Cayman Wildlife (Part 1)

My husband's got some visitors on the island, in fact it's a girl (Carol) that he meet through his blog a few years ago and they developed a friendship just by reading each others blogs and comments.

So this Sunday while he went diving with some friends (I just didn't feel like going with them), I took Carol and her family members that came with her to the Boatswain's Beach a.k.a Cayman's Turtle Farm.




At the park they have Turtles (of course) of all sorts of sizes, from little, medium to huge. They have lots of iguanas walking around, a predator tank with some nurse sharks, reef sharks, bar jacks and barracudas. And they also an aviary with the national bird (the Cayman Parrot) as well as other very cool birds. Here are some of the shots I took that day.

We had a great time and took many pictures so I will post some more tomorrow.

So to all of my blog friends out there, here's a one in a lifetime offer: if you ever come down to visit me, I will make sure to take you to this cool park, whatdaya' think???

Have a great day!!!

Well, looks like we are getting ready to start building a studio apartment at the house, so if you guys want to come by and it's not rented you are so welcome to stay there! Otherwise we always have a pull out couch... So, see you in 2010??? Hope so...
