 Today my friends aunt was coming to pick us up at 10. I went for breakfast at 9:30. My friend was there earlier and she got some plantains today but they weren’t very ripe. Breakfast was the same as yesterday for me so I didn’t take any pictures. In the morning I did call for some bottles of water to my room but it was too early I learned I could get some at the buffet.  My friends aunt was delayed so had time to sit at the coffee shop. This was the view from the coffee area. We chatted with security and the taxi driver at the hotel for awhile before we left. We didn’t leave the hotel until 12. My friends aunt got proper plantains we ate it in the car. Today we decided to go to Ocho Rios. I have never been there and it is not that far from where we are staying. We have a driver booked for tomorrow to take us around the area and Bob Marley house tour. My friends aunt wanted Pizza Hut we stopped in a plaza that had KFC, Starbucks, and Pizza Hut. Last time I was in Jamaica I saw the plan

May 27, 2018 Wild Whale Watching Tour Granville Island


My brother booked the tour as a present for his girlfriend and invited me along as they will be moving out of Vancouver soon. We met up at Granville Island and headed to the office where they informed us that we will have to sign waiver forms and we will be wearing the full body suit life jackets. I wasn't expecting that it was a super hot day. The tour leader was knowledgable and knew what size suit to give us. There was around 30 people on the tour on a new boat. Another thing I wasn't expecting was that it was going to be an open boat on our walk to the boat the tour leader gave us a talk about where to sit in the boat there was disadvantages to every location. When we got on the boat we were at the back and didn't end up having a choice of where to sit so ended up in the back. The seats were in threes so two of all the rows were taken. The seats were like beach chairs comfy to sleep in hard to get up out of. The boat also went really fast we could get up and walk around but I found I had to wait until they slowed down which only happened if something was close to the boat. The companies all communicate with each other in the area they see the whales so they know where to head it took around 2 hours before we got to see whales and it was hard to crowd in the area where everyone can see the whales but I managed. Once we saw the whales then we looked at other wildlife on the way back we saw sea lions and bald eagles. It was faster to go back but the tour did take around 4 hours. It was really hot I usually tan but the second time in my life I got sunburned I wasn't prepared for an open boat on a really hot day. It was a nice tour the tour guide and the company were great.  I made my first imovie and uploaded my first ever you tube video of the whale tour it turned out pretty good for a first attempt you can see it here.https://youtu.be/zPn6U0SsYIs
