Jamaica Mon.

I hope everyone had a WONDERFUL Thanksgiving holiday filled with green bean cassarole, mashed potatoes, turkey & LOTS of family time.  Me personally...I could go a VERY long time without seeing another green bean.

Today I'm doing another cruise recap, and can I just say, I would much rather be crusing thru the jungles of Jamaica with a rum punch in hand right now...

.....but hey, another day another dolla.

On Wednesday of our cruise week (Halloween!!) we ported in Jamaica.  And can I just say, I had NO idea the beautiful wilderness Jamaica had to offer! 

We pulled into port & were shocked at the mountainous view!

After being at sea for a couple days, we were ready to hit the pavement.  I don't know about other cruisers, but Jon & I are HUGE FANS of the shore excursion's Carnival has to offer.  One of our favorite parts of cruising is spending the first couple days at sea, going thru the booklet of all the different options you have to choose from.  As much as we absolutely LOVED our all inclusive beach parties & snorkeling excursions we signed up for on our honeymoon, we decided to switch gears and see more of the beautiful islands we ported in OUTSIDE of just the beautiful water & beaches.

If you haven't heard of Chukka Caribbean Adventure , check them out folks.  They have the most fantastic tours & even more badass tour guides.  We chose the 4x4 Safari Tour and were so thankful we did!  We love getting out of the tourist parts of the country & seeing real, authentic areas of the townships.  And the Safari Tour provided us that.

We capped off the day with a trip to Jimmy Buffett's Margaritaville where the views were TO DIE for!

Then back to the boat to Flintsone up.

Did I mention we were Fred & Wilma this year? LOVED how the costumes turned out!

Thank You Amazon.

Another Fred & Wilma! 

But c'mon.  There's just no comparison, right? ;)

And this is what we looked like after a day crusin' thru the hills of Jamaica capped off with an amazing Halloween night.

We'd do it all again....right Fred?
