Emerald Lake and Lodge in Yoho National Park, British Columbia, Canada ? Often misidentified as Emerald Bay, Lake Tahoe
St. George Island, Bermuda.
In 1609, a fleet of nine ships owned by the Virginia Company of London set sail for Jamestown, Virginia. En route, there was a terrible storm and one vessel, the Sea Venture, crashed into one of Bermuda's treacherous reefs. The Virginia Company laid claim to the island, originally calling it New London, the Town of St. George. Bermuda was first settled in 1612 and St. George's was the capital until 1815. The survivors built two new ships, and most continued their voyage to Jamestown.
