Jamaica, Mon

You are probably groaning..."Oh no. Yet another post about her cruise?" Cheer up, friends. Jamaica was the final port of call before our return to Ft. Lauderdale. Stay with me...my trip down memory lane is almost over.

One week ago Doughboy and I had spent the day exploring Dunns River Falls and rode the ski lift to the top of Mystic Mountain. It was early morning when we arrived at the port of Ocho Rios in picturesque Jamaica. It was a beautiful picture perfect day with temps in the mid 80's - a long way from the 10 degree temps at home.




Since this is the last post about our idyllic Caribbean cruise, I must admit I'm having a difficult time letting go. For the past 9 years, Doughboy and I have seen each other mainly on weekends - that's an average of 8 days each month. His job takes him hundreds of miles away from home. Being on vacation, I saw him every day for a week. It was wonderful. Returning back to reality and the responsibilities of life, I miss him. A lot.

I think you just need to go on more cruises, that's all.

Wouldn't that be ideal?

These are beautiful! I love the water pictures, too.

Love the pictures - the deep blue of the sky - that lovely donkey.
Enjoy your weekends with Doughboy and enjoy your photos of the holiday in the week til he comes back again!

Cruises are a great way to see places you think you want to go to. We have seen so many of the islands via cruising.
I would love, love, love a Mediterrian cruise in my future.
Great photos!!!

Love the water photos at Dunn's River Falls. Great job. You got the shutter speed slow down, DOWN! What was your shutter speed setting. The donkey was adorable!

Judy, I used the S mode (shutter) and slowed it down to 2.5. I had to brace myself against a tree or along a deck rail to keep the photo from blurring.

I love the donkey! Wasn't Dunns River Falls beautiful-when I was there I was one of the crazies (college spring break) that climbed it!

I can't get over the waterfall photos. The way you captured the water looks like a blanket carefully covering the rocks. Really great!

Mon, I wish I could have gone. It is so beautiful. The water almost looks like snow in one photo. Did you get the name of the donkey? Oh yeah. I did go and had a great time. The donkey's name is Fred. Yes, Deb, our Fred. I wish we could have run away forever. I to do not want to let go of that vacation. We had a blast.
