Hi Wellesley.

I hope that this year is going good one for you and your family. I didn't get my photos in on time for the last photo contest, but I thought you might like to see the ones that I would have submitted.

On one of my many trips to Jamaica my sister and I and a couple of friends went up into the mountains to see a cave.

Most of our travel was by car and then we had to walk and climb up to the cave. It was a very hot day and I got near the top and was ready to turn back.

My friend told me to keep climbing as the cave was near. So I continued and when I got to the cave it was like someone inside had a big air conditioner on. It was so refreshing.

We ventured into the cave but could not go very far as the floor was very slippery. This was one of my great memories that I still treasure as well as so many others.

As you know I love Jamaica, I would like to make another trip but due to finances and I am not getting any younger, just turned 73 in November.

Maybe some day, but if I should not be able to visit again I still have so many wonderful pictures and memories of my 23 visits to PARADISE!!!!! ONE LOVE MY FRIEND!!!!!

By the way, unfortunately I never marked any dates on my pictures. I can tell you that my sister Edie and my friends Derrick and Ansel were there. That was me at the mouth of the cave and my friend Derrick was the guy who was going into the cave.

I don't remember where the location was as it was many years ago. I could have been 30 years or more ago. Hard to pinpoint the time since I started going to Jamaica in 1973 and 23 visits over a number of years! I was 30 years old on my first visit.

I wish that I could be of more help. I will ask my sister if she might remember anything. If I can jog my memory more I will let you know if I come up with any time frame that it might have been. Funny how vivid some things are in my memory and some not so much :-)

Until the next time Peace and Tranquility to you my brother. God Bless!!!
