the Kittiwake is down!

As of yesterday the island of Grand Cayman has a new Underwater tenant, our very own new sunken ship soon to be an artificial reef, the former USS Kittiwake was sunk yesterday off the coast of Seven Mile Beach.

I had to work so I wasn't there for the sinking, but my husband was pretty close and get some amazing pictures so if you'll like more info about this wonderful event and more insight about what the Kittiwake was all about, please visit Mark at First Time.

Here are some pics that I got from one of the main newspapers of the island, the Cayman Compass.

bye, bye Kittiwake... hello sunken wreck!
Also, here's a picture of one the plaques that you can read (now underwater) with the sponsors of this great project and it's exciting to know that the Guy Harvey Research Institute was also involve in this, what a great way to help leave a UW legacy for all generations to come and visit!



Have a great day!!!

I have this very strange fear of objects under water that should not be under water...like boats, cars, you know...stuff that is supposed to be above water. It is a strange fear and creeps me out just to write about it.

HOWEVER, what a GREAT thing they are doing with putting a reef down for all the fishies and the coral and all that other great stuff that needs to grow and be to keep the water healthy!! YAY!
