Photo Contest Entry #22 -Dining At Little Ochie Seafood Restaurant
Legend says that once you are in the vicinity of the south coast of Jamaica, you must stop in Alligator Pond to savor the decadent, scrumptious seafood from the seafood specialists at “Little Ochie”.
In October 2016 my friend and I took a ride of Alligator Pond and I finally, after hearing so much bout Little Ochie, experienced it for myself.
Alligator Pond is a small fishing village nestled into the southern coastline between two headlands that look like alligator backs while watching from afar.
We reached just in time for the sunset and the view was breathtaking. I fell in love with the location, nestled right on the beachfront.
As we walked onto the beach, the aroma of well-seasoned steamed fish filled the air and my mouth began salivating with anticipation.
We sat in colorful thatched dining huts, some of which were made from the hulls of fishing boats, which gave an authentically Caribbean intimate experience as the sun disappeared in the horizon.
It is a very romantic location where couples can stroll down the shoreline while awaiting their food.
This location is also perfect for familys looking for fun beach getaway where children and adults alike can frolic in the sand and sea.
This picture was taken by me with a Sony A Series Camera (long exposure *13sec* *f0.0* *ISO 100* right before we left as we stood stomachs stuffed to satisfaction with fish, happiness in our souls as we appreciated the beauty of the moment, the warm glow of the lights, the silhouette of the coconut palms and the incredible orange-red glimmer of the sun setting beyond the calm seas.
