2009 has already brought many changes around the world. Economic fears strap most to their wallets while environmental fears strap others to trees. So with all the news seemingly depressing I’ve decided to show the real important events happening in Cayman and around The Reef Resort:
On National Heroes Day this monument was dedicated to the women of the Cayman Islands. From petitioning for their right to vote and also being the rock of Caymanian society while most men were out of sea, this statue and acknowledgement has been a long time coming.
The 2009 agriculture show was again a huge success with thousands of people attending. Yours truly, was in traffic for 2 hours to get to the grounds. I live 4 miles down the road! The show featured different plants and animals in competition for top prizes. Also featured was the fantastic local food, plants for sale, local crafts, horseback riding and also Caymanian bands performing traditional music. If there is one event that can sum up Caymanian culture and our people it would be this one.
This years Rundown Theatrical Show is already underway at The Harquail Theatre. Hurry up though as the show ends next week Friday.
The Rusty Pelican (formerly Castro’s Beach Bar) has gone under some minor construction to create an even better experience for its patrons. The bar area has been expanded to allow for more traffic, more chairs and tables have been added to its North End, and a brand new menu has been created to add even more variety to the menu.
