After 10 days in Providencia, we decided on a calm weather window for the longest over-night of our trip. A four day and four night sail from Providencia to Caymans. It was only supposed to be three days but we decided to stop at a magnificent reef about 10 miles out to snorkel. We stayed the night there but started out again after only a few hours of sleep, so we counted the 10 miles as part of the trip and added one more day to the three days making it our longest over night we have ever done. The trip was very boring and all we really saw was two dolphins at the end of the trip (not counting the giant flying fish that flew out from under our boat). The waters were very calm and the roughest part was on a shallow bank about half way through the trip (it wasn't actually shallow since it was still 100 ft. deep, but it was the shallowest part of the whole trip and was naturally rougher). We arrived the day before yesterday and moored in George Town. After a night there we moved to a marina on the other side of the island in the sound (a giant bay where it is ether too deep to anchor, you aren’t allowed to anchor, or its too shallow to go out of the channel because there is ether grass beds, sand banks, or coral flats). We will be in the Caymans for a while and my brother Kyle is coming down to visit tomorrow.
