The Jamaica Chronicles : Day two

My second day was more relaxing than anything.

I woke up to the sounds of the rooster crowing. I stepped out onto the veranda, and noticed the sun rising over the mountain. The air was cool and misty. I made my way down to the front gate and admired the view.

I can’t tell the last time that I was able to watch the sun rise over a mountain.

I spent the late morning and early afternoon walking around the yard and taking pictures.

I loved the pink walls on the veranda. The walls were white during my previous visit.

I can see that the love for plants runs in the family, which reminds me that I should make a post about my houseplants soon.

I made a friend that day. She was so sweet but shy. I decided that I’d call her Milkshake.

Spotted a critter on the picture frame.

I may or may not have orchestrated a photo shoot on the veranda with freshly picked ackee from the tree in the backyard.

So green and lush.

In my next post, I will be sharing my experiences in Negril that following weekend. You can watch a short clip of what that was like here. Feel free to subscribe to my YouTube channel and turn on notifications so that you will be alerted when a new video is uploaded. 

My channel will be about lifestyle and geared towards travel, home decor, and self improvement/motivation.
