Grand Caymen Island

Out in the seas we always had some amazing cloud formations. Here is one that looked very strange. We went to Grand Caymen Island and got off the ship and did our own thing. We took a $5.00 bus trip to Queen Elizabeth 2 Botanical Gardnes in hopes of seeing the endangered blue iguanas. There are said to be only between 30-40 in the wild. They do breed them here as well although we did not go to that area. We chose to do our own leasurly walk through. It was wonderful. In the parking lor we noticed signs to warn people to check under the car before driving off for the iguanas. The water lillies in the gardens were spectacular and the butterflies were plentiful. Here we had a julia butterfly on a wild poinsetta bush. The color was amazing.
