Cayman Islands

Leaving Cayman thumbnail

When my plane takes off Thursday morning I will have spent three months of my life on this island. Three months of working, learning, playing, and loving. I don’t know how long you have to spend in a place to have “lived” there, but I do feel like I’m leaving a life and a home, albeit…

Cayman Tourist: The Queen Elizabeth II Botanical Park thumbnail

The Botanical Park was one of the few things left on my list of “must do’s before departure.” It was Mark’s day off and he and Kirsten and Adrian were very kind to humor me with a visit there en route to our old favorite, Rum Point.  Of course the day we decided to take our…

Cayman Tourist: The Turtle Farm Boatswain’s Beach thumbnail

The Cayman turtle farm, Boatswain’s Beach, is something I’ve been dying to do since I first came to Cayman for spring break.

Cayman Tourist: Vivendi Cabaret thumbnail

Cayman Tourist: Stingray City thumbnail

I’ve been to Stingray City dozens of times now but none of them as a tourist. The company I go out and do video with only goes once a week, on Thursdays, and since my dad arrived on a Thursday we couldn’t make the trip. So instead we went with the overwhelming recommendation for Captain Marvin’s…
