21/365 Grateful - Kiss a Stingray - 7 Years Good Luck

In Grand Cayman they say that if you kiss a stingray you will have 7 years of good luck.  I'm not really that gullible but what the heck if there is any chance that it is true i'm in.  

I chose not to bring my camera with me as I wasn't sure exactly what we were going to be doing and if it would be safe.  Needless to say it would have been fine and I regretted not bringing it the entire time.  Oh well just another excuse to return to 
Grand Cayman.  The highest point on Grand Cayman is their landfill.  I'm so used to our mountainous islands that this struck me as quite strange.

We were told that the larger rays were the females, it was quite strange to have them swimming around us, freaked me out at first.  They feel sort of like mushrooms, slightly spongy.  I wasn't quite brave enough to try to feed them.

20/365 Grateful - Hollywood Beach Locals

How strange it is to look out my window and see snow covered branches. Was it really only a week ago that I was walking along Hollywood Beach, meeting up with the local inhabitants.

19/365 Grateful - Back to Reality.

I arrived home at 1:30 am this morning after two wonderful weeks of being pampered, swimming in warm tropical waters, and exploring new places on a Holland America Eastern & Western Cruise. 

Lovely as it is to get away I could not help but think of  Dorothy in the (Wizard of Oz) saying " There's no place like home."  It feels good to be back home where everything is familiar, although I could get used to having someone cook and clean up after me. 

Now I just sit and wait to hear from the airlines as to when my luggage is going to come home...
