This week-end was very easy going. On Saturday, Julie & her mom just felt like staying home & doing nothing. Guys being guys, my dad in-law & myself wanted to do something. So we went for a drive to Grand Cayman’s eastern district (locally known as “east end”) and even took the dog with us.

Some people have their homes near this shore. A short swim away to a lovely coral reef.

Quite windy today ; lots of waves. very few people in the east end. Lots of peaceful & beautiful places to visit though. Its about a 25 minute drive from where we live to get to the east end and 1h+ (depending if you stop or not) to do the whole eastern loop and drive back home.


On Sunday, we went to the Queen Elizabeth II botanical park. The park is in the “Frank Sound” area and is about a 20 minute drive from where we live. We did not know what to expect but very much enjoyed our visit. In the park there were some poisonous trees/plants. Good thing they were well identified.


A small snake crossed the path right in front of us.


Not sure what this was, but it was sure a huge plant!img_4805.jpg

One of the highlights of the park are the blue iguanas. They are an endangered species; only a few hundred remain. At the park they breed and release them. During our walk, was saw about 5-6 of them. They actually are blue (with shades of dark blue) and are quite large ; like a medium sized cat.


The rest of the park was plants/flowers. A wide variety were present and were very pretty as you can see below. All-in-all, a very nice Sunday afternoon activity.
