Been too busy to write! We've done so much.... We went to Rocklands Bird Sanctuary and Mayfield Falls one day. What an amazing place Rocklands is, the Doctor Birds (hummingbirds) sit on your finger while you feed them sugar water from an old airline size liquor bottle. The birds around the place were amazing.
Mayfield Falls was another fun part of our day, we had to hike into the falls for about a 1/4 mile in the heat, then to the falls. We could hear them long before we saw them. The falls is on a 23 mile long river with 11 waterfalls, they take you right into the water and you walk up all the falls to the "Washing Machine" at the top where it all starts, with a washing machine type action with the water. It was ice cold and refreshing for such a hot day. We had lunch afterwards and it was fantastic, the Jamaicans know how to make a mean lobster dish!
We've also been to 9 Mile, the birth and resting place of Bob Marley. It's a very long 2 1/2 hour trip but through little towns and lots and lots of jungle. Once there you go through a huge locked gate and then the lock you all in (including the tour busses and taxi's). As much as we liked the idea of seeing where Bob was born it was disrespectful how they are milking tourists to visit and walk around his tomb. But I'm glad we went. Afterwards, we went into 9 Mile town and gave away bags of goodies to some of the children, it was nice to see the smiles on their faces.
We're having a great time, it's hot, hot hot and today it rained for about an hour which was so nice, it cooled things off for a little bit.
Tomorrow is diving day for Alex and spa day for Kira and I. Glad we still have a week left!
