Greetings from Little Cayman, BWI

Greetings from Little Cayman.

Little Cayman is one of three islands comprising the Cayman Islands (a British Overseas Territory in the Caribbean). It is located approximately 60 miles northeast of Grand Cayman and five miles west of Cayman Brac. Little Cayman is by far the least populous, with a permanent population of about 170-200 permanent residents. It is about 10 miles long with an average width of 1 mile with most of the island being undeveloped.

Almost the entire island is at sea level. The highest elevation is about 40 feet. Little Cayman is known for its excellent scuba diving and birdwatching, unspoiled wildlife habitat and laid-back atmosphere. We’ve been here for a week of spectacular SCUBA diving.

We’ve seen Hawksbills turtles, a rarely seen Loggerhead turtle, eagle rays, squid and lots of beautiful coral and sponges. It’s been sunny and in the 80s here and I’m not looking forward to returning to the cold and mud in Weathersfield.

I've entered my photo of this loggerhead turtle into a photo contest.

You can VOTE once a day from now until April 30., if you like him.
