I love surprises. (aka Squidward Tentacles is alive and well)

I have been trying to snorkel every day since we've been here at Grand Cayman. Fortunately my fella has a home right on the water, so it's incredibly easy to meet my goal. 

See that view? It's from the front door.

I've been seeing some amazing things every single day.  I snorkel in almost the same area, but am always thrilled when I see something new.  Today is was this fella.

He's a Caribbean Reef Squid, and he changed colors and directions as I chased him around.  At one point he went from swimming forwards to backwards and turned a deep red. You would THINK that I would have figured out that something big was happening.  Then, he squirted a COOL bunch of ink and swam off VERY quickly.  Of course that was the ONE shot I missed.  

Now, I'm hoping to spot Sponge Bob tomorrow.  Wish me luck.

Postcards from the Edge.....of Grand Cayman

Anique is a petite, delightful waitress at one of our favorite restaurants here on Grand Cayman.
I’ve known her for 6 years, but Fred has known her for at least 20. 

She has been on island here for 24 years and has worked all of them at her brother Phillipe's
restaurant.The original The Edge restaurant in Bodden Town was destroyed by Hurricane Ivan in 2004.
He now has Over The Edge, the place he built here near Rum Point after the hurricane. 

“I was born in a little town near Lyon. I am 68 years old you know!” Trust me when I tell you,
she doesn’t look 68.  “I have traveled ze world,” she told me in her beautiful French accent.
“I’ve been to Yugoslav, Belgium, Russia, United States, Ukraine and also Egypt. 

“I MUST tell you about Egypt. I was there with my husband. Did you know I was married for
three years before he died of a massive heart attack? Well, I was.He was 29 years old when he died.
But, once we were in Egypt and I wanted to go to ze pyramids. I have always wanted to see ze pyramids.
So, we went to ze pyramids. And right when we were about to STEP into ze pyramids, I had a horrible
feeling that something terrible happened to me in there! I would not go in!  I said ‘No! Something
terrible happened to me in there’, and so we went to another pyramid.  

“In that one, I did not get ze horrible feeling and we went in. Then, in one place ze light beams
shown down on me, and I heard a voice that was speaking to me. It told me things about my life in
Egypt. I will tell you about it some time when we can go to lunch. 

“I am very mystical that way.”
