Doug called us Sunday night to confirm our dinner date for Monday. We picked them up at five o'clock at their hotel and were instant friends. We took them on a short tour of the area and showed them where we live. They are extremely excited because they are awaiting a new addition to their family in February. They are hoping for a red head. Needless to say, we love red heads around here.
Nathan did a great job taking this picture of the four of us. I had my doubts, but he assured me he could handle it. And, he did. He even took one with Doug and Stephanie's camera.
We had dinner at The Native. At the Native, dining is outside on a lovely terrace overlooking the famous Hip Strip and the sea. It was a little warm and the mosquitoes were out but Todd had the bug deterer in the car and put it between Stephanie and me. It was so nice to talk to people that sound like we do (with their Southern accents) and share stories of being in Jamaica. Doug actually lived here about ten years ago, before they got married. And they have been to Jamaica countless times since.
In the foyer of the restaurant, they had a lot of typical souvenirs for sale along with a cabinet full of wooden bangle bracelets.
They came in all sizes and colors. I didn't ask how much they were.
After dinner we returned Doug and Stephanie to their hotel. Doug played Santa Claus and handed out American goodies for the three of us. Thanks, Doug and Stephanie for a wonderful evening and for the peanut M&M's and Hershey kisses. Nathan loved the airheads, as he tore into one of the boxes before we were able to get turned around in the hotel parking lot.
