I arrived on Grand Cayman kicking and screaming nine years ago on the Fourth of July. It was hard to leave my home and family in the states but fate had called my husband and myself to this place with a plan in mind. And without a doubt, I shall depart paradise in the same fashion. I’ve come to love not only the peacefulness here, but also the people who are some of the kindest and loving I have ever known. I’ve grown accustomed to the laid back lifestyle here which has given me a great opportunity to learn patience and gain inspiration to begin a writing career.
Yes, nine glorious years will finally come to an end this June. My husband’s work permit will be up and we will be heading back to the states to reside in Florida.
With that said, we have been trying to visit every favorite place of ours on the island before we leave.
We’ve made a lot of memories here and that is what will sustain us for the rest of our lives.
With hubby working all these years, I’ve had the pleasure playing tourist every time family has come to visit. I will be entertaining our last set of company here this week, and will be doing the ‘tour de Cayman’ with them for the last time.
Probably two of my favorite spots are Rum Point and Smith’s Cove. I’ve got plenty of sunset pictures to last a lifetime.
We enjoyed our last Pirate’s Week and Carnival immensely. I had to laugh when we visited Treasure Island and there were statues of pirates in various places around town. I’ve heard they also have a Pirate’s Week. Guess I’ll feel right a home.
We all have lots of last times in our lives: the last kiss, the last summer night, the last dance, last family reunions and countless others. Nothing lasts forever and if we had no last times, then there wouldn’t be a place and time for new beginnings. So, cherish those lasts and leave them as just that. Look forward to new beginnings and new chapters in life.
So this ‘Island Girl’ will leave Grand Cayman and arrive on Treasure Island in Florida. Treasure Island is a small resort city that sits on a barrier island west of St. Petersburg. It’s known for its beaches and boardwalk. I know it won’t be anywhere near the caliber as Cayman but heck—I still get to live on an island, only much smaller.
So, June 28 I’ll be catching the last plane out, sitting at my window seat and watching the lights fade away in the distance from this magical place.
