The Sand and Surf

Debra heads south...

A warm Gulf breeze caresses my cheek. I taste the salty spray of the water on my lips. The tropical sun pours down and tans my shoulders. Overhead, a bright blue sky arches overhead. Palm trees sway in the gentle breeze. Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh....

No, I'm not delusional from having survived the worst winter in recent history. I have however, sailed away from it all aboard the fabulous Carnival Liberty and am currently in the Cayman Islands. We've been sailing since Saturday, and alas our trip is almost over. We have this final stop, one day at sea, and then we dock in Miami and head home...and back to the snow I'm sure.

But for now, here on Grand Cayman (if all has gone according to plan), we're taking in the sites. Our itinerary today includes a tour of Georgetown and Pedro St. James Castle, a visit to the town of Hell (I can't wait to send postcards!), and an hour's stop at the world-famous Seven Mile Beach.

We visited Grand Cayman on our honeymoon sixteen years ago, but did a snorkeling excursion back then. In addition to taking in the sights and relaxing on the sand, I plan on snapping more than likely hundreds of pictures. In Wild Wedding Weekend, Abby and Noah spend some time on Seven Mile Beach and in Hell, and I'd love to get some pictures for my web-site.

Until next time,

Happy Reading!



  1. I hope you are having a wonderful trip.
    My husband will never go on a cruise, so I will enjoy your pictures!

  2. So jealous! Hope you're having a wonderful time--you deserve it!
