Islanders head to beach for Easter weekend

Caymanian families and residents are pitching tents on beaches around Cayman as the annual tradition of camping gets under way. The first tents started appearing last weekend, as islanders prepared to start ‘roughing it’ by spending some long, lazy hours lying under the shade of seagrape trees, fishing, boating and enjoying Easter buns and cheese. For some, it may be hard work, fighting off mosquitoes and getting used to a lack of modern facilities for a few days, but for many families Easter camping is a time of bonding, catching up, meeting friends, surviving off the land, learning to fish and enjoying the outdoors. – Photo: Taneos Ramsay
