Return from Paradise

I really, really needed a vacation and so did my husband. It's difficult when you live far away from your family to take enough time each year to visit them and fit vacations in as well; luckily for us we kill two birds with one stone each year by visiting my husband's family in Jamaica!

This year we were lucky enough to stay in Ocho Rios in the condo where my husband used to spend his summers as a kid living with his grandparents. Usually the place is rented but happily it was open this time and we got the whole joint to ourselves! We spent the week eating yummy food, laying out on the beach and sitting on the veranda that has the best view of the harbor! And of course, I had to stop at the touristy craft market and buy a purse and shoes. We had our anniversary dinner at The Almond Tree restaurant, which is right on the water. You know the first part of the Pirates of the Carribean ride at Disneyland? I'm pretty sure someone went to that restaurant and came back and copied it.

Enjoy the photos, I wish you all could have come with me!



  1. It looks beautiful! You're so lucky to have an excuse to visit such an exotic place every year!

  2. Uh. Muh. Gawd. Gorgeous place! Well I'm sad you left paradise but I am glad you and hubby made it back safely.
