Our trip to Kingston was not going to be complete without a visit to Hellshire Beach, St. Catherine. Wanted to have a little salt water and the day was perfect for it. We left the Sunrise Breakfast fete, grabbed our swim suits and headed for the beach. Screechies was recommended for a good vibe and great food. We were not disappointed. We picked our fish and our lobster enjoyed some cold beverages as we waited for it to be fried and steamed on the spot. We could not ask for a better mix of sun, fun, great food and good vibes!!!
So it was finally here...ROAD MARCH!!! Months of working out ...ok, maybe it was a crash diet a week before (not advised) we were ready to get on the road in all our splender. We stepped out of the car and our feathers were blowing in the wind, and we were grateful for the breeze. We immediately joined the band and it was excitement on arrival. The music (and drink) trucks we moving along Old Hope Road and people were full of energy, masqueraders and spectators alike. It was hot, but with the wind in our faces, the soca blasting, the drinks flowing, all we cared about was having a grand time. Hands in the sky, wineing our waists, singing "Cheers to Life, put your problems dem to the side, cuz it's a blessing to be alive, hug up a stranger now start to wine" We stopped for lunch and depending on your section you had a plethora of options, from chinese to Bar-B-Q, Indian to Italian, you name it and it was available. We used the next hour or so to eat, freshen up and rest up for the second part of the day. I even had a massage. We left the lunch park ready for part 2, it was hot but the breeze was still there. After a few hours the eurphoria continued as we chipped through the streets. We looked up to see a slightly overcast sky and before you knew it, here came the rain to cool things down. It was amazing!! The rain seemed to give us more life rather than slow us down. We continued to make our way through the streets and we picked up non masqueraders following the band along with us. We made our way into the mas camp for dinner and last lap. JAMAICA carnival is small but has BIG VIBES...The Addicts will be back!
