Our first port was Grand Cayman. We departed for our excursion via tender and were soon on our tour bus headed for our first stop at a shop that sells rum and rum cakes. I tasted the mango rum and we sampled the chocolate and mango rum cakes.
Carol’s Sunday School Class and our book club ladies will be surprised to learn that Carol went to hell! Our next stop was to view and photograph the interesting rock formations and purchase T-shirts documenting our visit to hell.
The final stop on our excursion was at a Dolphin Center to view a performance by the trained dolphins. Some of our fellow travelers had photos made petting one of the dolphins that was trained to come up onto a deck.
Our tour guide, Sonia, provided interesting commentary and historical info as we drove around the island. We saw Governor Helen Kilpatrick’s motorcade on the way to the Heroes Celebration in the heart of Georgetown. She’s the first woman to be appointed by the British government to this position. Our tour guide explained that the native Caymians were happy to be independent from Jamaica, but they prefer to be under British rule and are proud to be part of the British empire.
