Jamaica journal: warm, blue waters and rainbows

By Linda Waggener

Four friends took a once-in-a-lifetime trip recently, flying south out of the USA, passing over Cuba and flying right under a rainbow over Montego Bay as they prepared to land in the small island country of Jamaica.

Debbie Yates, Paula Miller and Cheri Hutchison from Columbia, and Lisa Turner Brown, an Adair County native now living in Huston, TX, visited with each other as they experienced special places in Jamaica for a week recently.


Debbie said, "Paula Miller and I went parasailing on the Caribbean -- that was lots of fun!" That photo led her daughter Jyn to post the note under her social media photo, "That's my mama Debbie Yates parasailing in Jamaica -- just in case you wonder where I got my independence and sense of adventures and travel from!"

She said that, since this was her first trip out of the country, going through customs was a very different experience -- they asked many questions, including if there were any perishable items. You aren't allowed to take fruit, nor any sea shells unless they were purchased there.

Rick's Cafe in Negril, Jamaica, is one of the most popular spots. It's where she said they saw the most beautiful water ever.

They also went to Luminous Lagoon, one of only three places in the world where the lagoon lights up when something hits the water. They stayed at the Grande Palladium in Lucea, Jamaica.

Debbie said, "I would recommend the trip to anyone -- it's always good to be back home in Columbia, but seven days didn't seem like long enough there!!
