Life & Times in Grand Cayman

A look out to cemetery Beach from our complex.

Our friends Charmaine & Dave and Tasha & Brian came down from Canada for a visit in November 2005. We went on a sailboat race...the boys on one boat the girls on another. I would just like to say that the GIRLS WON! Here is a look at the boys boat.

Here are the girls at one of our favourite restaurants...Deckers.

A night out on the town at the Hedge Funds Care dinner...the theme was a splash of red.

Long night...don't even think that Ice is melted yet!

My parents bought us a Murder by candlelight game for Christmas...and here we all are.

So it was farewell to our friends Shari, Eamon, Nicola & Craig who were returning to Dublin & London. On one of the last nights we went for dinner and tested their knowledge about their Canadian friends by playing Canadian trivia. They did pretty good at the last challenge...drawing a Canadian flag...but alas Shari's was the worst and thus she was the loser. Should we ask Canada to adopt any of these new drawings?

Here is Silver Sands from the air. When my parents were down this year we went for a helicopter ride.

Here we are at Stingray City...had the place to ourselves...can you tell? I think the rays are so hungry they just might eat the boys! Willie, Dave & Wade are in the water. We sent them in first ...just in case.

Tanis is in the Christmas spirit!

Long live Avalon No. 3! These are the people we shared a condo with for just under 2 months while we were all homeless after hurricane Ivan.

Another beautiful Cayman sunset.

Wade was a good boy...he got so sit on Santa and Mrs. Claus's lap! Although Mrs. Claus looks a little scary.

This is what Christmas is like in Cayman.

Our friends Jay & Kami came to visit us from Canada with their little boy Jack. Although he is not so little now anymore! Wade and Jack seem to be in deep conversation.

Our friend Mark came down from Canada. Here is Mark and Wade doing cannonballs into the pool. No wonder the pool was empty.

A street party downtown George Town, Grand Cayman during Pirates week.

A stormy day in Cayman outside of Silver Sand. This is what a tropical storm looks like.

Here is a typical night for the boys out on our balcony smoking Cuban cigars. Casey, Wade & Chris.

This is where we lived for 3 out of the 4 years we were in Grand Cayman...Silver Sands. Ahhhh...ain't this the life.

A good beach party always ends in Fives Alive, or as our Canadian friends now fondly refer to is as CI Turbo. Many a night has turned nasty because of this game...thanks to our South African friends who taught it to us. Cheers guys!

And here is Karate Kid! I'm not sure what kind of move this is, but everyone seems enthralled.

Have you been to Hell? Well we have. Here I am with my Mom & Dad on one of their 4 trips to Cayman.

And here we are at the end of our deep sea fishing. There were 12 of us and only a few people did not feel ill by the end. All of those sandwiches were for not boys! At least Audrey caught a fish...our only fish...and wouldn't you know it, it was a barracuda.

Our friend Jamie came for a visit from Canada. Here is Wade and Jamie making sandwiches for our deep sea fishing expedition the next day.
