The deep blue sea

Cayman Island Adventures Part II

When we weren't dressing up as pirates last weekend we spent our time on the beach and in the water.
The beach at our condo
There was a shipwreck really close to the condo and we snorkeled over there a couple times each day.

We haven't got the film developed yet from the cheap underwater cameras we bought... but we saw some amazing fish: a huge stingray, lobsters, flounders, huge angel fish in neon colors and many others. I was in awe of the beautiful fish!

We spent a lot of time walking on the beach too: exploring the tide pools, walking to a restaurant or just enjoying the sea and the beautiful beaches!


On Sunday we rented a van and drove to the other side of the island to visit an area called Rum Point.

The views and the beach was amazing! Some of the most beautiful scenery I have ever seen in my life!

Those dots are my friends

We had to shuffle when we were walking in the shallow water. We didn't want to step on anything...!

Our last night there we were rewarded with the best sunset of the week.

This was an amazing trip and probably the best vacation I ever had! It was difficult to leave paradise for reality.
