    It’s time to “Return to Cayman”. Even if you’ve never been there!

    For the 10th anniversary of Eric Douglas’ first novel, Cayman Cowboys, Mike Scott is going to “Return to Cayman” and so can you! The first week of June, (May 30-June 6) Eric is going to Sunset House and going diving. He plans to sign copies of the new book Return to Cayman (due out soon) as well. One hundred percent of the proceeds from the Return to Cayman books signed on the island will be donated to the Cayman Magic Reef Restoration project. A portion of online sales for Return to Cayman sold through the end of July will also be donated to the fund.

    In case you don’t know, on August 27, 2014 the cruise ship Carnival Magic dropped its anchor in a restricted area near Don Foster’s dive shop. The grounding tore up more than 12,000 square feet of coral reef.

    Volunteer divers from dive operations all over the island are coming together to clean up the reef and reattach surviving coral. Divers have worked to clear off the torn up coral, salvaging the still-living pieces and moving them to an underwater nursery to keep it growing until the site can be cleaned and repaired. Once everything is ready, the volunteer divers will reattach the coral to the reef using a specially-developed marine epoxy. In spite of the volunteer labor, the repair bill will likely run into the millions of dollars. They need money for equipment and supplies for the reef restoration.

    If you’re interested in going diving that week, come on down. Contact Sunset House and tell them you are coming down for the “Return to Cayman” release party. The book will be available soon, so stay tuned!
