On Friday night we celebrated our new home by going out to meet friends of friends at a ocean-side bar in George Town and then on to dinner by the harbour, it was all very beautiful and for the first time we'd visibly relaxed to appreciate what was around us.
On Saturday we set about opening our first Caymanian bank account, but the branch was closed due the long weekend (it's National Heroes Day on Monday) so that first will have to wait until Tuesday.
I also made my first ever iced lattes, which were surprisingly easy and I also prepared and ate my first ever papaya, which was grown on the island (apparently) and was a delicious hybrid of melon and peach.
This morning we tripped down to the beach front, all of 15 seconds from our door and enjoyed a choppy ocean due to the mild Nor'wester blowing in. The winds have churned up the sea, but it has also brought new sea-life into our new backdrop. Today I spotted my first ever stingray, I was about 20 metres out and it was relatively shallow, say 3m, but oh my goodness Stingrays are enormous, I stayed about 3seconds before heading back to shore. I'm sure they're perfectly tame, but anything the size of a coffee table should be respected, especially as its bobbing towards you.
So there you have it, a weekend of firsts.
