We landed at Sangster International Airport yesterday without any issues...there were a few incidents with turbulence during the flight but nothing like our last two flights home. The ride to the hotel was non-eventful as well; I did start to believe that the Husband was going to push the driver out of his seat and drive all by himself because the guy was driving slooooow (we have never driven with a slow driving Jamaican before!) the van was like the little engine who could ... I think I can, I think I can. We made it though, safe and sound onto the beautiful grounds of Couples Sans Souci in Ocho Rios. We have abeachfront room which is awesome because the famed penthouses are up on a cliff and I don't think I could do the stairs to the cliff more than once a day then still have to walk the steps up to the rooms too ... Sorry, I am just to out of shape.

We had lunch yesterday at the beach grill then headed out into the ocean for a bit. Lots of people kept telling me that I need to keep reminding myself that I am not on Negril and now I know why. The beaches over here are beautiful but a little rocky and there is seaweed in this cove, making the walk into the water a bit less pleasant than the sandy bottoms of Bloody Bay. Not that I am complaining, it is simply beautiful, as I am sure I just said ten times already.

I am sitting on our porch now listening to the waves, the sprinklers and the purple martins banter to one another. It is very relaxing. I will have to make it a point to call home later to check in on mom and the kidlets, especially since some punk stabbed Twink in the hand at school yesterday with a pencil!
