Jamaica Man

Just so you know, Jamaicans really do say Man after everything they say. I was lucky enough to spend my birthday in Jamaica this year. It was beautiful and so much fun. We stayed at the Sandals Grande Ocho Rios and it was unreal! We flew into Montego Bay and took a terrifying 90 minute drive to our resort. They put us in a beautiful room that had a private pool with 2 other rooms. Lucky for us the other 2 rooms were empty while we were there. There was so much to do there. We lounged in the pool, played basketball, darts, ping-pong, checkers, pool and shuffleboard. There was lots of fun entertainment every night. On my birthday we hiked these amazing falls called Dunn's River Falls. That was one of my favorite things we did the entire time. You start at the beach and then you climb 900 feet in the falls. The pictures tell the best story, so here they are!

Happy Birthday to me! Our dinner was on the pier over the water. It was perfect!

Do you watch The Office? Sandals Jamaica (I'm guessing there is only one) is where Michael and Jan take a trip. I'm so glad you had a great birthday.
