Grand Cayman - Smith's Cove

Smith's Cove is the perfect spot for snorkling. Many, many places in Grand Cayman have thick reeds to wade through, but Smith's Cove had beautiful sand and shallow waters right off the shore. It's a secluded spot, and not easy to find. There are no big signs off the road, which is a good thing in my opinion. Even with that said, while were were there, a tourist van pulled up and about a dozen people jumped off and started taking pictures. There were mostly older white folks. Then, about ten minutes later, a type of ice cream truck, pulled up and every one crowded around the van for thier treats. Since we had just watched Nim's Island the night before, it was funny to see these tourists act just like the one's in the movie.

Steve snorkled a bit more here, but it soon started to rain. We had thought it would be just a light drizzle, so we had a picnic lunch under a tree, but the rain soon grew heavier, so the kids and I went to rest in the car, while Steve snorkled by himself. At least the rain scared off those pesky tourists!
