Christie's Grand Cayman trip report Part 2

Day 2-
We all got up around 9:00 and snorkeled the beach in front of the condo.We saw some Angel fish,Blue Tang,Doctorfish,Small mouth Grunts,Stoplight Parrot fish,Barracuda and 2 squid that were all hanging around some rocks right off shore.

Around 11:00 we headed to RUMPOINT on the North Shore.It is the absolute best place to go if you have small children.The water is knee deep for 100 yards or so and very calm.The beach is also lined with Austrailian Pines for shade.My 3 yr old Ryan had a blast playing in the sand with another boy.My mom sat and relaxed on a chair while the rest of us went out snorkeling.We saw some fish under the pier their.My son Taylor saw Stingrays and Tarpon.

It also has a nice bar on the beach for food and drinks.We took snacks and Red Stripe and no one said anything to us.My husband had a few drinks at the bar.

We left around 4:00 and headed back to take a shower and go out for dinner.

Dinner was at THE WHARF..they are right on the water and have nightly Tarpon feedings.It was very entertaining to the kids who gave most of their food to the Tarpon .

I had Seafood Pasta which was really good with Shrimp,Lobster,Scallops and Calamari mixed in the sauce.Mom had a steak..she said was the best that she ever had.My husband had an upset stomach so he only had a salad.The kids and Tarpon ate Chicken fingers.

We dropped mom and kids off at the room and headed back to Coconut Joe's for a few drinks and hung out with some of the wedding crew again.We called it an early night around 11:00 to get sleep for Stingray City the next day.(so we thought).

When we got back to the condo we went on the beach and met a security guard from Jamaica who was such a nice guy.I went in around 1:00 am to get some sleep.My husband stayed and talked to him for a few more hours.

The good news is that now my husband will go to Jamaica!!Hooray...finally!! He said that the people seem like real people and that he thinks that he would enjoy it.

I will finish more tomorrow about Stingray City!!

I forgot to mention that we went to the Botanic Gardens on the way to Rumpoint.It was beautiful but too hot by the time that we got there so we only stayed for about 45 minutes.

Here is a link to my pictures and I will be adding more as I get them developed.These are just from the digital camera,I also have 3 underwater cameras to develope.
