Day 4: Georgetown, Grand Cayman
Grand Cayman is world-renowned for its pristine beaches, wildlife, and relaxed atmosphere. Lounge on the award-winning Seven Mile Beach, a paradisiacal stretch of sand on the island’s western coast. Take your family to swim with stingrays, dolphins, and turtles, or snorkel amidst tropical fish. Sample the local rum and take a moment to soak in the stunning Caribbean vistas all around you.
Ugh, 86 degrees and 71% humidity today!
Here's a list of refreshing cocktails you may want to try today: 8 Cocktails You Must Try While Visiting Cayman
Apondia and Andre Cruising Around
Actually, it was a great party last night. I found out Andre Dances. So, we had a great musical evening. Think a 76 year old woman and a chimpanzee cutting up on the dance floor.
Negotiating the port was painful. So many people trying to get in for a visit all at once. I have to say there is a horrendous contrast between the green deciduous forests of Pennsylvania and walking around a heat ravaged tropical island. I like the buildings built with lots of stone and cement floors trying to maintain cool interiors.
Andre played a game of seeing how fast he could climb palm trees and get back down, before I disappeared from view into one or another shops.
Besides shopping I liked the display of caring for wildlife at the Stingray center and turtle center.and more dolphins to see. I always like turtles. I think it's because they live a long time and are very slow to act. Unless they are snapping turtles which are prevalent, where I live., Then, watch out for your hand if you decide to help one across a dirt road.
Because or Andre's natural allegiance to alcoholic beverages we visited The Cayman Islands distillery. A very interesting place to learn how to's with alcoholic drinks. Did you know gin is inexpensive here because of an agreement of a sort with the UK.
We still want to stop at the National museum. So, ta, ta, for now.
