a little r & r

Just what we needed. A little rest and relaxation. Just the 2 of us. Thanks to Nana and Papa, Kass and I were able to get away to see what the Cayman Islands had to offer. Lots, I tell you. We walked along 7 mile beach. Rented a car and drove the whole island in a day. Paying extra attention so we didn't end up driving on the wrong side of the road. Repeating throughout the day "stay on the left and you'll always be right". Many, many thanks to Kass' colleague for that little saved us, especially when entering and exiting parking lots.

We snorkeled A LOT! Swam with sting rays. Kissed a sting ray. Even got a massage from one. Though we don't have pics to prove it because that roll of film from the waterproof camera wasn't any good. I'm still bummed about that. Finally conquered my fear of scuba diving and went. It was awesome! There's a whole other world underwater! We visited the island's botanical gardens. Encountered many lizards and iguanas. Saw the island's blow holes in action.

We lounged at the beach. At the pool. Leisurely reading books. Breathing in the fresh island air. We dined. Just the 2 of us. And we even went to Hell and back. No you didn't read that wrong. There's a Hell, Grand Cayman. Supposedly, it got it's name because people say that's what Hell must look like. A group of short, black, limestone formations in the northwest Grand Cayman town of West Bay. Check it out for yourself in the slide show.

And then we came home to our handsome little guy who was just as happy to see us as we were to see him. And I'm pretty sure he had just as much fun at Nana and Papa's as we had on the island.

We took lots of pics. And since I didn't want to have to pick out my favorites just yet, I put them all in a little slide show. You should be able to click on the slide show and view the pictures a little larger than they are on the blog. Enjoy!
