Staying at the Marriott for a couple of nights and then heading to Plantana for seven nights.
I love this place!
Glad to see you back there and back here on CAG!
I pray you have a great trip. We won’t be to Cayman this year but hopefully next year.
Thanks Sarge! It was beautiful this morning but it’s clouding up a little bit right now. But it sure beats working for 10 days!!
Glad to see you back—boy I would definitely hate missing a year! Have a great trip!
Back to reality today! Sitting at Owen Roberts waiting for our flight. It was a great 10 days and I’ll start posting pictures tomorrow.
Getting ready to pushback at MIA and the climb out…
The Bahama’s and Cuba are down there somewhere
Not looking promising…
Hello Owen Roberts!
The Marriott Beach getting ready for the thunderstorm!
Not much of a first sunset!
Off to Casanova’s to see our favorite entertainer – Mr. Eugenio Leon!
Hmmm, is that Danny Boy I’m hearing?
A great finish to Day 1!
The Marriott turtles…
Not a bad start to the day…
The Royal Palms looking lonely with no boat people in town yet…
These four trees tell the story of Hurricane Ivan…
The Marriott is just too crowded for me but we needed a room until the condo was ready on Friday. You are on top of one another!
Debbie’s cousin Patti and her husband Mike arrived on Thursday and we headed to the Sunshine Grill for dinner!
Ahhhh, Plantana and no crowds! We usually are on the ground floor but the condos were booked this year by an insurance company.
Heading to the beach and hopefully some sun…
Debbie and Patti relaxing in the sea…
Might as well do a beach walk since there is limited sun!
Hello favorite palm tree on the island! We saw this tree grow up since 2005.
And now the biggest shock of the trip!
We have had dinner at The Wharf every year we have been down here – but no more! They have priced themselves off the island! Our tab for the four of us – no bottles of wine – just two drinks each – was $445 US!!! :crying:
The food was outstanding and Eugenio was phenomenal as always but the prices are outrageous!
The smiling faces are before we got the bill!!!
It is appropriate that this little guy greeted our crabby faces in the Plantana parking lot after getting home from the Wharf.
Started out with a nice breakfast in the condo and played around with the single color camera function on the beach.
Caymanian walrus in his natural habitat!
The happy crew!
This was my favorite part of the day! This little guy would venture away from his hole and the minute a wave or walker passed by he would scamper back down inside. I watched this for a half hour. Talk about relaxed!!!
Getting ready for the sunset…
Oh, did I forget to mention that the Cubs were World Series champs
