Dancing in the street

Yesterday was carnival time here on the island as it was Batabano time. Originally launched in 1983 by the Rotary Club of Grand Cayman and now in its 31st. year, Batabano (bat-a-ban-oo) is held annually during the first week of May. The festival’s name is a salute to Cayman’s turtling heritage - the word "Batabano " refers to the tracks left in the sand by sea turtles as they crawl onto the beach to nest.

As we had to work we got to watch most of it from the shop window and but I was able to  nip outside to do a quick video of the start of the parade (it was all done on the phone so apologies in advance).


We also got a couple of visitors in the shop who had a "wardrobe malfunction"  and were in desperate need of help. They were kind enough to pose for a couple of pictures for me after we got them fixed up. I don't know who was more pleased in the pictures, the girls or Martin!!

Martin desperately tries to keep his hands in plain sight.......

A great time was had by all and here's to many more wardrobe malfunctions next year!!
It's always party time in the shop!
