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.

I Wanna Be A Lifeguard

I want an ocean and some sunscreen lotion. Take me to the beach with a thousand pretty girls in reach. Hardly any clothes, sand between my toes and white stuff on my nose. Sitting on my chair in the salty air. Lounging on the deck with a whistle ’round my neck.

Three O’Clock Roadblock

This is a photograph of some roadside military action taking place in the town of Negril, Jamaica. Seems a little more serious than just a police response as noted by the presence of full combat gear and weapons. Maybe it was just routine. Who knows?

“Three o’clock in the rain. And a roadblock, Lord.”
