Jamaica50 Entry #26 -Jamaica Life
I remember the lazy days of summer in Lambs River, watching sunset at Ricks Cafe, Negril, climbing the slippery rocks at Dunn's River, eating hot jerk pork and rafting the Rio Grande in Portland, walking miles to school barefoot, vague memories of independence and a cup celebrating from the principal when I was 5.
My favorite guava and sweetie tree, swimming & shrimping in Lambs River going to movie at Shands Theater Mobay, the day some got killed from a little rain at the stadium during a festival celebration, the costumes, and who could forget - the hallabaloo after "O Cherry O Baby" won, Miss Lou and Mass Ran at Ward Theatre; couldnt understand why they were running from a lil rain but most of all, I wouldnt give up my memories for nothing in the world.
Jamaica, so near and dear in my heartand I wish you 50 more years my precious Jamaica.
