Contest Entry #035 - The Blue Lagoon

This is one of the many vacations that my sister and I enjoyed in Jamaica.

The time was around the late 1980's. We always stayed at the Holiday Inn in Montego Bay because it was a good point to travel from either east or west and south over the mountains.

This trip we went on a journey to the east. Our destination was going to be around the Port Antonio

area. We went with our two Jamaican friends Ansel and Derrick in Ansel's little Russian car. There was no a/c so it made the trip more interesting.

We made many stops along the way to eat some Jerk Chicken and fresh fruit.

We stopped in Columbus Park, Green Grotto Caves and of course Ocho Rios.

We didn't climb the falls on this journey, however we did do some shopping in town.

We continued on our journey on some pretty rough roads that still were broken up from Hurricane Gilbert.

A long trip to say the least but we loved it. When we got around Port Antonio we went to see where the movie 'COCKTAIL' was filmed - Absolutely beautiful.

We also went to the Blue Lagoon where the movie was filmed.

We really wanted to see this as the water was supposed to be a beautiful blue color.

Well when we got there the lagoon was actually green from the rains the day before. It was however still very beautiful as you can see by the picture I have submitted with my sister at the lagoon - it was definitely worth the trip.
