Couples Sans Souci Resort, Day 4, September 7, 2010

Every morning the grounds staff drag the beach. The grounds were very well cared for and someone was always working on them.

We boarded the van around 10 a.m. for Dunns River Falls. Mark and Vicki had been to the falls before so they stayed behind. Our entrance to the falls was paid with our all inclusive stay. I heard the cost to do the falls was $80 per person! Plus tips for the guides! Wow!

I took the following pics with a waterproof camera and scanned the images so they aren't as clear as my digital camera but I think you'll get the idea of how the adventure went.

Here is Connie just before we entered the falls.

They had prepared us for a cold entrance into the water. The guide began by walking us into the ocean where the water spills from the falls and it was quite cool! They begin the climb by having you sit into the running water.

Just up the first portion of the climb I took this pic looking back toward the ocean below.

A very wet Connie!

The climb took many twists and turns and there were some steep elevation changes. The overall climb is 900 feet horizontally. I'm not sure of the vertical elevation change but I'd put it in the 150 foot range.

A pair of water shoes is required to do the climb. I noticed that our guides were not wearing any shoes at all and they didn't really look where they stepped either. They were very familiar with the falls and where to go.

We found time for a quick kiss in the cold water!

Up, up, and up.

Finally, we go to the top! The climb took about 45 minutes.

When we returned to the resort Connie and I decided to take a ride on the Hobie Cat with Mark as our captain. He is very experienced with sailing so all we had to do was enjoy the ride.

After our sail we headed to the beach!

While on the beach I enjoyed a Montecristo No. 2

We loved the floats! Looks like Connie does too!

An Oliva V torpedo was the next cigar.

The excitement was too much for Jim. Nap time!

A couple from England got married this afternoon. They came down to the beach to have some pics taken.

After the beach it was time for the outdoor buffet. We dressed "formal" for a summer resort affair. Here is Connie looking beautiful. 

And here I am 

The had lots of lights in the trees and a wonderful buffet 

Jim and Ginger sat with us.

And that ends another wonderful day.
