After waving down a friend on the road I managed to get in Safe-heaven dock on time . From the heat my hair is sticking to my shoulders and my glasses start to fog up . Hate this so much ..
We arrive at Stingray city . So famous and so crowded sadly . About 150 people in the shallow water trying to take a picture with stingrays. Boats surrounding all of us .Water is clear , but not crystal clear . People are moving so much around it, that its all sandy and little dirty almost . But I know its only sand .After an hour swim im crawling back on the boat. My hear dripping wet ,, sun burn building on my sholders and yesterday passing in my memory.
“ Oh where are you going ?time to go home already “ I lean towards a friend and use my not so strong convincing power .. Oh im having so much fun .. Lights are flashing red and blue and white in the Cayman night club …
“Excuse “ I suddenly hear .. “ Excuse, me ! We have arrived in Rum Point “ I hear voice .Oh I realize I have been dreaming and my trip continues .
Oh Starfish Point . I ask around and turns out its not as near as I thought . Locals say its 30 minutes walk . That’s a bit of distance ,but sure I can make it . I grab my plastic cup and head down the road . After 5 minutes I give up and decide to hitchhike .I raise my hand at car filled with workers , but nothing . After I see someone bringing a speed boat on the back . Well that looks like a fun group to spent afternoon with . I raise my hand … But nothing . Last try . I think to myself . I raise my arm and lady in the dark blue car pulls up :
“Where are you going ?” she asks with warm smile
I smile back “ …to the starfish point .” I replay .
I step in the car and chat for few short minutes . She does not know where is the Starfish Point , so step out at the end of the road . I walk pass big gates of the house that’s actually called star-fish and hope beach is behind it . Turns out its not . But I can see it on the other side of lagoon .
I leave bay and start to make way back to the Rum Point . Grey car seems to move out of parking by Starfish point . Might be my lucky day . I start smiling and wave with my arm as they move closer to me . They pull over ! Its filled with 3 older travelers . They are in their 50 ties , but oh they have spirit for travelling . They lough as I tell them my day and pull over at Rum point . And seems that I have convinced them to stay at Rum Point and relax.
I see Catamaran crew passing by . They wave at me to come back to the boat . I take my shoes in the hand put my damp towel around my neck and walk down slowly . What a day , i think to myself…
