    Lunch was Red Stripes at Maybelles at the Pier. We had a lot of fun with the girls working and met a couple that had drove up for the day to visit Port Antonio. We walked with them to the craft center and introduced them to Rock Bottom so they could pick up some souvenirs.

    We decided to go rafting on the Rio Grande on Monday, so I called Devon and shamelessly dropped Vi's name to arrange to have him take us around for the day. The drive to the river was beautiful, and along the way we picked up a captain (Capt 26). Now he isn't a captain with the rafting company, but I liked him, and we didn't mind having him take us. Plus, Devon vouched for him.
    The river was gorgeous and the weather was perfect.

    I brought my little speaker along, so we were jamming to some music with the captain singing along. I did forget to bring a cooler with beer...dang.

    Just when I was kicking myself for not bringing some liquid refreshments, we came around a bend and saw this

    Now, for those of you who have rafted down the river, you know that means....Belinda's food!!
    I almost jumped in and ran to shore because this is the type of food I love. Plus there was beer!

    This woman is an absolute sweetheart and one of the best cooks I've met in Jamaica!

    We had a great lunch and while we were hanging out, we finally saw some other rafters. A couple from California, and another from Georgia. Oddly enough, after talking to them we realized that not only did they both have MN connections, but ones that were very close to the place we live.
    Two years ago, we met a doctor that was from the next town over from us. This may not seem strange to most people, but we live in a town of 450 people, and the surrounding area is about the same.

    Jumped back onto the raft and continued down the river until right before the official end. Remember, our captain was rogue. Devon picked us up and we headed to do some more exploring.

    We had wonderful weather the entire time we were there. Every morning it would rain right around 8:00 am, then the sun would come out and it turned hot and humid, just how I like it!

    We decided to walk into town and try Yousch Café at the craft center for dinner. Along the way we came across some schoolkids gathered around a drainage ditch. Two of the boys were down trying to catch some of the small crabs that had gathered. We chatted with them for awhile. They're always so shy at first, and then they open up and start asking all sorts of questions.
    When we were leaving, one of the boys asked for J$50, and before I could even answer his sister grabbed him and started banging him against a fence yelling at him
    "No! Momma said to never beg from people!"
    Kind of reminds me of my sister always kicking my butt when I did something wrong. (Not that it happened all that often..Hee hee)
    Had dinner and then chilled awhile with Rock Bottom at the craft center.

    The man is truly talented and I love what he does with driftwood. I never got any pictures of him, we were having fun just talking to him and to the other vendors.
