I didn't mean to rub in going somewhere warm:) The Man and I hadn't been on a trip together for nearly 3 years. We had booked this trip to see friends who live on the island, and then the friends picked the weekend we were there to get married. What fun!
Cayman is a very small island (22 miles across). While the weather feels Caribbean (we were blessed with what we thought was warm but the locals thought was cold - it was in the 20s C [80 F] but it was a bit windy), the island itself feels like a North American city then other warm places we have visited.
Most of the time we spent visiting or sitting on the beach. I have taken up snorkelling. Saw some cool fish. That being said, we did do some traveling around the island in our rental car. The Man did an awesome job driving on the left side!
The starfish from yesterday was at Starfish point and we believe it was alive (although I wouldn't know how to tell!)
Here are some pictures from our travels!
|The Facebook flip flop tree - for some reason tourists have made this a thing!|
|A rare blue iguana. They only live on Grand Cayman. This was at the botanical gardens where they have a breed and release program.|
20 some years ago there were only like 30 left and now there are about 800.

Hope everyone is surviving the cold.
