Jamaican Travel Story | Back Numerous Times

by Mike Wells
(London ontario )

I used to live in old Harbour as a boy. My Grandpa was a Anglican minister in old harbour, St. Catherine. I love going back home next month with my wife, and have been back numerous times, have taken my son there also.

One of my favourite stories: We where at swimming with the dolphins, I walked up to wait for the bus, my wife was talking to a gentleman, as I was waiting for the bus the man came up to me put his hand out and said to me 'welcome home son'.

My wife had told him the story that I lived there as a young boy.

Made me feel wow!

** Wellesley's Note **

Hi Mike,

Thanks for your submission my friend! Including that photo! Is it date on it saying December 1958? Wow!

Which one of the kid is you? Can I guess you are short boy at the front, second of my left?


Unfortunately, I am having a little issue following your story though. I wonder if some of typed information got lost in submission; it seems broken.

Either way, thanks for the feedback. I do appreciate your feedback and passion for our beloved country.
