Last week we went to The Grand Cayman Islands for a 6 day, 5 night trip.  Oh wait, it became a 5 day, 4 night trip because some of us (excluding myself) had expired passports and we spent a day getting emergency passports.  Anyhoo, here we are.  We stayed at the Coralstone Club which is a condo type rental.

We came to visit our friends who were staying next door at The Ritz.  We hopped off the plane and went straight to the beach.

The next day, we spent more time at the beach and then lunch at Karoo before saying goodbye to the Morris family.   Laura is an honorary member.  P1080285

We rented a car and did some exploring.  P1080299

On Sunday, we drove around the West Bay and went to Dolphin Discovery and I dropped a lot of money to spend 30 minutes with a couple of dolphins.

We drove around some more and went offroad in West Bay and watched some kite surfers.  We had a late lunch at Macabuca Tiki Bar for some yummy conch.

On Monday, we took a trip to Sting Ray City via a 1 hour boat ride (Sun Ray Tours).  IMG_2196

This was really fun but the waves were pretty rough.   555080_563625363690744_126049824_n

Laura was a total chicken and kept screaming but still managed to kiss one of them.

Our last night, we splurged and went out to the Blue Cilantro and had a great dinner.

On our last day, we took a quick trip to The Cayman Turtle Farm.  It was ok.  Nothing too exciting.  P1080355

This is a great shot of Laura just before the turtle bit her hand!
