Hello Beautiful Humans,
One of the reasons I enjoy going to Jamaica so much is that I have no cell phone reception. Yes, you read correctly – I just openly declared that I do enjoy being without cell service from time to time. Don’t get me wrong, as soon as we pull up to the gate of my family’s home I whip out my phone to connect to the wifi – but in hindsight I truly enjoy my phoneless time!
Being a mini-nature freak (I say mini because it’s not like I am out here hugging trees) I love checking out Jamaica’s natural beauty and just being able to live in the moment. When I was there earlier this summer I got the chance to head out to the east coast and visit Reach Falls in Portland. Rushing falls leading to sparkling turquoise pools, Reach Falls has a little for those who want the excitement and some for those who just want to take it easy.
Being the thrill seeker that I can be – of course I opted for the adventurous route. My life quickly flashed before my eyes as I was trying to emerge on the other side of the gushing water.
Note to future self: make sure you know how deep the water is on the other side of the cave.
Second note to future self: avoid emerging through waterfalls with large sharp rocks on the other side.
All in all it was a beautiful day spent with family at the falls and I would do all again in a heartbeat – despite the slightly life-threatening experience!
