I'm super excited! Ok, maybe not super but excited enough....and why? Because it's a long weekend. Woo hoo! Although the weekend is almost over, I'm just really happy that a short work week is ahead.
This Monday, November 12, Rememberance Day, we are remembering those who fought in battle for the freedom of our islands- the Cayman Islands. Not only is it a long weekend but Friday night was the official kick-off to our 35th Pirates' Week Festival which I totally missed. The fireworks are always superb! On Saturday, I also missed the Pirates' landing which is usually a treat for visitors and locals alike, but I surely didn't miss the food ;) as I made sure to check out the local stalls. Other than the fact that it's a great time to see faces that you haven't seen in years (although the island is roughly 24 miles long), the food is ALWAYS a treat.
The weather has been amazing. Island 'winters' are the best ;). I literally popped in to one of the island boutiques I frequent, purchased this dress, ripped off the tag and headed out to catch the remaining festival activities for the evening. I knew that I wanted something free flowing and light and this dress was exactly it.
