Jamaica Days 3 & 4

Our 3rd day there was really no different than the day before, breakfast at the buffet then back down to the pool!




After another lunch at the buffet, we went back up to the room for a little break from the sun and we looked outside and there was a wedding going on! You can see the bride walking down the aisle in this pic! 


After our short rest in the room we went down to the beach for a little bit. I just wasn't impressed with the beach at our hotel so we were literally there for 30 minutes then left and went back to the pool.



After a little more time at the pool, we went back up to the room, showered and went back to dinner at the buffet. Do you see a trend? ;)

After dinner it was back up to the room for an early bedtime because we were so exhausted from the day in the sun and we had an early day the next day.... 

The 4th day there we went on a tour to Ocho Rios to the Coyoba Gardens, shopping and the famous Dunn's River Falls!

After the gardens the bus took us to a traditional Jamaican "flea-market". John thought Mexico was worse when it came to them hounding you, but I thought these ladies were BAD! They definitely wanted to make a sale! 
These little statues were everywhere... Not sure what the Jamaican's fascination with them is... 



After the flea market, the bus took us to a little area of duty free shops. We stopped in a little cafe and had a red stripe and some traditional Jamaican food and it was THE BEST food we had the whole trip! We also stopped in one of the duty free shops for some Jamaican Appleton Rum and some Carribean Rum Cake!

After the shops, it was finally time for Dunn's River Falls. Seriously this was SO fun. Anyone who goes to Jamaica must do this! Luckily we took a water camera so I got some great shots!



 {the tour guide made John wrap his arms around me and then they pushed us in the water backwards. John is underneath me in this pic!}







We actually made it up with minimal injuries ;) 
John was so worried about me falling down and busting my head open he actually tripped and scraped his wrist! I had a small knot/bruise on my shin from hitting a rock under water. So worth it though! 

After our trip, it was back to the hotel and back down to the pool... I had to use up the rest of my water camera so I have a lot of random pics of us in the pool... 





Then it was time for getting ready again... We went upstairs and watched the sunset from the balcony and got ready for our fancy dinner at the Italian restaurant!







 After dinner we went back to the "Pueblo Prinicpe" for the karaoke night.

And that was the end of Day 4. 

Day 5 & 6 up tomorrow!

Wow, you guys look like you had so much fun on your trip! I’m so jealous of… well everything but most importantly drinking by and in the pool (and laying out by the pool in the sun), and the river slides! That looks like too much fun!

i just got back from vacation and was concerned that too many pictures would be cumbersome and no one would want to look at them... but man they are so pretty!

i loved looking at yours.

you look so tan and i agree a water camera was a must!
