scenes from jamaica

I'm back! And while I'm happy to be home and reunited with my kitties, I'm sad it's over so soon.

This was our third time to Jamaica, all three times in the Ocho Rios area. I basically just look for the best deal, so all three have been different resorts as well. This time we spent the week at Sandals Grande Ocho Rios.

We met lots of great people to hang out with, drank lots of rum (and brought lots of rum home -- who wants a drink?), and had a lot of fun!

Anyway, I'm combining my Weekly Winners post with my vacation summary. Enjoy!






The Beach
the beach

Our favorite place to relax. Plus, the wheeled chairs went a notch higher than the other chairs, much more comfortable to read that way!

We had great weather the first half of the week, and then three days of on-and-off rain! We sat on the beach anyway -- and tried to get under one of the huts. They didn't have enough; I also spent some time reading under a resort-provided umbrella!

Boating
boats

Unfortunately, we never made it out on any of the boats, or any activity really. By the time we were ready to start doing something other than read/relax, the weather turned on us!

That's because I only brought my point-and-shoot and it doesn't focus as well.
Oh well, I liked it, anyway!

This sign made us laugh
falling fruits

Finally, due to being away, I have no kitty photos like I usually include. However, I do have an "animal series" to finish out my photo-tour!

I pet a kitten anyway

Goats

Well, that's all for now. Back to work tomorrow.

I love, love, love all of them. I can't pick a favorite because it's simply not possible. Unless you fix me something nice with some of that rum. Then maybe I could choose ;) Looks like you had a fabulous time, and I'd have pet a meow, too.

The first shot and the one of "red flower" are my favorite. And the sign about the falling fruit? Good for next week's Photo Hunt. :)
