Cayman Tri-Life: Pirates Week!

It's Pirates Week in the Cayman Islands, and there are a few noted athletic events going on.

I'm not participating in any of the events (Must. Keep. Heartrate. Low.)
but the roster sure is/was fun:
o Mike Lockwood Memorial International Swim Meet (both weekends);
o 5K run on November 10th;
o 5K or 10K (!) sea swim on November 11th;
o 10K run on November 19th - to Hell and back!
As previously noted we had a build-up triathlon on Sunday November 12th (not affiliated with Pirates Week).

For fans of turtles (and really, who isn't a fan?), I'll mention that the annual release of green sea turtles from the Turtle Farm happens today. 20 more yearlings head into the wild - go, yearlings, go!

So, for Pirate Week, are Caymanians required to speak like pirates all week (Ahhrrr!). Do you need an eye patch to participate?

Turtles!!! (I'm so trying not to sing that annoying ad ...)

To Hell and Back -- that's just great. Maybe next year you can give it a go.

Go to Hell, but mind your step.

Wendy: By annoying song, I assume you mean the jingle for chocolate, not the theme song for the heroes in a half shell.

Nigel: costume contests, and a lot of kids dress up, but no strict dress code. Not that an eyepatch would bother me much.

Wendy: of course, now I'm stuck with the chocolate jingle in my head. Nigel's thought of the TMNT theme didn't manage to push it out.

David: yeah, basically it's a bunch of rocks with a post office.

Yup, fellas, it's the annoying Turtles ditty stuck in my brain!

The eyepatch could be a problem if you put it on the wrong eye!
