On a day like today but only Saturday and 5 years ago is when I first set foot in the Cayman Islands for the first time, but this was not in Grand Cayman but on the second biggest island of the 3 Caymans, Cayman Brac.

this was the view from my studio apartment window

Cayman Brac is an amazing place, filled with nice people, nature and beauty everywhere (above and below the water). For the year and a half I lived there was a blessing in my life, specially because this is the place where I met the love of my life and husband Mark.

I cannot help but mention in this post how much I love the Brac, how much I miss it, the people, nature and specially the diving that is just superb...

In 2006 I moved to Grand Cayman to be closer to my at the time boyfriend, and even tough I was a though change I do not regret a single moment and how much my life changed.

And talking about life changes, here I am celebrating my fifth year on this lovely islands, but now I'm married to a wonderful man, have a house, two dogs and I job I love and enjoy.

On a little sad note: After I moved to GC I went back to the Brac a few times a year, unfortunately back in Nov. 2008 Hurricane Paloma (a category 5) hit the island and devastaded the place. My dear lovely island was damaged by at least 80% and this horrible event kept me away for a whole year until the island is finally  back on their feet and finally they have rebuilt the hotel I lived and used to work for... this event changed a lot of peoples lives and for us it even changed our plans to get married there.

It's been hard to be away from the Brac for so long and I am already making plans to go back. I wish I could be there to celebrate my first day on this island, but I guess I'm going to have to wait and see.... so for now Happy Anniversary to me!
