Little Cayman

This is going to be a short post (with promises of more to come tomorrow... it was a long day at the office) with a quick recap of my weekend getaway to our smallest of sister islands. Remember those old Bugs Bunny cartoon where he's bound for America and sails for months and months (and narrowly misses being turned into roast rabbit) until the crew spots land? Remember what that land looks like? That's exactly what Little Cayman looks like. Size: 1 mile in width by 10 miles in length. Population: 150. This island bring a whole new meaning to the notion of 'getting away from it all'.

After landing at the 'International airport' (which also doubles as the fire station and post office), we were driven the 0.05 seconds to our hotel which turned out to be absolutely stunning (and I learned how to post pics just for this...)

Activities on the agenda? I suppose I could've gone diving but really, why bother with heavy dive equipment, getting up early, doing, you know, exercise, when I could be lying n a hammock and reading my brand new copy of See Jane Write? At least I managed to hop on a kayak and set off for Owen island where the DH and I hung out with a couple of birds.

Amount of writing done on this TV-less (not to menion friends and booze-less) getaway? Zero. Zilch. Bupkiss. Sigh.

But you were on vacation, Nadine! You weren't supposed to be writing :-)

Of course, to many of us, your life in the Caymans looks like one long vacation... But I've been down there... On business... I know people work.

Ha! It's funny Maureen, I think I work lnger hours here in Cayman than I ever did back home! But trust me...every weekend does indeed feel like a Caribbean vacation. The beach never gets old for me.
