On the beach at Grand Cayman Island

Chicken on Grand Cayman

 Trees on Grand Cayman

More photos of our cruise.  These are of Grand Cayman Island.  The top one is a small look at the beach though twisted trees, then a photo of one of the chickens.  There are chickens running loose all over the island.  They are wild and very pretty.  There is lots of dense tree growth.  The island is very warm and it rains alot.  Really enjoyed this adventure.

We ended our tour at this local brewery and had samples.  Very tasty dark beer.

This is the oldest house on the island, made with mud and sticks.  Seems the little pigs had the right idea afterall.  This house has withstood many hurricanes that have wiped out more modern houses.

Caribean Cruse

Today is the day for photos from our Caribean cruse.  The weather was warm and the sea was beautiful blues from lightest aquas to navy blue.  We had smooth sailing most of the time on our way to Jamacia, but the sea around Grand Cayman Island was very rough also around Cozemel and on our way back to Galveston. We went on a tour of Grand Cayman and had to take a small boat from our ship to the island because the ship cannot dock on the island.  The sea was very rough and I had a terrible time getting onto the small boat and getting back onto our boat, but I made it and everyone cheered.  On the island we visited a Rum factory, turtle farm and a brewery.  Grand Cayman is a beautiful island with many trees and many beautiful expensive homes.  There are also many resorts and "off shore banks."
