My wife and I have been visiting Grand Cayman for many years. We remember Captain Morgan’s Restaurant, where you cooked your own steak.
That was a fun place, the supermarket was a small overcrowded store a short distance from the Holiday Inn and so many more little places that gave the island a special charm, and the wonderful Caymanian people were always so nice.
We have great respect for them, especially the folks we came to know.
Our favourite taxi driver was Olny Ebanks.
He was a very kind gentleman and his wife was a lovely lady.
I believe most of the folks know who I am speaking of.
It was the closest to paradise of all the Caribbean Islands for us.
Unfortunately, greed set in big time, the cost of everything has skyrocketed, the numerous cruise ships that come to port have ruined the downtown, tourists throw litter on the streets and the beaches. They don’t care one bit. It’s only another island to shop on. It’s disrespectful of the beautiful island.
The vendors renting chairs, jet skis and whatever are a disgrace. I don’t understand the lack of governmental control of this annoyance.
Ah, the Grand Cayman of old was the best and will never be again.
God bless all the Caymanian people and thank you for all the wonderful memories.
