This week finds us at the beach, soaking up the Jamaican sun. About a month ago, my dad called us, and excitedly explained that my younger brother had a week off from school in February, and how would we feel about joining them on a warm weather vacation. Didn’t need to ask twice- that’s for sure!
I have never seen a baby so happy to be on the beach- he runs from the sand, full-tilt into the ocean, until he’s almost over his head, and then turns around and runs back, laughing the entire time. We spend the entire day doing just this- and he hasn’t been this happy since last summer, I swear! After a day in the salt water, you should see his little corkscrew curls…too precious.
The resort where we are staying is gorgeous, with lush gardens, and long beaches. I love wandering around the grounds, camera in hand, capturing images of the Dr. Seuss-like plants, and interesting creatures.
We’ll mainly stay around here, relaxing, and enjoying the beaches, pools and playground. Later in the week, I’ll hook up with a local contact for a foodie tour of the area, including stops at an organic farm, popular fishing spot and local markets. I can’t wait! Until then, back to the beach!
