50 years ago: High praise for an excellent day

North Side

In the Jan. 26, 1966 edition of the Caymanian Weekly, a precursor of the Cayman Compass, North Side correspondent Nettie McCoy wrote:

“Here is a recommendation from one of our tourist friends: ‘Cayman’s most enjoyable day – a highlight of any vacation the world over.

“Weston and Jerry aboard the R.G. Fisher provide the best in fishing by rod and reel and superb skin-diving over the reefs.

“Fish, lobster and conch direct from the sea and prepared on the beach over an open fire provide a true gourmet’s delight. Drinks and hospitality at the Rum Point Club with Peter as your host add a delightful touch.

“An outstanding experience – an absolute ‘must’ during your stay in Cayman. Una bella experienza.’”
