Grand Old House

Our dinner at the restaurant on Grand Cayman Island was phenomenal!
This is me on the veranda where we dined,
overlooking the Caribbean Sea under the intimate gazebos.
Grand Old House Celebrates its 100th Anniversary
Built in 1908 by the Lambert family from Boston, Massachusetts, Grand Old House was originally called 'Petra' after an old biblical name meaning 'place of refuge'. Later the house became known as 'Petra Plantation' because of the abundance of coconut and banana trees.
Thirty years ago it was converted into a fine dining restaurant.
