Scenes from a Jamaican Vacation

Let me just start by saying that our Jamaican vacation was an absolute blast.

We made our reservations less than 2 weeks before we left and I am so happy with how our last minute plans turned out.

We stayed in Negril on the Western end of the beautiful island of Jamaica.

Our resort was located on the picturesque Bloody Bay Beach.

The water was crystal clear, filled with beautiful coral, funny fish and was the perfect temperature to enjoy a dip on a warm, Jamaican afternoon.

Charles and I spent a good amount of our days just floating in the bay.

The water was as warm as bath water, it was simply delightful to go for a dip.

It was also pretty humid this past week, so some days I would just toss my beach chair in the water and call it a day.

Nothing better than sitting in that chair, soaking up the sun.

When not enjoying the water, I was hanging out on my beach chair reading my kindle. It was so nice to catch up on some books I have been wanting to read!

When not lounging on our beach chairs or going for a swim, Charles and I could be found enjoying a walk around the Bay, taking in the sights.

There were a few other hotels on the Bay – it was nice to check out the other digs on the block.

Oh, and when we weren’t hanging at the beach, going for a walk or getting our swim on, Charles and I were enjoying a few cocktails under the sun.

This was my first experience at al All-Inclusive resort and let me tell  you, it was a fabulous one. 

Unlimited cocktails = Life.Is.Good.

When the sun went down and our time at the beach came to an end, we enjoyed the hotels restaurants & bars, checking out a new scene every night.

But always stopping for a photo op along the way.

My cocktail of choice for the trip -

Most definitely a mojito. I couldn’t get enough of that fresh mint – perfect after a long day in the sun!

With cocktails in hand, Charles and I would enjoy the sunset on the beach.

The view from our hotel of the sunset couldn’t be beat.

The sunsets in Jamaica are truly a thing of beauty.

The clouds were out of control.

It was hard to narrow down these sunset pictures for this blog post, I had do many awesome ones.

And that was pretty much how we spent the past 6 days in Jamaica. Easy breezy, enjoying the island and each other.

Pretty nice long weekend away if you ask me.

Oh, and a beautiful sunset calls for a jumping shot or two.

Jamaica2012 116 

Pretty standard if you ask me.

As you can see from our beautiful pictures, we had an incredible time in Negril, Jamaica. I can’t say enough good things about our trip – Charles and I are already looking forward to booking another vacation there again next year!
