My Grand Cayman Trip  June 28, Part 1
The Trip to the Grand Cayman 
On Saturday the 28th at 3:00 AM, I awoke and prepared to head to the
airport for my long anticipated trip to Grand Cayman (to meet Murphy.) 
Flight from MIA left for Grand Cayman on time, yet another surprise.  
I arrived at Sunset House at about 12:30PM and proceeded to see if I could
check in.  I had a class booked with Cathy Church at 2:30 and so wanted to
get the room taken care of, check in with Cathy and then go grab some lunch
before the class.  Shortly after I got to the camera shop, a man came in,
seemly rushed and speaking with a decidedly Dutch/German accent.  I met
Cathy, who asked me to change the class to 1:30 to which I agreed, and I
left my camera bag with her.  Immediately afterward, the man turns to me
and says  You are Pat Sinclair!  Of course, I owned up to my name and
then said You must be Michael Maes.  I was to meet and dive both he and
his wife on Tuesday afternoon.  

Ellen Cuylaerts is a wonderful photographer and a kind friend whom I had
met through FaceBook.  I then went outside with Michael and met Ellen for
the first time in person.  What a sweet young lady.  Everything I thought
she would be and more.  Gracious and caring and helpful as well.  Michael
shoots beautiful video and is also a gracious and caring human being.
While we were outside talking and hugging (as Europeans will with the
double cheek-kiss in greeting) Keith Sahm (Manager of Sunset House) came by
with Murphy.  Of course I had to greet Murphy, what a sweet dog and looks
better in person than in pictures, btw.  And it was during this meeting
with Murphy that Keith took the picture of Murphy sitting on my feet and
Ellen talking to him, which he posted on FB.  
Then I ran to the office to see if I could check into the room yet  and I
found that the room was ready and the nice gentleman at the front counter
took my bag to the room for me.  Nice room, second floor, fairly large,
above Keith Sahms room and overlooking My Bar. 
I noted the concrete stairs and the paint on them and told myself to be
careful on these things.
The first class with Cathy Church made my brain mush.  There was so much
information in about 4 hours time!  I learned about F/stops and what they
do.  Shutter speeds, ISO speeds/settings, and what the various lenses for
the camera which I now have are for and how to  ...
