A walk down the five mile stretch from the cliffs to the beach of Negril reminds me of a few things:
– it’s hot in the sunshine here;
– thank god I have a hat (a hatless Julianne in the sunshine is a cranky Julianne with less energy);
– the sunshine makes us both forgetful; and,
– there is so much beauty here!
David and I had a few errands to run and things we wanted to buy to bring home, so we chose this day to walk down to the beach. We decided to take it slow and stop at points along the way. The water and cliffs are gorgeous.
It’s a long haul, and I was really happy that we stopped at Xtabi, a resort about an hour walk from our hotel. David had been here before and it’s a nice little relaxing spot where we relaxed with a Ting (Jamaica’s version of Sprite, with grapefruit flavour).
There are also caves here, so we went down for a look (we have stopped here before).
We also noticed some interesting “Adam and Eve” statues around the gardens.
After we left, and a few minutes down the road, David said to me, “so, you didn’t notice the bats?”
“The BATS??” I sort of shrieked.
This is how much David loves me/knows me. He notices some bats flying around the cave and instead of notifying me, he calmly lead us out the cave and down the street. Before telling me. To avoid the hysteria that would certainly follow. I love this guy!
We kept walking to Chicken Lavish, the home of the best fried Chicken either of us has ever had. Fried, but not greasy. The best.
Finally, we headed into the Hi Lo grocery story and got everything we thought we needed. Except cat treats for Marley – which was a big part of why we wanted to go there in the first place. Poor Marley and our sunshine brains! She’s having to make do with scraps of egg in the morning and chips in the late afternoon.
