I know I’ve been gone a while, and I’m sorry. My darling daughter had her 18th birthday on Monday. We held Thanksgiving at the Bungalow four days after we returned from our trip. So it’s been a little crazy. But the Bungalow is as clean as it has ever been (at least in several rooms). I was an Amazon in disposing of a fierce, terrifying mouse, with much assistance from MKL (I have a ridiculous fear of mice, no matter how cute or small). Mr. Man has been super snuggly since I got back. And we missed the -16 weather in Colorado during our days on Little Cayman (and one day on Grand Cayman).

I’m glad we went. We found the people to be the nicest we’ve met in all my trips to the Caribbean – lots of ex-pats and British folk – but neither Grand nor Little Cayman was “our” island. The beaches on Anegada and Great Exuma trump any we saw on either island. If we hadn’t gone, I would have always wondered, and it probably would have been a different experience were we divers, as I hear the diving is amazing. It was still wonderful to have a week to read, relax, pet iguanas, drink rum, and watch sunsets and just be together.
