    oh my....I'm soooo glad you got to talk to him. He's a sweetheart and a wealth of history. Sounds like Portland did you proper!!! What did you have at Yousch's? I've only had breakfast from there and it was good.

    We just had a small supper at Yousch's, and it was...meh. Looking over the menu, breakfast looked like we should have come back and tried it. Maybe next visit!

    We decided to go to Reach Falls the next day, so we arranged another outing with Devon. He picked us up and away we went to see Portland on our way..

    Apparently this is the tallest bridge in Jamaica according to Devon, so we jumped out to take a quick picture of the dropoff. Now, I don't know if it is the tallest or not, but I'm pretty sure I wouldn't jump.

    On and on we went, around curving roads when we suddenly stopped and a young man jumped into the back seat.
    "This is my schoolmate. He's a guide at the falls."
    Ok, cool. We were pretty early so maybe we're giving him a ride to work.

    Nope...

    We drove on a little further then pulled over to the side of the road. Devon and his mate got out and said "We're here".
    Now keep in mind while I've never been to Reach Falls, I have seen pictures of it on Vi's trip reports, and this did not look like that. But, who knows? Maybe that's what the place looks like at first.
    We proceeded down a trail in the woods, and came out to the river.
    "Reach Falls closed today".
    What? Huh?
    What are we doing here then?
    That's right, we had our own private tour of walking UP the river to the falls.
    Two things you need to know:
    1: While I admire people who exercise, I don't want to. Call me lazy if you want.
    2: We had no way of changing into our bathing suits, and I was wearing a sundress. Not a normal outfit for rock climbing.
    But we'll try anything at least once. (I really gotta change that policy..Soon or later someone's going to make me eat brains or something yucky.)
    Started out, and I thought "hmm this isn't too bad. I can handle this."
    But as we went further on, it got harder and harder.
    "Put your foot here and push off"
    Umm...that's all fine when you're a foot taller than I am..

    Midway up I starting thinking about what would happen if I fell and hit my head (don't laugh, I have a history)

    How long would it take for an ambulance?
    Is there an ambulance?
    Would they find my body washed down the river?

    My mind goes to the weirdest places!

    But it was beautiful!

    It was beautiful......until I fell into the river!
    I moved fast though, and saved the phone from a dunking. I wasn't so fortunate.

    We were almost at the top and I thought
    "Yay! I can see the steps! This isn't so bad!"
    "No, you can't go any further. The falls are closed, and the security guards are sitting there."
    "Can't we bribe them so I can walk up the stairs and you can just pick me up on the road?"
    "No no no. We have to walk back down like we came up."

    I was going to argue, but then I thought Devon's friend might get into trouble doing a tour on his day off, so back down we went.
