Today's topic is the Grand Cayman Islands. Our stop was the capital, George Town, and it's a beautiful city, very clean and the bluest waters I've ever seen. We went snorkeling here, saw some beautiful coral reefs and fish as big as my 8 year old son. No kidding!!
Our guide said that the Grand Cayman's once were a haven for pirates. I thought this interesting because to look at the city now, I’d have never thought it once harbored pirates. She also told us that the Caymans were known for three things (the three B's) and I asked you that question last week. So, here are the answers:
1. Banking ~ Some of you got this one. From my understanding, this is a popular banking institution for money laundering.
2. Black Coral ~ I don't remember if anyone mentioned this one or not.
3. Booze ~ I do remember someone mentioning Rum. And the Caymans make some fabulous Rum and a Rum Cake that is to die for!
I hope everyone has a fabulous weekend! Don’t forget to leave me a comment for a chance to win this week’s Caribbean giveaway!
Now, to this week’s winner. I entered everyone’s name into Random.org and allowed it to draw a winner. And the winner is…..AMBER SKYZE!
Amazing Blue waters of Grand Cayman!
