Ocho Rios

I just got back from a few fun-filled days in Ocho Rios, Jamaica…and for once it was purely vacay! It was my 3rd visit to Jamaica, first time in Ocho Rios. Ya mon!

My friend Anny managed to escape the cold of DC to come hang with me in paradise and it was very relaxing…

We stayed at the Sandals resort which was great because we were among a handful of “non-couples!” LOL It was nice though, no one was hitting on us or disturbing our peace, other than the staff… And – being an all-inclusive resort, we could eat and drink at will!! So, I spent the majority of my time, sleeping, eating and taking in the sun…

We did venture out…just a little, stopping at a roadside fruit stand to check out the local offerings. Here I am sampling a fresh coconut…

We also went horseback riding (courtesy Hooves) in the ocean which was VERY cool…

The name of my horse was Mr. Meticulous. All the horses they use are former race horses…kinda cool to play “jockey!” ha

One night…I was even put on the spot during the beach party where the “fire-man” picked me out of the crowd to stand in this ring of fire and stare at with his intense facials! lol

It was actually kinda cool to get picked, since I’ve never been chosen at the luau’s in Hawaii – I think I look too much like a local girl! Anyway, he left a bunch of grease or something on my arm after touching me with fire…

So, prefect weather, low humidity and loved the soft-serve ice cream machine… All in all, nice trip with the right amount of R&R!
