One of the best days I had during my trip to the Cayman Islands is the day that I spent on a catamaran, sailing and swimming around Grand Cayman. The warm waters of the Caribbean felt sublime as I dove off the side of the boat, seeking a brief respite from the heat.
We snorkeled over a few reefs and were able to watch many different types of marine life.
We also went to Stingray City, where the captain demonstrated how to properly feed a stingray squid, and reminding us to avoid the barbs right above their tails. I even gave one a kiss since it is supposed to bring good luck! We spent the rest of the afternoon going through mangroves and visiting Rum Point.
I had such a wonderful time, it was a shock when I looked at my watch and realized that we would be heading back to shore soon. As we pulled into the dock, I decided to run to the beach and take a picture of the golden sunset. As I stood on the beach, I noticed another catamaran sailing towards the docks. It was such a picturesque scene, it perfectly summed up how I felt about the afternoon.
