Grand Cayman and Queen Elizabeth II Botanic Park

I would happily return to Grand Cayman in a heartbeat regardless of what the weather may be like here at home.  I have so many fond memories of our trips there which leads me right into the theme for this week – back to Cayman.  More so back to the Queen Elizabeth II Botanic Park.  If you ever go to Grand Cayman – and I highly recommend it – do visit this beautiful park.  We had to rent a car and drive to get from our condo on Seven Mile Beach to it.  That was an interesting drive what with it being on the opposite side of the road from what I’m used to and watching out for chickens crossing the roads.  DH drove – I was not about to – and as he’s driven in England it was easy for him.  I was calm enough driving on straight roads but oh those rounders and making turns!!!!

This is a banana orchid growing wild in the park; found only in the Cayman islands.   Not sure why it’s called that.

    Beautiful orchid, Teri. Although I’ve driven in a number of foreign countries, i refuse to drive on the wrong side of the road. When will these people get it right!
