An Irie Week In Jamaica

Sharon Kissing The Dolphin At Dolphin Cove!

What an irie week! It was my 6th visit to this wonderful island and my husband's first visit to the Caribbean. We stayed in Rio Bueno near Runnaway Bay at Braco Village Resort. For me it was a return to my happy place.

I love the people, the music, the food and the ocean. The best of all worlds combined into one magical place!

To be able to share it with the love of my life made it even more special. We renewed our vows in this tropical paradise.

On this trip I climbed the falls at Dunn's River, overcame a fear of fish and swam with the dolphins, and went up to see where Bob was born and is now laid to rest at Nine Miles. (The ride up and back in the 'Bob Jeep' was spectacular. Pretty crazy roads.)

My husband doesn't feel he needs to go anywhere else in the Caribbean now! Just back to Jamaica. He loved it!

The resort was fantastic. The entire staff were amazing and were really there to make sure the guests saw Jamaica and her people at their best.

We also had the good fortune to meet Wellesley, publisher of this website and a motivated family man, dedicated to promoting his country around the world.

(Thank you for the guineps Wellesley!)

Note from Wellesley
Hi Sharon and Greg,

It was my absolute pleasure meeting you my friends! You both are two wonderful people and deserved to have a great time so I'm very glad you did.

Thanks for making it Jamaica. Next time will be grand-er!

Sharon Great Picture
by: Carolyn Barrett

That is an awesome picture of you and your dolphin (you still haven't overcome your fear of fish, he was a mammal).

Glad to hear that you love Jamaica so much! You should come see some off the beaten path sort of things with us.

We will show you things that no one else even knows about.

Sharon, I have to give you five stars because you chose my neighbourhood, the Runaway Bay area and Saint Anne to write about. My love affair with Jamaica began over 60 years ago and I keep coming back so often that I call it home when people ask where I am from.
