Is blogging about another blog considered laziness or just praise among peers?

Last week our daily fish feeding attracted alot of guests who were excited to see the Tarpons, chubs, grunts and other fish that come around the dock expecting bread.
The next picture is an image of a Castaway Owner in their local habitat. With new Owners (Iguanas) moving in soon, alternate accommodation will become a necessity
The Department of Tourism's PRIDE training came by the reef for a two day seminar where Jake (Head Concierge) learned to fold napkins among many other things. He's a natural ain't he!

As part of our efforts here at The Reef to apply our resources to helping environmental initiatives, we had our web team redo the Blue Dragon trail pages that seemed to have somehow got lost in the ether a while back.
This should shortly be linked directly from the pages of the Blue Iguana programme, but for now you can find the Blue Dragon Trail pages directly here.
One thing we added was the ability to print a pdf of the map so you can easily get ready to do the self-guided tour yourself once you arrive on island.... a great way to explore it.. get the kids to "capture" all the dragons on their camera !

I'm a proud swim parent and (in my spare time!) am working to turn the Cayman Aquatic Centre (including 50m pool) from dream to reality.
A core part of that dream is to "waterproof" Cayman's kids, and that means ALL of Cayman's kids.
In the Eastern Districts there is (until the new Frank Sound High School is built) nowhere for primary school children to learn to swim.
We've therefore done our part at theReef to help, with North Side primary school being taught in the larger pool at theReef two mornings a week.
This is noted in today's Cayman Compass , including a picture I took last week as I saw the school bus parked by the pool one morning.. boy, those kids were having way too much fun !

Yes, it is evening time here in Scotland where your favorite reef blogger has been stationed over the last few months and i must apologize for the lack of reef news since then. However, there is good news on the horizon as i will be back in Cayman and back at thereef in less then a months time which is very close to Pirates Week. Hint Hint.
Upon my return expect more updates of the latest news at thereef as well as Cayman.

I have taken some photos around the resort this morning to give you all an idea of how we are doing.
Therefore, to set your mind at ease, we are open for business and all should be completely back to normal within a couple of days! We look forward to seeing you soon!!

After i returned my bottles i was offered a free pint of draft Caybrew from the free sample area they have set-up inside. While enjoying my brew i was offered a free tour of both the recycling area and the actual brewery itself. How could i say no!
I walked through the warehouse area where pallets of this delicious beverage were being prepped for delivery to all the local bars.
My next stop was at the recycling part of the factory where i got to see what happens to those little green bottles and how they are cleaned. Kudos to the Caybrew team as that machine is top of the top and assures the quality of the reused bottles.
After my look at the cleaning area i then walked through the brewing area where the barley, malts, and water combine to make the drink. Walking in, one is initially hit by the strong smell of malt and the heat of the room. This is certainly where the magic happens.
After about 5 minutes of learning the step by step process that goes into brewing the beer, i exited the factory and made my way back to the reception area.
My advice is to give Caybrew a try as it is great tasting and very refreshing.
