The Cayman Islands bid farewell Saturday to Governor Helen Kilpatrick, who will complete her tenure as governor next month.

In true island style, Cayman’s community paraded its vessels along the shore of Seven Mile Beach, starting at Public Beach and ending in front of the Grand Cayman Marriott Beach Resort. The fleet review was a first for the islands.
