Jamaica, Mi Home
(Ft. Lauderdale, Fl)
My first visit to Jamaica from the United States was in 1978 with my sister Bridgette of Hagley Gap, St Thomas.
I have vacation, visited family and attended family reunions (we recently had our 5th Family Reunion at The Decameron Club Caribbean Resort in Runaway Bay and a beautiful restful, relaxing day in St. Thomas at the "hot" mineral springs in Bath. (Big up to Rasta Steve).
Over 35 years of loving and visiting Jamaica, it was not surprising to have also found my soul mate and wonderful man, Carlton of 4 years now.
Equally, it not surprising that I will retire here at the end of this year.
Carlton and I live in the beautiful mountains and community of St. Andrews, north of Kingston and centrally located near Above Rocks, Rock Hall, Red Hills, Constant Springs and Stony Hills.
I am looking forward to my future in Jamaica and becoming a permanent resident of this beautiful country.
Lovely! Just lovely!
Did you say over 35 years, since 1978? That's my lifetime! :-)
But seriously though, that's fabulous. Even if you didn't decide to settle here you would have certainly earned the opportunity to call Jamaica home.
Congrats also on your relationship, I do wish you and yours the very best and please, (if you don't mind) give me a shout when next you come back 'home' or when you settle in permanently; It would be nice to have a meetup.
You just made my day Joyce!
P.S. Love Joyce's story? tell us about your Jamaica experience too; the more, the merrier :-)
