This is the snow we received in December. It was 15 inches with below 0 windchill factor. Didn't go any where for about 3 days. This is the time to be thankful to be retired.

One of the things I like to do when visiting a new place is try different foods. On this plate was callaloo, ackee and salt fish and bean stew. Callaloo (at the 9:00 position) tasted like what we here in the States call collard greens. Ackee and saltfish (11:00 position) tasted like potatoes with fish) and the bean salad (1:00 position) was different types of beans served hot with a dressing. All was tasty.
Every time I go to a beach I take this shot, something to look back on when the days get too long.
This plate is jerk chicken, red beans and rice and sausage. I loved the jerk chicken and the jerk sauce. Hot and spicy, but not too much.
T did the Dunn River Falls climb, I on the other hand decided that I would take pictures of the climb. I had my own personal tour guide, Nicola. She and I had a informative conservation as we were walking the path along the falls. Nicola was very smart, friendly and took good care of me.
T half was up the falls with her guide and group
The falls are the only falls in the world that run directly into the ocean
the finish line, T did great and it was another great birthday present

In December my sister and I took a short winter vacation to....
The beautiful island of Jamaica!
We stayed at a wonderful resort, weather was great; the above photo is a storm that was coming in.
Myself in a tree, climbed up forgetting that the down was about 4 foot off the ground!
beautiful blue water, white sand, warm breezes 88 degrees (31C) glorious sunshine.
T turned 50 while we were there. The only thing she wanted for her birthday was to have her rear end on a beach for her 50th birthday and so she did. The resort was great. All inclusive and this time we made a dent in the bar service. We got a drink everything we passed the bars. The food was super!
