My Trip Notes

It was the last leg of my Negril Day trip with Cherri & JahB and our guests, Amber (from DC) and Eduardo (from Brazil).

Now everything needed to be out of the way so we could make it in time for the sunset at Rick's Cafe.

And that was done!

Unfortunately it was an overcast day, almost all day, and so I was concerned, deeply, that we were not going to get some great sunsets.

Well, it seems that the cloudy, overcast conditions had little (if any) to do with the beauty of the sunset. It was awesome!

Of course, even while admiring the sunset, I was captivated by the electrifying energy in the venue; people who were not dancing to the reggae music, were busy greeting, laughing, chatting, taking photos and enjoying their drinks!

And all that was independent of the breath-stopping cliff jumps - amateur and professional, taking place at the same time!


So yes, have the photos! Let's start with pictures of...

The Venue


Next, my favouite...

The Sunset At Ricks Cafe Jamaica

This was magnificent!

You should have been there to hear the applause when the sun apparently kissed the sea (and then) disappeared behind the ocean!

Here are raw pics, unchanged, unadulterated - all taken as it descended (yes, in that order).


Are you noticing that the sun is getting smaller as it descends?

This was also when everyone had their phones and all manner of photo devices out!


At this point, the place went wild with thunderous applause! Click Here to Watch The Video!

Meanwhile.... Pictures From The Cliff Side
