Jamaica Photos

Hey blogger friends! As I promised I thought I would share just a few of our vacation pictures!! I did not want to bore you with all of the photos and tried to show the most interesting ones!!
I hope you enjoy them!! I may post others later, but for now this will do.

This is our pink palace. Our room had an ocean view from the bottom floor. Due to my health I had to have a ground floor!
I love the pink and cream colors of the buildings!! The cream is brought in through the beautiful scrolled iron railings and the gutters!!

I hear the beach calling me.........come lay on my golden sands! Let your eyes rest on the beautiful Caribbean blue!! Feel the warmth of the sun on your face!!

These step led up to the lobby. It is the back entrance from the pool! That's my sweetie standing on the steps!!

I wish I was still there!

We were entertained on the beach every day by Jamaicans who would walk the beach to earn money for their families. This gentleman at my request sang Happy Birthday to my hubby!

The ladies who make up our rooms each day took great pride in their work!! We always left a tip for them!! Each day we would have a different piece of towel art on our bed! This was the best ever, the two swans kissing are adorable!! Don't you think?

The Jamaican's do some beautiful wood art!! Don't you just love the detail in this piece!

I wanted to show you some of the art that was hanging in the lobby of the Rio Tropical!

The florals in this art work is absolutely gorgeous!

I love the bird in this piece of art work!!

  2. Jamaica is a wonderful place. So glad you had good trip.

  3. i would trade that for this weather, for sure! so glad you enjoyed your trip, and i checked out your house progress too. exciting!

  4. Those bird prints are beautiful. I'd be excited to get back to my room just to see the towel art, though I wouldn't want to ruin the art by using the towel that day.

    As for the beach view, well let me put it this way......looking outside my window today I see gray skies and a dusting of snow. Not a pretty snow, just a dusting.

  5. Susan, It looks like a fabulous trip and your photos are great. I wish I could be there's pretty cold here in Virginia.
    Happy Holidays,
