Somebody (me) informed them that it was a birthday dinner so after we finished our main course the staff came over, sang Happy Birthday and put a plate of Tiramisu with a dollop of fresh whipped cream in front of me. They also gave us complimentary shots of Limoncello as a finishing touch. Very nicely done, we will definitely make a return visit on our next trip.
We arrived in Grand Cayman early Sunday afternoon and it was frigging hot. There had been inclement weather for the previous ten days before we arrived and the humidity was off the charts. It reminded me of some of those horribly humid July days in Montreal this summer. There are only two places to hang out in that kind of heat, either in air-conditioning or submerged in cool water. We've been doing plenty of both. The humidity levels have dropped off now and there's a welcome breeze on the beach.

On Tuesday night we decided to walk over to the Ritz Carlton to have a couple of cocktails and watch the sunset. I had a Cayman Sunset, a rum based concoction that went down smoothly while Mr. M. played it safe with a Mojito. Thankfully we decided not to order another round, when the bill arrived it was $34.00 for two drinks. Highway robbery but at least the Ritz graciously provided the twenty or so mosquito bites I endured free of charge. I never have to fear that Mr. M will run off to the tropics without me, I'm the sacrificial piece of meat that keeps him bug free.
Tonight we are headed over to Rum Point via catamaran for a sunset dinner on the beach. I'm really looking forward to it, we tried to get over there last year but it was canceled at the last minute. The Habs are back on the ice tonight so I will be checking my trusty iPhone for the score. They're out of sight but never out of mind. Go Habs!
