Contest Entry #010 - Jetty Beach in Drapers, Portland

This photo was taken at Jetty Beach in Drapers, Portland. It’s a favorite spot for locals (and myself!) .

At low tide the concrete Jetty is fully exposed and offers a great place to sit out on the water. At high tide it is still walkable out to the end, but be careful as it gets slippery!

This is the perfect place to watch the sunset and my fiancé and I frequently find ourselves here after he finished a game of football with his friends on the grassy area near the beach.

There is also a cold water mineral spring that you can cool off on on the east side of the bay.

Sadly, that large almond tree you can see on the top of the photo is no longer standing since Hurricane sandys powerful winds last October knocked it on its side.

Still a great place to experience Jamaicas natural beauty!
