Flowers, Bamboo and Flats

Hi Everyone! 

For everyone who has ever said I don't wear flats - this post is dedicated to you :) 
An impromptu drive to the beach with the kids yesterday and I was lucky to have some photos shot while passing through one of Jamaica's most scenic routes on the South Coast of Jamaica,
 Holland Bamboo. 


 The history of the 2 mile shaded archway is pretty interesting, Visit Jamaica states
 'The purpose of the grove, which dates back to the mid-1700s, was to provide shade for plantation slaves and owners from the estate en route to the town of Lacovia. In the 18th century, Lacovia alternated with Black River as the capital of the parish of St. Elizabeth.'

 Flats: Bridget // Sunnies: Mango (similar ASOS)

After many shots, the wind and the waves cooperated.

This is the way to end a great day... a sunset with family.

'When I admire the wonders of a sunset or the beauty of the moon, my soul expands in the worship of the creator.'

I'm not a travel blogger but thought I would drop some pointers down for my international readers and my Jamaican readers abroad who might appreciate the reminder of the wonders of Country life.

Things to do on the South Coast:

So, have you visited any of these great places before? and if not, are you now changing future plans to visit the untouched South Coast? Please drop a line and let me know your thoughts.

For all my carnival lovers out there, watch this video to get some style/beauty/safety tips from the pros. Be sure to pick up Monday's Flair Magazine in the Gleaner for something special that I was fortunate to be a part of. Have a great weekend everyone!!
