First Stop...Jamaica!!!



We arrived here on Wednesday, May 10th after two full days at sea. Jamaica is a small but beautiful mountainous country filled with Bananas, Mango and some of the most beautiful flowers you will ever see. I have a Bouglavelia plant that I keep in a hanging basket, here the Bouglavelia are not in hanging baskets, they are TREES and they bloom all year 'round. There are also millions of Hibiscus in every color under the sun! When we arived, we boarded a tour bus and headed out for our excursion of fun. It took two hours of riding to get where we were going, but along the way our tour guide pointed out all of the places of interest and we were able to see these plants and flowers in virtually every yard along the way! Fields of Banana trees...what can you do with that many bananas? Everything, they even boil them...no kidding...Kent bought a plate of boiled banana with cabbage and fish at the rest stop along the way. At any rate, the country was gorgeous. Next stop...Dunn's River Falls, Dolphin Cove and the Nature trail!
