The calm before the storm .... Starfish Point in Grand Cayman

It's hard to believe that just a three hours after the above picture was taken, Grand Cayman was experiencing a downpour of note! The morning tour had gone off very well with the sun shining down on our excursion guests, affording us a very comfortable tour and loads of photos opportunities at Stingray City Sandbar and Starfish Point Beach. In the above photo, you can even see Rasta the pelican paddling happily away near to shore. Don't know what happened to his two mates that were with him a few days ago, but hope we see them again.

The afternoon's private tour went ahead as scheduled. This was a bachelorette celebration for a bunch of lasses all the way from New Jersey, and they bravely put their faith into our Captain Mario who was proven correct! The storm hit the island with as much water as it could, but the North Sound was wonderfully rain free and even managed a spot of sunlight here and there. We hope that they enjoyed their celebration with us (no photos published OF COURSE) and wish the bride a very happy wedding in June!
