Glass Bottom Boat

A glass-bottom boat is a boat with sections of glass, or other suitable transparent material, below the waterline allowing passengers to observe the underwater environment from within the boat.

The view through the glass bottom is better than simply looking into the water from above, because one does not have to look through optically erratic surface disturbances. The effect is similar to that achieved by a diving mask

Booby Cay

Booby Cay is an island off the coast of Jamaica. It is located in the Hanover parish, in the western part of the island. Booby Cay is surrounded by beautiful coral reefs that offer some of the best diving and snorkeling in the world. A stop on the little island will present the opportunity to eat fresh caught lobster cooked right on the beach. Yeah mon!

Blue Cave Castle

There is a castle in Jamaica built on the west coast of Jamaica near the town of Negril (west end near the lighthouse). The castle is built above a cave in the cliffs that was used by pirates in days gone by. The Blue Cave Castle sits 50 feet above the Caribbean Sea and operates as a hotel. It is a very unusual sight to see in a tropical setting.

Seagrape Tree

This is a seagrape tree (or, baygrape tree) on the west coast of Jamaica near the town of Negril. The tree is native to coastal beaches in southern Florida and the Caribbean. In late summer it bears a green fruit which ripens to a purplish color. The fruit itself contains a large pit that makes up most of the volume of the fruit.

Jamaican Cairn

A cairn is a human-made pile (or stack) of stones. In modern times, cairns are often erected as landmarks, a use they have had since ancient times. This cairn was built by the author on May 9, 2017. It is located on Bloody Bay, a part of 7 Mile Beach in Negril, Jamaica.
