( sorry ladies, wedding pic temporarily removed in the light of recent threats from stalker)
Hello, I am back after getting married, dealing with the media storm in the aftermath of the Crevice trial, campaigning for an independent inquiry into 7/7 and yes, finally, being on honeymoon.
We went to the Turtle Nest Inn in Grand Cayman, discovered by googling to be ranked in the top 3 hidden gems of the world by two independent traveller websites. It comes massively recommended by me and J ( especially now the US dollar is so cheap!) We had a wonderfully spacious, well-equipped condo on the beach, we snorkled several times a day and saw huge parrot fish, trigger fish, eagle rays, Southern sting rays, wrasse, grouper, lobsters and five feet barracudas and bone fish. We bought ourselves food locally and cooked in the apartment, mostly, read lots of books and got disgustingly brown. The highlight of the holiday was a trip to Stingray city, when you can snorkel with dozens of extremely friendly Southern stingrays, an experience voted the best snorkelling trip in the world - well, it certainly ranked as my best swim ever!
Married life agrees with me and J and I are immensely happy. Thank you so much for all the wonderful cards, presents, emails and texts. I am slowly replying and apologies if you have not heard back from us yet. Now that I am back, I am up to my ears in commitments (and on deadlines galore), but I am going to blog for a bit for the next hour as there's quite a lot going on that I want to write about!...
