State Of Emergency

Lucky 13

Wow, this will be my thirteenth trip to Negril, and it still seems brand new to me. Always a different mix of people and situations, always something new. This time I’m going with my lovely and talented daughter Kristine, and my friends Jason and Megan will be staying right across the yard from us.

Wheels up at 6AM tomorrow from JFK, a short layover in Kingston Jamaica before heading over to Montego Bay. At first I was bummed about the layover and the non-direct flight, but since we will deal with immigration while we’re waiting in Kingston, we will be able to bolt to Negril as soon as we land in MoBay.

A few tweaks to my packing list and then I’m going to try to get a few hours sleep…
