Cayman Time

Cayman Blog from The Reef Resort in Grand Cayman

Inspiration fails me..

I have to admit I am lacking in blog inspiration today… this week has been a busy one, including of course our storm preparations… all for naught, thankfully, but once bitten twice shy, bordering on the totally singularly agorophobic !

Anyway, there was supposed to be the last 800m sea swim of the year this weekend, but that was postponed til next week, so with the resort ticking over nicely and the shelves empty in the stores due to all the Hurricane shopping, we’ll just have quiet weekend at home to recharge the batteries.

Next week I am off to Miami for a quick trip to visit the Expedia call center and tell 300+ agents what a wonderful place Cayman (and The Reef!) is.

On Sunday 17th we are having a happy hour at The Reef at 4pm for Gert Van Dijken, who we are hosting for a free vacation with his family in recognition of the massive assistance he gave Cayman in the immediate aftermath of Ivan by all his (voluntary, I should add) work in running his website, StormCarib .

Any readers of this blog who are on island and want to swing by Castro’s at 4pm Sunday, you’ll catch Gert, myself and his Cayman correspondents…. hopefully not drinking “Cayman Hurricanes” or “Dark ‘n Stormies” !

    Please tell Gert thanks from me, too! His site was how i was able to keep track of all the friends i had just left. In my opinion that man should be made some sort of National Hero!
    Cheers to the Reef for having him over!

    Very nice of you to host Gert – for many it was our only source of information about what was happening in those early hours/days!

    I don’t know how he did it, but his website was the only contact for many of us. It is so nice that you folks would host and celebrate him! Our deepest congratulations to him and you! We wish we could have told “you all” in person.

    The stories you could tell and share. It must have been a great time.

    We hope you’ll be there again…75 years from now!!!!!
