Jamaica 2012

Todd and I spent his 40th birthday in Jamaica. We were looking for an easy place to go, and there's a direct flight from Baltimore to Jamaica on AirTran! We left on Friday, May 4 and returned on Wednesday, May 9th. Todd's birthday was on May 7th.

I know that we usually go on these amazing scuba diving vacations and come home with these awesome underwater photos. Or, you see us doing things like hiking or sightseeing. Well, not in Jamaica. For this vacation, we chose to do NOTHING. I mean, NOTHING. We went every day and sat on the beach. 

Instead of staying in a resort, we decided to do something a little more low-key. We stayed at The Blue House, which is a B&B in Ocho Rios. After amazing food for breakfast, we headed down each day to Reggae Beach (about a 5 minute drive - folks at the Blue House drove us each day). We spent three days there, and for the first two days we were pretty much the only people on the whole beach.

Day 3, the cruise ship was in port. So, there was an excursion to Reggae Beach and the beach was packed with cruise ship people. We were given a special deal of all you can drink and eat for $45 each. So, we took it. That was Todd's birthday, so we had a really great time partying with the cruise ship folks.

Our first day, Todd made friends with a cat who lives at the beach.

As you can see, we were alone on the beach

We took "All you can drink" seriously on his birthday
For our last day, we decided that we had to see some of the sights around Ocho Rios, so we spent the morning hiking up Dunn's River Falls. Then, we headed over to the town, but it's the off season, so not much was open and not much was going on. We ended up hanging out in Margaritaville in their pool and playing on their waterslide.

We had a great time. It was a really perfect and relaxing way to celebrate Todd's birthday!
