. The Gulf stream does more than support & sustain Bermuda's tropical life. Its existence protects Bermuda from most of the hurricanes that are en route to the US, thereby enabling most hurricanes to bypass this tiny tiny rock. Hurrah for the Gulf Stream!

So, for so many of you who ask me the location of Bermuda, here's your answer.
