Grand Caymen Island

This is just one of many pictures from our cruise. At the Grand Caymen Islands we went to Sting Ray City I think my face says it all. I was terrified. We road a boat for 30 minutes to a sand bar in the middle of the ocean. The water there is unbelievable, it's perfectly clear and super warm. We put on our snorkeling gear and jumped in the water with dozens and dozens of GIANT sting rays. The one in this picture is a baby compared to the other ones that were there. These sting rays are wild and still have their stingers (Crocodile Dundee died from a sting ray which freaked me out the whole time). We were able to feed the stings rays squid and touch their slippery skin. I had touched sting rays before at sea world, but swimming with them was a different story. I went under the water to take a picture of Scott and a huge sting ray that weighed well over a hundred pounds hit my face and got on my back!! Needless to say it startled me and I almost started to cry while everyone else laughed. It was still so much fun. We found huge conc shells and tropical fish. Grand Caymen was so amazing!!!
