Sitting pretty

I was away off island last week. It was one of those things where we had island fever and arranged a last minute trip, a cruise from Miami down to Key West & Cozumel. This was our first cruise experience and so we didn't really know what to expect. Needless to say we had a fabulous time, everything went smoothly (no delays or lost baggage). I even managed to squeeze in some much needed shopping in Miami, but really when is shopping ever not needed?!

En route to Miami, this time around, I also managed
to capture some awesome shots of parts of Grand Cayman and Cayman Brac. You know I'm going to every time I get on that plane. We often forget how beautiful the island that we're living in can be and aerial shots just about reinforce that. Look at the green and blue hues. Go on, just give in. Resistance is futile.

Here you're looking at part of the airport strip and part of Georgetown, the capital. As you can see FOUR cruise ships have parked themselves by the dock. Funnily, we did actually our very own cruise ship docked here in Grand Cayman last week, mere days before our cruise. How neat would it have been if we could have just boarded that very same ship and hitched a ride back to Miami, but apparently things don't work that way.

Moving on, this one is of the famous and very popular Seven Mile Beach area. You're also looking at the stretch that leads to West Bay, which is posted here on the right.

And finally, I think these shots of the Southern tip of Cuba came out better than I anticipated. I really did want to include all the ones I had, such was the difficulty in narrowing them down as they each looked beautiful to me. So here they are...

I have a little handheld GPS. It works when I hold it up to the window of the plane. I can follow my track right across Cuba and see Vera Dera where we stayed when I was there!
