Since this was the last time to go to the beach for at least 6 months, everyone rose early. We packed and then headed off to the beach. Luke spent most of the time trying to catch small pretty small fish and a few speedy crabs in his bucket with no success.

Walking back, a nice woman came out of her condo to give Luke and Joy a beautiful conch shell as a souvenir. The people in Grand Cayman are very nice!

After a great morning at the beach and we had our last Grand Cayman meal in the place that we had our first, The Wreck Bar. We all piled into the mini-van and Mummy drove to the airport. It was sad to leave Grand Cayman and we hope to return someday soon.

Good bye Grand Cayman!

Well, you guessed it, we had another glorious day at the beach. Luke and Joy started early with a jog on the beach. Daddy spotted several sting rays swimming just a few feet of the beach.

More great beach time and then back for lunch and a nap. In the afternoon Nanna and Buppa drove to 7 Mile Beach; they had a nice time but Luke, Joy, Mummy and Daddy were happy to go to the pool instead. Luke practiced his swimming doing lots of laps and even jumping in a bit. After that we headed back to the beach where Mummy treated everybody to frozen drinks. No worries, Luke and Joy’s were smoothies! 🙂

Luke and Joy played with Benjamin (3 yo from London) and Christopher (about 2 from parts unknown). At one point, it looked like Mummy was running a beach daycare. Everybody had lots of fun, it’s fun to make new friends and play with their toys.

Joy @ the Beach @ Rum Point, Grand Cayman

It was another beautiful sunny day at Rum Point and we headed over to the beach early this morning. We were the first ones there so we got our pick of beach chairs. Joy finally ventured in the water today and when it was time to leave she did not want to go have lunch and her nap. 

Daddy bought Mummy a mask and snorkel and she and Nanna swam (actually walked) out to the end of the pier. They came back pretty fast and a little pale despite all of the sun over the past few days; they happened upon 3′ stingray!

Lesson #1: Start your Grand Cayman day with a good application of sunscreen. Demonstration video:

Another great day in Grand Cayman. Luke and Joy started off the day in the pool by the condo. The water was pretty chilly and just when everyone was getting acclimated the pool man came. So we moved the party to the beach which was pretty empty when we arrived. However, in no time a boat let off a mob of cruise ship passengers but the good news was that it was a Disney Cruise so there were lots of kids around.

We had a great lunch at the condo and then everybody took a nap to gather energy for an afternoon adventure. Mummy, Daddy, Luke and Joy went back to the beach while Nanna and Buppa went off for a bike ride. Mummy and Daddy had an afternoon snack (Cayman Coladas) since the beach is conveniently located to the Wreck Bar.

Another great day in Paradise!

Luke and Joy at Rum Point

After a good nights sleep, everybody rose early to start our Grand Cayman adventure. Buppa and Daddy drove a long way to the supermarket to pick up food for the week. Luke and Joy played in the Lagoon with Nanna and Mummy.

After lunch we all headed out to the beach. It was alot more windy and cloudy than yesterday but that didn’t stop Luke from hitting the surf.

Mummy and Nanna cooked a great dinner and the adults watched Elizabeth on DVD.

Another great day in Paradise!
