Visit to Stingray City, Grand Cayman

OK, so we got up early and headed out on a boat to Stingray City. I didn't (for some reason) expect there to be so many stingrays, and i certainly didn't expect them to be so big.. or aggressive. They push you. It's a little scary! See photo's below, after much encouragement from Gail i finally put some food in my hand to feed them. Not funny was when gail grabbed the squid (food) and rubbed it on my leg/arm. That's when they try to give you a stingray hickey. Lucky i'm small and quick.
Had an excellent time in Grand, it was so nice to eat take away pizza again!! Gail and Ralph are now in Oz, LC certainly isn't the same wihtout them. Every here is back to normal - i've been diving a few times, but not seen anything spectacular, so no photo's - but there will be some soon - hopefully of above land - as soon as i get a photo of us at the bar where i don't look totally wasted i'll post it!
Yesterday (9th) we had our first named tropical storm of the year, only 9 days into hurricane season, with it came lots of rain - so the booby pond had water in it, and things are turning from brown to green - after 8 months of brown, it's a nice change.
