Here are some pictures taken around the resort.
Hammocks are all over the grounds.
I decided to get in one of those hammocks. I read My Sister's Keeper while I was down there and Jane Austen Ruined My Life. Both were great books.
I had to get out of hammock and go upstairs to read the last chapter of My Sister's Keeper. I didn't want to ball my eyes out in front of everyone out there.
I also played golf twice with Keith, Ann and Scotty.
This is a picture from our room on the 4th floor. The vegetation there is so lush and beautiful.
A view of the oceanside of the building we were in. We stayed on the garden side.
This is the Sandals Resort in Ocho Rios. Keith and I were surrounded by lots of newlyweds. We were feeling quite "seasoned" around all those young couples. It was fun talking to different couples and finding out where they were from.
Keith and I had a great week together. It was so nice to get away and spend time doing a whole lot of nothing. It was a wonderful way to celebrate our 21 years together.
We flew back to Orlando on Sunday and there was a long line at the airport in Montego Bay. Keith and I checked in at the Air Jamaica desk, but when my mother-in-law, her husband and his son and wife (directly behind us) went to check in they were told the flight was full. We've had our tickets since February mind you. Long story short. I flew back to Orlando with Keith. Keith caught his connecting flight to Houston and I had to stay in Orlando until Ann and Scotty flew in the next morning. Air Jamaica put me up in a hotel. When Ann and Scotty finally flew in the next day I drove back to Tampa with them where my girls were staying with my parents.
While I was in Orlando I hung out with some of the locals:
Her make-up looks a little better than mine. It was an early departure that day and a little stressful when the rest of our party was left behind.
They really do say "mon" a lot in Jamaica. They also say m'lady when addressing women. I thought that was sweet.
I'll leave you with a Jamaican sunset. I probably won't ever go back there, but it was a nice place to visit and do some relaxing and hear some really nice people say
"No Problem Mon"
