A Better View

 Hello... I am writing this post refreshed and Happy. My very good friend Emily asked me if I wanted to change my couch view from mine to hers. Well....since I knew she was currently in her Cayman Island house...I answered with a resounding YES!!! I have been recovering from ankle surgery for the last 12 weeks...and let me tell ya... it is REALLY starting to get on my nerves!!!!!!! It is hard having to depend on people for everything. (As I am sure its hard on them too)

So, off to the Cayman Islands I went for one week. I was curious as to how well airports treated the handicap...because that was the only way I was getting there. They did awesome. I had a wheelchair waiting for me at every corner :0)
I am still in the NO Walking zone!  :0(
Yep....way better views than my couch...LOL!!!! 

Morning breakfast on the back porch. 
Emily and her daughter took me to Starfish Point. Apparently many of the large starfish come in to sun in the shallows...we only saw 3 at this visit. With my water shoes on and crutches I went right in so I could get close. 
They were so tickley!! LOL!!! Their little suckers were all over my fingers.
A couple days later Emily took me to Rum Point!!! Love this place!! Great food, water to play in,  music, chairs to soak up the sun on, and amazing views. 
We even got our traditional Mudslides!!!  We never go to Rum Point and NOT get one!! Yum!!!
Emily even took me to the Dolphin Cove. No not to swim with the dolphins....(how I wish) But, she had heard that they had amazing birds there to see. Of course when we got there...they were to far away for me to crutch to.  But, the people there were so nice...they said, "We will bring some of them to you."
And I had a lovely visit with bunches of birds and (scary) iguanas. LOL!!! They were huge and crawling all over the place. Slightly freaked me out!!!

I worked on my Cayman Island journal I made for all the trips I have taken here ...and all the ones to come. I will only bring it from now on. Its hard dragging tons of stuff every time. When I came these covers were white. The photos used on the front and back...are photos of the backyard to this AMAZING house!!!
Me...stress free and relaxed :0)

I really DIDN'T want to go home....sigh

But I did. 

Next post I will show you what I've been doing in the journal.

I'm so jealous. Here in the UK it's cold, grey and raining. Oh well, at least I've got log fires, good books, and my crafts to look forward to. (And the odd hot toddy!) Um! Maybe life isn't so bad after all. Glad you're feeling better. Blessings
