A Beautiful Day in Grand Cayman
Grand Cayman is the largest island of the three that make up the Cayman Islands. It used to be
a British colony, and it was the most welcoming and enjoyable destination of the cruise.
Again, the day was beautiful. Warm enough to want to play in the sand, but not hot enough
to want air conditioning. Much different from Texas summers!

The cruise ships are so huge that they cannot actually dock in the Grand Cayman port, as the water is not deep enough. Here you see how we had to park a ways out, and then get boated to the island by tender.
Here's a picture of one of the tenders pulling into the dock.
Just a shot of the docks area. It was a pretty crowded place.



 

Yes, this white boy was probably wearing
too few clothes... But as the boat was speeding
toward the sandbar, it was kicking up a lot
of sea spray, and it just felt great getting
splashed. You know, it was Thursday,
5 days into the cruise, and this was
the first time I had gotten near the water!
The main thing to do in Cayman, at least for the cruisers, is Stingray City. It's a large sandbar off the Cayman coast where you can snorkel with stingrays. Here I am hamming it up on the boat ride to the sandbar.



 


This is the sandbar where we parked the boat and jumped overboard into Stingray City.
Sorry, this isn't a terribly great picture. Not sure why it looks all dark to the left.

One last teaser picture to show you Stingray City before the next page!
