More about my header...

Thanks for the nice comments about my blog header! I should give a little more background to my header. This is actually a picture my husband, Jeff, and I took on our honeymoon last year. We went to the Cayman Islands for our honeymoon...a wonderful two weeks there! It is truly a spectacular place. We loved it and can't wait to go back. It is on the pricey side, especially for meals out. But the location, atmosphere, beaches, everything there is great!

This picture was taken on the beach in front of the condo we rented for a week. Talk about beautiful!!! We were on the northend of Seven Mile Beach. This shot shows the beach and downtown area in the distance. Anchored in front of downtown are the cruise ships...usually there were anywhere from 3-5 in port each day. If you notice, there are hardly any people on the beach! The whole time we were there, the beaches looked like this. We were surprised at how few people were actually on the beach. It was never crowded! And the water was to die for!!! It felt just like bath water. Ahh!!! We did a little bit of practice snorkeling in the waters here. It took me a while to get comfortable with the mask and snorkel. Breathing in and out through your mouth is a challenge! During our practice swims, we saw a stingray, halibut (I can never remember if its that or a flounder? Well it was a bottom dwelling, flat fish!) and many other little fish swimming about. It was very cool!!!

I saw all the Jaws movies and I can never imagine going snorkeling now because of the shows. LOL
