Yesterday was a spectacular day and probably the best one so far in Jamaica. First we were given a tour of the local Beaches Resort here in Ocho Rios. Beaches is Sandals line of family resorts. Just like Sandals, Beaches is a luxury included resort but with a several extra family friendly amenities like and Xbox Gaming room, this arts and crafts centre…
and a water park!
There’s nothing like a water slide to bring the kid out in you. We tried them all even the little ones designed for smaller kids. It was amazing.
As an added bonus, your favorite Sesame Street characters are always wandering around the park for photos with the kids. You can even get your child’s favorite to come up to your room and tuck the kids in at night. How cute is that?
Then we hit the beach again for a once in a lifetime experience, releasing baby sea turtles into the ocean. Thank you to the Sandals Foundation for such a moving experience. We all fell a little bit in love with our little ocean babies.
This is my boy Fred. I hope we meet again one day.
This is end of a long journey across the beach for this baby sea turtle but just the beginning of a very long life. This is Fred and he could live up to 100 years and travel thousands and thousands of miles. Thanks to @SandalsFdn for this once in a lifetime experience. #stepintosandals #CanadaLiveFromSandals #animalconservation #seaturtles #nature #freshmornings @1005freshradio
