Remember to tell your special ones that you love them today.
Some days are just extra special. Like yesterday.
It has been an emotional few days watching Hurricane Matthew tear it's way through the Caribbean. Many of us well remember the devastation brought about by Hurricane Ivan, and as happy as we are that our island has been spared, our hearts sag with concern for those who were not as lucky. Our prayers and thoughts go to all trying to now recover.
And so, yesterday's tour was doubly appreciated. Mother nature showed off her far more beautiful and benevolent side to us - astounding Caribbean blues, still clear waters and magical sea creatures. Sometimes, words fail us, so let the images do the talking. Enjoy.

Barbara gently nudges one of the snorkellers to say hi
Gorgeous day today! The Caribbean sun which has been MIA for so many days is fighting her way back. Skies are blue and the wind is just cool enough to take the sting out of the sun rays. Brilliant colours all round us with the ocean a sparkling blue. Visibility at the snorkel sight was great and once again Barbara visited us, even giving one of our excursion guests a gentle nudge to say hi!
She has been so social lately, and has played catch and tag and follow my leader with the island visitors - how awesome is she?
We had two pregnant ladies on board and they did so well breathing for two during the snorkel site visit - we are sure they enjoyed a little of the buoyancy of the water to take the weight off the legs! So many fish around - almost as if they had missed visitors for some time.
The tour included a visit to Starfish Point, one of the most beautiful beaches on Grand Cayman - a little piece of Caribbean paradise tucked away. It is almost a pity to let everyone know about this beach, but how can we not share? A vacation to Grand Cayman island should absolutely include this attraction!
Our visit to Stingray City Sandbar - oh what a pleasure! The tropical winds have died down, and the sea was beautifully smooth. We had a great time taking pictures of the guests kissing the stingrays.
All in all, another day in paradise ....... want to come join us?
