    Traveling left out of the market yard you’ll see a line of cookshops with the ocean as their backdrop. On the right side of the street are more businesses. At the end of that half mile stretch and across from Folly Field is Ramtullas market where I do 95% of my shopping during my stay. I like it because it’s roomy, they have everything I need and I know where everything is. Well, they don't have a cambio...yet. Yes there are quite a few stores down town, but they are always crowded. Tight isles and folks squeezing by IN THAT HEAT kinda unnerves me so I rarely go in those.

    Winnifred Beach

    Now on to my favorite chill places…the beaches of Portland…well some of them. The first beach you would come to from Port Antonio is Winnifred Beach. It used to be a hassle to get to the beach because the narrow unpaved road was horrible. A lot of drivers wouldn’t even take you if there was a recent heavy rain. But the new route and repaired road makes going down either by foot or car so much easier.

    The beach is maintained by the vendors who do an excellent job keeping it clean and safe. There is no set fee to enter, but a person sits at the foot of the road to collect donations. Once you get down there you will see how whatever you give is put to good use.







    After securing my space and getting that first drink in hand, I spend the first hour listening to my reggae tunes and journaling. Thanks Sammy!!!!!

    You can always find me perched in front of I-Cliff’s beverage stand. He, the guy on the left, also rents lounges for $5/day. Great guy who keeps and eye on me and my belongings whenever I roam around.

    Here is some roasted breadfruit I-Cliff’s friend shared with us. I tell you, this hit the spot. It was tender, moist and full of flavor. This and a small cup of soup kept me satisfied until dinner.

    This is my adopted nephew, Shane, who came to keep me company one day. We always hook up on Boston Beach so it was nice chilling with him in different surroundings. He’s an excellent young cook. When he’s not working construction, he’s cooking for folks on the Boston Beach. I decided to have him cook for me during my August reach. I will share how that turned out when I get to the Boston Beach part of this posting.
