Governor Anwar Choudhury enjoyed a soaking at the Blow Holes in East End when he visited the district on Friday, April 13.

The governor toured East End with Deputy Governor Franz Manderson and district MLA Arden McLean.

As well as stopping at the Blow Holes, where he met tour guide Alan Ebanks, the party also visited the district’s eldest resident, 102-year-old Stella Welcome at her home, followed by a stroll along Seaview Road with the centenarian.

The governor then stopped at the cabana across from the United Church, where he spoke to residents, including Evelyn McLaughlin. As one of the owners of the Winters Land Cistern, Mr. McLaughlin took the group to see Grand Cayman’s largest fresh water lens.

The governor, Mr. Manderson and Mr. McLean next toured the Wreck of the Ten Sail tourist attraction site, where the MLA recounted the history of the legendary English ship and explained plans for the future development of the land, which includes a visitors’ center and cabanas.

One guest, Carmen Conolly, gave the governor a homemade thatched hat, as well as a thatched bag she made for his wife, Momina Choudhury.
