Room 56

From my balcony there is much to behold,
From cruise ships,visitors pouring into Jamaica,
young, middle aged and the old,
Different shapes,colour and style of dressing,
To Ocho Rios the pier is truly a blessing,
Smooth white sand and crystal clear blue sea,
Jamaican girls in straw hats and bath-suits,
entertaining under tents and coconut trees,
Tourist swimming,dancing,being massaged,
or just tanning,enjoying the sun and tropical breeze,
Taking tours on glass bottom boats or just
 riding the sea on jet skis,
 Surrounded by Jamaica Grand,Rooms,Sand Castle,
Turtle Towers and Fisherman Point,
This I believe is truly, one of Jamaicas favourite tourist joint......


From my balcony,Room 56,Fishermans Point.....

    You also got my place Richard. I sit out and watch the cruise ships pass while I sip at a glass and look down on the blue Mediterranean Sea. I feel Gods blessing every time I do. God Bless, Dave.

    It's so interesting to read what you see from your balcony. From my window there is so much green. The trees are all out in green now and they are reflected in the small lake. The pink cherry blossom has gone to be replaced by purple lilac - - - but I bet the temperature is warmer where you are. They tell us it will be 24 here tomorrow. I'll believe it when I feel it, ha ha.
