Beach Sunset and Barkers

After work last Friday, Brent and I took a quick walk on the beach before meeting Jenn and Nate for dinner at Sunshine Grill. Evenings on Seven Mile Beach are my favorite thing about living in Grand Cayman. I still can't believe how lucky I am to live four minutes from one of the most beautiful beaches in the world.

The dog loves to watch sunsets too. Isn't he cute?

I almost didn't take the next picture. I had put the camera away and Brent and I were walking in front of the Ritz. I couldn't believe how many people had their cameras out! People were taking pictures of the view and of each other in front of the view. There were SLR cameras, point and shoots, ipods, cell phones...everyone clicking away. We were literally swerving around to avoid stepping in people's pictures. Eventually I succumbed to photography peer pressure. The result:

Not too shabby.

On Sunday afternoon we drove to Jenn and Nate's and then walked about a mile and a half to Barkers Beach. The picture below captures my view the entire way up. This is pretty close to perfection (for verification, please see #3 on Brent's List of Ten).

As far as I know, Barkers Beach is known for one thing - kitesurfing. It's at the north point of the island which is a nice windy spot. I'm not going to pretend I know what I'm talking about, but apparently this day was ideal wind for kiting. We couldn't pass up the opportunity to cheer on our buddy Nate!

Walking towards to Barkers - check out all the kites:

Nate started kitesurfing about a month ago and we were very impressed with his skills. He's the one with the blue kite in the picture below.

Brent checking out Nate's gear after he came in. I think he should take up kiting just because he looks so hot holding the board.

Did I mention it was super windy?

Ha - what a trooper!


  1. Katie, what great photos!!! Was the wind lifting Walter's ears? He looks so funny/cute. I bet he is loving life in the Caymans, too! Mom K.
