Grand Cayman

I am so lucky that I am able to leave the DC winter weather and take a quick vacation to the tropical Cayman Islands.

I woke up early on President’s Day to catch my flight.

I wore snake skin print pajama pants and brown booties on the plane.

My layover was appropriately in Philadelphia, the birthplace of America. I saw this amazing Lego Liberty Bell in the airport.

I had lunch at Margaritaville. The bar looked like a tiki hut and they had a water slide for their guests!

I rocked white, cat eye sunglasses that whole day.

In the evening, I went on a night submarine ride to view the amazing coral reefs that the Cayman Islands are known for.

We went over 100 feet underwater! The coral was inspiringly pretty and I tried my best to photograph the ‘wildlife’.

At the end of the trip, I received a Dive Certificate and watched the submarine submerg in the water. My final day was spent on the beach.

My friends and I went to my favorite place in Grand Cayman, Calico Jack’s, for lunch. I ordered like a local and got the grouper. Yum! Oh, and a strong pina colada!

Calico Jacks is perfect for sitting back, listening to music and watching the sunset.
