Lunch at Casanova's in Grand Caman

Good morning,

Our dear friends Martha and Russell cruised with us for two weeks aboard Freedom of the Seas.  They were so very kind to take us to lunch at Casanova's Restaurant in Grand Cayman once again!
As we pulled away from Freedom aboard the tender boat...
...we could get marvelous images of the ship at anchor.
That pink building is Casanova's.
 We landed at the tender dock where there are many high-end stores as well as souvenir shops and even ladies ready to braid your hair.  We passed on the hair braiding.  ;)
 After just a short walk, we arrived at Casanova's.
 This is a "real!" Italian restaurant.  Above are pictures of the family.
 This is our view of Freedom from our seat on the deck of the restaurant.  Wow!
 The reflection of the ship in the window makes a beautiful picture, too.  Also caught in that image are Martha and Russell sitting across from us at the table.
 Oh, the menu.  Everything is wonderful!
 So, we tried much of it!
 Divers arrived at the dock just beyond the deck where we were dining.
 The pirate tour boat provides quite a contrast with Freedom.  To the right is one of the Freedom's tender boats.
 After lunch when we boarded the tender we could see to the bottom of the very clear sea.  Look carefully to see the little fishies in the sea.  ;)
 We passed very close to that pirate ship...
 as we returned to Freedom...
 ...and another tender boat moved through all the blue to bring another group of guests back to the "mother ship" Freedom of the Seas.

Thank you so very much, Martha and Russell, for a marvelous lunch and, most importantly, for your friendship.

All the best,
Lois

That's a pleasant outing. The food looks wonderful.

I'm not much of a sailor but the your ship is a wonder. Really nice looking at anchor.

I can't even imagine what it takes to keep the ship going and the passengers happy.

Gunn, I would LOVE to take a look at your blog, but can't do so until Sunday when I have an internet connection with enough band width. I am happy to have email while out here, but have to wait for a US port to get enough band width to get into blogs and upload my own pictures. :)

Thanks, everyone, for stopping by!

Best,
Lois
