Cayman Islands – Day 7

Today is the day we go to Sting Ray City to swim with the stingrays.  We planned on a late breakfast at the condo and a late lunch in George Town because we do not get off the boat until after 7:00 and then we will all need showers.

The morning was spent swimming and snorkeling at the condo, however the water was very cloudy today probably due to a rain storm moving in to the area, so most of the time was spent swimming and sitting or laying around in the sun/shade.

The girls wanted to go to a thrift shop that was closed yesterday so they headed off at about 11:30 and were to text us when on their way to George Town.

We all met up at Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville Restaurant in GTgrand-cayman-margaritaville and had what else; margaritas and cheese burgers in paradise.  They we did a little shopping and bought T-shirts for the crew working on the house back in New Point.

At 3:15 we drove back to the condos, changed clothes and then walked a couple of properties north to the Marriott Hotel where we were picked up by Red Sail Sport and transported to their base camp on the east side of the island, boarded one the their catamarans, The Poseidon, and then headed out to Sting Ray City.  Sting Ray City is actually a sand bar that has formed just off a reef about a 30-minute motor from Grand Cayman.  The fisherman dump all of their eatable scraps from fishing here and the Sting Rays gather to
