We hope you have a great time in GC. If you take any good shots consider posting them on this site. We’d love to see more shots of GC.
AND HAPPY BIRTHDAY ON MAY 14th!
Guess I will have to have an extra drink when I get there just for you
I will post some of my pic’s when I get home. I love to look at other peoples pictures they post in this forum it almost like being there.
I’ve gone 60 years now without doing a bonehead thing like breaking a bone on my birthday…Just goes to show that anything can happen.
Be careful but have fun too.
Did you post your pictures of your trip? I haven’t been able to find them. I enjoy seeing other people’s trip photos also.
Sorry about the photos disappearing for a short time. They’re back up and available again. :computer2:
President Obama’s Health Care bill is expected to be passed very soon. Unfortunately, I fear that it will curtail many people’s travel plans. The bill is expected to raise taxes considerably and that will cause companies to lay more people off. At the very least it will make folks think longer and harder about travelling abroad.
It is already directly affecting us as my wife fears she will loose her job soon and then we won’t be able to travel. We enjoyed GC so much that we still have hopes to return, we just don’t know when we be able to.
This was not intended to sound political, but rather informative. It will have a definite effect on many people traveling outside the U.S., us included.
I am very pleased that so many people have visited my Trip Report. I make me feel good be able to help others with their plans to Grand Cayman. GC will always be one of our favorite places to go to.
You asked early in the messages about how our vow renewal went. To do what we wanted would require us to rent the boat for a considerable amount of money. We didn’t get that reply for a very long time so we decided to not do the vows on GC this trip. We were about to fly out to GC and didn’t have time to plan sufficiently. :confused:
Our next trip after GC was to Bora Bora, where we discovered a nice chapel on the property where we were staying. At 3:30 am I awoke for some reason and glanced at my wife, who had just then turned toward me. I asked her if she wanted to go up to the chapel right then and do our own ceremony. So we went up the hill and decided the Hilton might want us to pay for using the chapel. So we instead did our own ceremony in a nice covered sitting area nearby and renewed our vows at sunrise.
This year I surprised my wife again on Maui by arranging for the same preacher to do the honors on the same beach where we did our first vows renewal. I added to the surprise by having a blue diamond ring ready for the ceremony. :love:
I believe that life is what you make of it. This year will be our 37 anniversary. (If all the renewals are added up, as well, then we’ll be celebrating our 53rd anniversary. :rofl2: ) Its a shame that we didn’t get to renew on GC. Maybe on our next trip to GC we’ll do it at Sting Ray City.
It was cool reading about your sunrise renewal ceremony on Bora Bora. Sometimes the whole environment of a church setting is nice, but when you get right down to it, going off on your own and doing things like this with just the two of you and God is more meaningful!
Here’s praying that you both have many more happy years!
I tried to keep us out of the photos so others could enjoy the beauty of Grand Cayman. I am very pleased that so many people have visited my contribution to Cayman Activity Guide. I wanted the points I brought up to be useful to possible visitors, to give them a taste of how wonderful GC is. CAG has the best, bar none, website we have ever visited.

I second what he just said!!!!
What a nice trip report! Thank you for the photos.
To all that have enjoyed the photos and report, I thank you for visiting and commenting. I truly enjoyed writing and taking the photos.
Even though I did get a broken toe, it was entirely my fault. I enjoyed taking the photos and writing the Trip Report very much. The CAG site is by far the best website I have come across. Granted, my photos are no longer current, but they are timeless and show the essence of Grand Cayman.
I am very pleased that website visitors have liked my small section. I hope that it has helped others to see pieces of GC and, hopefully encouraged them to visit.
