Marti’s Birthday Trip to the Grand Cayman Island – February 2011

Today is the second day of my vacation.  At this time I would like to start my vacation notes.

We left Aptos, CA once Marti arrived home from working Friday.  We headed to Millbrae, CA for our short night stay at the La Quinta Hotel.  We choose this hotel because it had a park, stay, and fly service.  The room was ok but we were hungry so we went looking for someplace to eat dinner.  Lucky for us we saw a cafe that was very packed with people and after driving for more than thirty minutes we were getting hungry so we selected the cafe for dinner.  Walking to the cafe we noticed that it was an Italian cafe.  We felt very lucky.  After being seated, we ordered our dinner and waited for our meals to arrive.  I ordered pasta with vegetables and Marti ordered pasta with chicken.  As always we shared our dinner with each other.  My pasta was a little undercooked but Marti was not.  The meal was just so so but it did not matter we were on our way to the Grand Cayman Island.  We returned to the hotel and were fast asleep.  The alarm went off at 3:00 am and soon we were at SFO heading to our flight to Miami. The flight was ok and soon we were in the Duty Free Shop securing some gifts for Bill and Anne.  We boarded our flight to the Island and away we went.  Soon we were landing on the island and as we were walking to the terminal we saw Anne and Bill waving.  We waved back and proceeded to the customs office.  After paying a little duty we were allowed to enter the Grand Cayman Island. We meet up with Bill and Anne and after our hello’s we headed to the car rental office.  We have a nice four door car to drive around the island.

We left the airport and headed to Bill and Anne’s place.  On our arrival I was so impressed.  Their home is beautiful.  The lot is located directly on the sea-side.  They have a pool that looks like it extends out into the sea.  Anne decorated the inside of the home with items collected by both
Bill and Anne.  Wherever I looked there was beauty and something to tease y mind.  That night we talked and talked until we became tired and all headed to our rooms for the night we just in time to see the beautiful sun rise.  What a way to start my day.  Soon Anne and I were off on our early morning walk.  She showed me around the neighborhood and soon we were back after a short walk of three miles.  I was very tired.  Anne walks very fast and I needed to ask her to walk just a little slower.  So we strolled the last half of mile.  It is warm and humid so back to the shower before we headed out to a super place for brunch.
