We live in a tropical paradise, so it can be a bit of a tough sell to get us to visit another tropical paradise. But if that other tropical paradise has cousins? We can make that work.
My sister and her family moved to the Cayman Islands when we moved to Vietnam many, many moons ago, and we can finally (finally!) say that we've visited them. Wanna see some highlights!?!?!
Most nights were game nights! We enjoyed hearts, spades, Codenames (did you know it's from the Czech republic?), a fun game called Dirty Board for which Uncle Doug's parents created a homemade wooden board, and of course poker.
If you've heard anything about visiting Cayman, you've heard about Stingray City. It's a sand bank in the sound where you hang out with/kiss stingrays. And not dinky ones either.
"Did you see turtles?" Yeah, we saw some turtles.
After our turtle-filled snorkeling trip, we connected with other local fauna - the world-famous Caymanian Thirsty Beach Chickies!
"Did you go on a catamaran to a fancy sunset dinner?" Why yes, yes we did!
"How was the hiking?"
"Did you eat some jerk bbq?" In the Caribbean? How could we not?
"What about other snorkeling. Did you see cool colored coral and did the ship workers catch some conch and clean the shell and give it you?" I feel like you're leading the witness here...
Given that it was Semana Santa, we also decorated and dyed some eggs.
Some more successfully than others...
Thank you so much Murphies! We had a fantabulous time in paradise!
