Day 12 Grand Cayman

Today could not have been any better…..  Apollonia & I got on the first tender ashore to Georgetown, Grand Cayman this morning.  Once ashore we hopped into the first taxi heading to 7 mile beach.  We went to the Royal Palm area and got set up with chairs in the prime location before the thundering herds arrived.  The water was crystal clear, the skies clear and sunny…. just perfection.  After a few hours of swimming and enjoying the sun we headed back to town and ultimately back to the ship.  Once back onboard, I went up on deck and sat out a while and read until departure.  Captain Van Zaane invited me up to the Bridge so I went up there for departure.  As with the rest of the ship the Bridge in quite large and quite nice.  I enjoyed my visit to the Bridge then it was off to the showers to get ready for the cocktail party that I had been invited to by the Captain & Hotel Manager.  Great party followed by a magnificent meal in the Pinnacle Grill for “Le Cirque” night with Marco Van Belleghem and his wife Karen.  It was a fabulous evening capping off a perfect day.  Life is good…..
