Little Cayman Island, Cayman Islands - 1998


The Cayman Islands were discovered on May 10th, 1503 by Christopher Columbus on his forth and last voyage to the new world. He was actually on his way from Panama to Hispaniola when his ships were steered off course by strong winds, and he sighted Cayman Brac and Little Cayman. The story says that he reported sighting two small islands, so full of tortoises (turtles) that they looked like rocks, and he gave the islands the name Las Tortugas (The Turtles).  (Excerpt from "A Brief History of the Cayman Islands."   Please click on it for more interesting reading.)
