Negril, Jamaica - November 2011
(Nanaimo, BC, Canada)
Contest Entry #020 - Negril, Jamaica - November 2011
It was my first time in Jamaica in Nov. 2011. I had planned the holiday eight months in advance.
Didn't have a clue what to expect. I rented a private condo right at the ocean in Negril
, seven mile beach.
Every morning I would wake up to the wonderful view, the warm breeze going threw the condo. All kinds of boats where always passing by.
The morning I took the picture of the fisherman I went for a walk around the complex. I met a older Jamaican man that was working the grounds, he asked me if wanted a coconut.
Of course I said yes and gave him ten dollars for his kindness.
Went back to the condo, sat on the deck and watched the ocean. I was enjoying my coconut milk and this boat stopped right in front of the condo. What a beautiful sight; got my camera and took two pictures.
Next I noticed no one was in the boat. They were all diving
for the day's catch for themselves or for the market. I don't know but it was interesting to see that's for sure.
Thinking of the picture I made sure we bought fish from local fisherman
I am planning on coming back this year to meet more of the beautiful Jamaican people
. I can't wait!!!!
