Day 4 Part 1 - Grand Cayman

---------------------------------------------------------

After our morning snorkeling, we caught a taxi.  For the second half of our day in Grand Cayman, we went to relax on 7 Mile Beach:


Confession:  It was still very cloudy and overcast.  You can see the cloudy skies in that photo.  It looks better in this photo than it did even in person for us.  Don't get me wrong, it was absolutely gorgeous, just a little less vivid looking because it was so overcast.

That photo was taken from these tables where we sat and had lunch on the beach:



Mostly, we sat on the beach and read and relaxed:



I spent some time watching this tiny crab chase down this tiny fish as the waves kept coming in and out:



Then we headed back to the ship.  It started to rain and the seas were kinda rough, so it was tricky getting off the tender back onto the ship and it took us awhile.  But as it started to get dark it was fun to see the ship all lit up:



When we got back aboard, we discovered that when M went for a quick swim at 7 Mile Beach, he had his wallet still in his pocket and all the cash was soaked:



Now we can say that we laundered some money in the Cayman Islands!  Luckily M carries a stainless steel wallet, so the cash was the only thing that suffered!

And speaking of money, I have to take a moment to talk about the safe in our room:



Just a little safe for your money and valuables.  Hardly big enough for a purse, let a lone a person!?!????


Or maybe they're worried you'll try to store your pet hamster in there?
I'm sure it's just a standard safe label used on bigger safes as well, but the idea of someone suffocating in that tiny safe had us laughing the whole week.

And last but not least, another towel animal from our stateroom attendant:
