Cayman Islands, Part 2 (2015)

Aside from sitting on the beach and plowing through books and coconut water, we did some super fun and some super weird activities on Grand Cayman this year. First up, we went to Hell. There's actually a town called Hell, and it's basically just a strange post office that sells hot sauce and this little overlook over volcanic formations. The best part were the iguanas in the trees. Another new find this trip was a truly local restaurant. Situated very pleasantly right on the water, Heritage…

Back to the Cayman Islands

We are back from our second trip to Grand Cayman, and while my eyes reflect the gray of a Brooklyn in seasonal transition here, they are still resonating with the aquamarine of Seven Mile Beach behind that. Most of our time was spent on the beach of the Caribbean Club, where we stayed. The beach is spectacularly clean, the sand doesn't burn your toes, and the water is so magical. My favorite moments of the trip were when Walker lifted me and spun me around in the water, making a round wave…

We've also been to Minnesota, Scotland, and the Jersey shore this month, so photos of those spots will be on their way here soon. For now, back to a summery trip we took when it wasn't quite so summery out. Here's a wrap of some sea adventures we took around Grand Cayman…

Seven Mile Beach, Grand Cayman

I'm so excited finally to show you a little bit of our trip to Grand Cayman from this past March! We're slowly editing the photos, so there will be lots more to come. Before I start, let me just say I promise I wasn't traveling solo--I wish the handsome photographer and his parents were in a few of these, but for some reason most of the photos we have are of me. After a pretty short flight from New York (maybe 3.5 hours), a steel drum band welcomed our plane at the airport and bright-red…

Grand Cayman

The waters of Grand Cayman were magically aqua and clear as glass. We swam with stingrays through purple columns of coral, ate conch fresh out of the water, kayaked through dark water to view it light up with our hands in bioluminescence, and spent hours listening, watching, awing at this beauty. More soon!
