Kirsten - Your absolutely right nothing is going to spoil this vacation. We also leave a day early and spend the night in Boston which is always fun and so convenient. Mike & Shanna Have a great time next week. A couple of weddings going on.** Just remember we have the CSA bartender that makes the best mojitos in all the Caribbean.* Doesn't get much better than that. Mike & Carol see you in Charlotte. We get in at 8:30am.Jamie & Jon We'll probably talk lots before we leave. All packed and ready to go with plenty of bug wipes!* LOLSuch great info on this Message Board.
Anyone checked out the weather for JA? Rain seems normal... calls for rain each day, but, seems to be the consensus from most on here that it just clouds up and rains for a short bit during the afternoons. Which is what happened last year at CSS. The heat index is around 110.. with temps in the 90's, and in the evenings looks like it's hovering around 82-85 degrees. Sunset is around 6:30 pm right now, FYI. Definitely pack the cool clothing! Lots of bug dope.. I see reports on tripadvisor about folks who are eaten by the buggies (especially the ladies, and especially at night).
For those of us leaving on Sat the 12th, we're almost in the single digits!!
Troy and Jen: Have a safe trip, I know you guys are arriving this weekend!!
Thanks JoyceS. We plan to have a super time,, you do the same! Can I ask you one question?? Do we need water shoes for the catamaran? Don't want to overpack after reading all the threads. Thank you in advance, Shanna
Jamie wasn't Troy & Jen getting married today ?* Maybe it was someone else.Shanna I didn't hear about water shoes for the boat trip ( I'm not bringing any just flip flops ), but they did mention bringing them last year when we were at CSS and the trip was the falls instead of the catamaran cruise, if you didn't have them it was $6.00 to rent.I'm trying to pack light (Yeah right) !
Well this may be my last post till we get back!!! Just started packing, I am feeling a little ill ( I wonder if it's the nerves), Troy is all bruised up from playing paintball for his stage ( not the smartest thing he could have done), and I have to work everyday till we leave Maybe I'll take some sick days!! I will see everyone on the 12th!!! We hope you all have safe and hassle free flights!!! Cheers! Jenn
Getting Married September 26th and will be in paradise September 29th-October 5th.
First trip to Jamaica and really excited about it...dont have a great picture on my work computer but here is a picture right before he proposed and one of him down on one knee....I still get excited when I see these pictures. Can't wait to grab a cocktail with everyone at the swim up bar!
I just had to post something.... our thread is slowly sinking to the bottom. One week from tomorrow for us Sept. 12-ers
All this anticipation for months and months, and we're finally down to one week remaining.
Joyce, I stowed The Book into my carry-on bag... just in case we want to brush up on our perverse Patois slang on the plane.
Have your romance rewards # ready, flight info, and t-shirt size request. I was able to pre-check-in just now, a week early. Might make check-in at the resort faster, if they already have our flight numbers and such.
Grrrr... the closer it gets ~ the more concerned we are that the week will just fly by..
Oh Please Lil' Week~ won't you please goooo slowwwwwww
I think we should do the majority of our sleeping on the beach Stay up late in the evenings... and not sleep in until noon, but get up at a reasonable time and have breakfast, a couple mimosas or what-have-you, and then naptime on the beach.
OK Last post on the Message Board. Off to Boston later to spend the night before our early flight. YES Jaime we are staying up late and sleeping on the beach. The four of us have been planning this trip since January, I want this week to go really SLOW ! See you guys at the airport.
You too Jagoram. Where have you been
Last one here as well; looks like there's no problems flying out of RIC in the morning (Carol was worred the 5:30 flight might be cancelled, but all flights in tonight are pretty full because of tomorrow's NASCAR race here, so the planes have to go back with something!) We'll probably wake up the TSA guy, since ours is the first passenger flight of the morning, and the next one isn't until 6:00!
