    I wasn't as grumpy as I looked lol! Just hot, tired and wishing I could jump in but I didn't want to have wet clothes for the drive back.
    It was a different experience but I'm glad we did it.
    Don't fire Devon Vi! He apologized for not knowing the falls were closed. And he's really a likeable young man!😎

    CUTE dress, Maralunatic, and you don't look grumpy at all. That's what I love about Portland, the stunning scenery is dimensional. Seeing views in your pictures makes it look like a totally different place. Sorry about your fall and the climbing adventure, but I glad you had a good time just the same. Like I said, I want to check out that side of the falls, however I'm a little concerned about maintaining my balance. I'm also much heavier then you...do you think I could handle the hike?

    lol...Okay, I'll hold on to Devon. I'm glad you felt comfortable riding with him. I'm tough on drivers and have no problem leaving them and their taxis at the curb if they do me wrong. But I'm extra tough if they wrong anyone I sent to them.

    Vi, I won't lie, there were a few times I was not comfortable on the climb. Trying to balance was not always easy, but I do know that we took a slightly easier route back, and water shoes are a must! So maybe there's a way that you're not always climbing around rocks.

    After leaving the falls, we were hungry so we headed to Boston to try the jerk.

    After hearing so much about the jerk sausage, I knew I had to try it and it was AMAZING! We make our own venison sausage at home, and I was trying to pick their brains how they made it, but those guys are pretty tight lipped! I'm going to have to experiment at home..NOM NOM NOM!
    We never made it to the beach, but we did stop at Long Bay on the way back from the falls.

    Apparently Devon needed to work up his appetite, since he was running around the beach!

    Winnifred beach was next on our list, and we stopped there for a couple of hours on the way back. I really liked this beach...couple of funky little bars and a few people it had a great vibe.
    You had a few vendors walking around, but they were very low key about it and seemed more interested in talking to you than selling stuff.

    Great pics and a good fun read, especially since I am sitting in Minneapolis , on April 8th, and it's snowing ......

    Jojo,
    I'm sitting in west central MN, and it's still snowing here too! I'm ready to book my next trip because I'm not sure we'll get spring. Or that new season, sprinter!

    We decided to spend our next day just chilling at a beach, so we had Devon drop us off at Frenchman's Cove.
    Looking at the scenery just on the walk in made me know that it was going to be beautiful!

    We rented a couple of loungers, grabbed some Red Stripes from the bar, and settled in.
    The beach was pretty deserted and the sound of the waves could easily put you to sleep.

    Thanks for the great report Maralunatic! I have been following along and enjoying it! Portland is an amazing place! We only made it to Negril this year, which is always great Hopefully our next trip will be a bit longer and we'll have time for Portland again!

    I am sitting is Wisconsin on April 9th and it's snowing Supposed to be almost 60 degrees later this week though!

    I'll be in beloved Negril in 10 days, hopefully, when I return it will be spring........ so I have to ask you Maranulanic, as lovely as Port Antonio seems to be, did you miss Negril madly ????
