As promised, here are the photos from our first day off the ship while on our Carnival Cruise last month. We docked in Montego Bay, Jamaica early that morning, so when we woke up and looked out the windows, we could see land. This was exciting for us after being surrounded by water for the past 2 days and we could not wait to explore together and spend the day on the beach. The water was so insanely beautiful—clean, clear, warm, and the most beautiful aqua color. We spent the day with no real plans and just played on the beach for hours, swam in the ocean, collected seashells, and looked for blue crabs, which were all over the underside of the dock we were by. I’ll let the photos do the talking…
We ate lunch at a little beach cafe. We had jerk chicken, plantains, Jamaican rice and beans, frozen lemonade, and ice cream. Aubrey and I had ice-cold Red Stripe beer, which is brewed in Jamaica. So refreshing! Afterwards, we explored some nearby shops and people-watched before heading back to the ship. Birdie is obsessed with Pikachu and was so happy to find a Jamaican Pikachu stuffed toy, complete with Rastafarian hat and braids. Ha!
We were parched by the sun and exhausted after our day on the island. We loved Jamaica and took with us some really beautiful memories and photos that I am looking forward to blowing up and having printed to hang in our home. I’ll be back soon to share photos of our time in Mexico! Stay tuned.
