Jamaica 2016

imageWe all loved Jamaica, the people are happy and have an absolutely great accent. The weather was warm, between 79 and 85 but with breezes. It did tend to rain in the afternoon or night but it didn’t slow us down at all.

The picture is taken from one of the five balconies in our room. I know five? That morning there was two ships in port.

The pen to the right of the ship held dolphins and we could watch people swimming with them. Also hear them talking. I loved the mornings with a cup of coffee, warm breezes blowing over the sunny balcony patio. Especially since we left a very rainy cold Pacific NW.

Traveling the past few years has been laid back with plenty of time to laze around. We of course went in to town for shopping and took a few tours, but we try not to spend much time in vans and buses. We did go up to Bob Marley’s family home. The island people revere his memory.

Our suite wasn’t as luxurious as last years but still imagexnice. Umm maybe we’re getting a little spoiled? Next year we’re going to try to get a three bedroom will know next week as we’re booking next year already. Did I say we LOVE Jamaica?

So home for a month and a half and then off for a road trip. Ahhh retirement. Lovin life.

  1. Yep. Lovin’ life. That’s what retirement is all about, eh? I’m so glad you got to spend this time with your family. It’s funny. Our family heads for snow to get together, yours heads for sunshine. 🙂

  2. Never thought about how we head for different climates. 🙂 For us the only down side is the long flight and we’re getting pretty expert at that. We flew Delta this year and it was like a 190 degree difference from last year. Really good flight.

  3. Sounds as if it was near perfect! Looking forward to you spending time here!!!!

    • It was and your name came up a few times. We all agree we’d love for you to join us some year.
      Linda and I are looking forward to our trip south and into sunshine so make sure you capture some for us. 🙂

  4. very nice!! Glad you had so much fun even with the rain. Welcome home… for a short while. Jillian

    Very nice, Lavada! I’m so glad you’re doing what you want to do. Life is too short not to! The pictures were great, needed more of them! 😛

  6. Oh, your trip sounds amazing! And the view looks fantastic. How great to watch people swimming with dolphins too. It’s lovely that you get to go on these great trips. I second Valerie’s plea for more photos 🙂

    • Umm guess I should probably post some on Facebook. I’ll do better next year as we are planning another trip. To much to see and do especially when we like lazing around too much.

  7. Wonderful. There’s one very jealous bunny over here – me! So totally thrilled you enjoyed it. And yes, more photos PLEASE! 🙂

    • I’ll do better with the pictures next year. We just booked the villa. 3 bedroom connected suites, huge patio with hot tub and then a roof top patio with a lap pool, bar, and plenty of comfortable lounge furniture. It even comes with a private catered dinner. But 😦 have to wait a year.
