Oh man, the Cayman Islands. This had to be my favorite stop of the entire trip. Way back in 2009 when David and I went on our honeymoon cruise, we went to the Cayman Islands. We booked an excursion to Stingray City but the weather was so bad the excursion got cancelled. Rain was pummeling in sideways and the lightning and thunder was really bad. We ended up walking around in and out of the shops for a short time in the pouring rain before heading back to the ship. It was such a sad port stop last go around.
However this time was a totally different experience. Ahh SO MUCH FUN!
|Ready to head to the islands! What's up with my eyes? I don't know what's happening here. Guess it was too early.|
The weather, as it had been our whole trip thus far was gorgeous again. This time there were several other ships anchored up and it was so cool seeing the fleet of them together on our boat up to the dock.
|Shuttling to the port.|
|She was such a beaut!|
|Lots of ships and a wonky panoramic.|
|Out and about exploring before departure.|
|Hi handsome hubby!|
|Peter and Fred solving the world's problems. I'm photobombing, obviously. So is that dude in the back.|
|They're so cute.|
|My handsome Daddy and a gorgeous backdrop!|
The boat ride out to Stingray City was straight out of the movies. The prettiest blue waters you could ever imagine, a light breeze, with sounds of the Caribbean coming from the boat speakers. Oh my gosh just close your eyes and imagine paradise and that was Grand Cayman!
“Don’t worry, ‘bout a thing…cuz every little thing, is gonna be alright”!
|Maranda, Fred, the Captain and Pops.|
|David, why the pouty face? You're in paradise!|
|This is the life, no?|
|How gorgeous is this sliver of the ocean known as Stingray City?|
When we made it to our destination, I was nervous but really excited! I’d always heard about what a cool experience it was.
|Cole and I feelin' the love!|
After a long fun day we made our way back to the boat where you guessed it, dinner and the casino were on the agenda.
|Curls by my flat iron. WAHHH I MISS MY LONG HAIR!|
|Winner winner chicken dinner!|
|Another handsome fella.|
|I had to spend the twenty bucks on this PRO-fessional one!|
|Everybody was tearin' up the bread. Nom nom nom.|
|Soaking in the view with Pops.|
