First Look at Caribbean Sea

First Look at Caribbean Sea

Contest Entry #037- First Look

Last July, I took my 7 year old daughter and my 6 year old son to Montego Bay, Jamaica. I had been there many times and wanted to share the beauty of Jamaica and its people with my children.

This was their First Look at the beautiful ocean. (Taken from the private island at the Holiday Inn Sunspree, Montego Bay). They couldn't believe how big it was! They were speechless! (Which is hard for them!).

They were just in awe at every new thing they saw while in Jamaica! We climbed Dunns River Falls, swam with the dolphins at Dolphin Cove, went down the slide at Margaritaville ( but they were disappointed when they found out that Jimmy Buffett didn't actually work there!).

We also went zip lining at the White Witch of Rose Hall and then took the Ghost Tour at Rose Hall.

Then, we went to Ricks in Negril and (almost) jumped off the cliffs!

They had the most amazing time with every new thing they did...but the thing I think that will stick with them the most is the friends that they made while in Jamaica.

My son met a little boy from Kingston named Ky-Mani and my daughter met his sister, Lucy! They played together all week in the pool and the ocean!

We still keep in contact with Ky-Mani and Lucy and know that we have made life long friends.

Needless to say, the are begging me to go back! My daughter cried on the flight taking us back home.
