Hello Friends, what a day we had yesterday! While my son & I were window shopping in George Town, Grand Cayman, my son spots this! It is a water spout right off of the harbor. A water spout is similar to a tornado over the ocean and they are usually not this big! It was all over the Cayman
news last night. There were a couple of big storms at sea and the atmosphere was just right for this to happen.
It got bigger, then smaller. It is full of wind also and very dangerous to be near it! The water is coming from the clouds, not the ocean.
Could you imagine if you were that person in the parachute...This was not that far off from land or the parachute person!
Then it ended, just like that...the cruise ship went right by it! YIKES!!!
So back to walking around and we decided to head to the Cayman Island Turtle farm. It was fun and a lot of turtles...
Back at the condo and off the dock, we saw these beautiful sea animals right off the dock! Who needs to go diving when you can see this and take pictures too!
This is a ray.
Starfish. I love these...
Conch shell covered in algae.
Spotted eagle ray....come on, you never see these this close to shore....but we did!
He was swimming up and down on the side of the dock.
Ending this with another starfish!
I made the comment about diving because my son severely traumatized his right ear and traumatized his left ear when diving a few days ago. Both ears were bleeding, *OUCH* and his right ear is really damaged. They went to see the new ship that was dropped on the island, only about 50' deep if that, but the dive master kept going up to 30' down to 50' up to 20' down to 60'...he could not keep his ears pressurized, so when he came up, that's when they didn't clear properly. He was in so much pain, (he looked like he did when he broke his wrist)...I took him to the clinic, (awesome, I do say) and they said that his right ear is very bad and his left ear was bleeding too, but that didn't hurt. He still can't hear well out of his right ear but he will be able to fly home on Sunday. The doctor put him on pain medicine and an anti-inflammatory to calm it down.
I'm sure he will be fine.
Well, have a great day my friends!
