Back to Reality

Well, we're back in the good ol US of A and glad to be home. It has been brought to my attention that my previous updates from Jamaica were mostly about food and not so much about the beaches, ocean, etc. This in part due to the fact that we LOVE food and in part due to the fact that most beaches are sand and oceans are water, not too different. The beach was beautiful and I've left some pics of it as well as the beautiful ocean. The water was clear and we had a blast snorkeling and I even found a flounder! The water was very calm, no body-boarding or surfing, but you could lay back on a raft and just float away.

Our rooms were spectacular with great views. Every night we'd walk the pathways that were flanked by lush, tropical vegetation and rarely ran into a single person. One of the signs at the resort read, "Couples Swept Away, somewhere between isolation and vacation." Which is exactly how we felt about our trip.

We got to know several of the staff members and their stories were quite interesting. Their culture is so different than ours. They're all about no worries, no problems and they mean it. It was a great, memorable experience for us to be able to go to Jamaica for our belated honeymoon and get to sit back and relax and not worry about a thing! I have added some pics from the trip to my flickr stream, so check them out, others are below.

  1. Definitely enjoyed your pictures. Saw your links on the Couples message board. We talk about Jamaica every day. Looking forward to returning this December for the 2nd time.

    Nice to meet you!

  2. Thanks! 2nd time to Jamaica, I'm jealous. Enjoy your trip, as I don't think you'll have a problem with that!


I know it can be a little scary but go on, I'd love to hear from you!
