...And I Kissed A Stingray ... Grand Cayman Island on 1/3/13. What an awesome excursion.
The water is so blue down there, it is just beautiful. The ship in the picture is the Norwegian Pearl. My cruise ship was the Carnival Magic.
This is the catamaran that took us out to the stingray sandbar for our interaction with the stingrays. On the way back to the harbor they unfurled the sails and we sailed back by wind power.
Here is one stingray that is looking for food or just to be petted or kissed.
Boats deposit people on the sandbar which puts you anywhere from waist deep to neck deep in the water and the stingrays swim up from the ocean depths of about 16,000 ft to come be with humans. They come of their own free will.
I got to hold a stingray and kissed two stingrays. It was supposed to be 7 years good luck if you kissed a stingray -- I think I could use 7 years good luck. The stingrays were elusive, but when the guides held them and fed them they were so docile. I also fed squid to one of the stingrays. I would go again if I had the chance.
Downtown was still decorated for Christmas.
I also had some time to shop in Grand Cayman and happened to see this cool artwork that looked like a stingray, and a turtle one below. The weather was a balmy 80 degrees that day in Grand Cayman. What a lovely memory.
