Dunn's River Falls, my sister said. It was a must-see while in Jamaica...one of her favorite memories while on the island for her honeymoon many years ago. So it was nice to have that bit of guidance as we stepped off the ship and were bombarded with tour operators and cab drivers all clamoring for our attention.
And she was right. The waterfall was much bigger than I anticipated, and hiking up it was tremendous amounts of fun!
Rebekah got adventurous and let them slide her down a part of the waterfall. Also push her backwards into a deep pool...
On our way to the waterfall, our cab driver/tour guide took us to an overlook where we could see the bay and city down below. It was remarkably pretty.
On our way home a shopping stop was offered. But we were completely soaked through and only really had 45 mins till we wanted to be back on board the ship so we declined. Literally five minutes after returning to the ship the clouds opened and poured rain down harder than I've seen in a long time. I'm glad we hadn't been out shopping in that!
Key West had been my least anticipated port of the four we were scheduled to stop at. Key West was just Florida. And not to knock Florida, but I was on a Caribbean cruise and I'd wanted another Caribbean island. But see, I'd never been there. I'd not realized the delightfulness that is Key West.
We rented bikes and explored the island on pedal power. Because I had the most experience biking, we attached Lilian on a tag-along to the back of my bike and off we went, all six of us.
Up next....Universal Studios and Harry Potter!
