Something to Look at Sunday?! Ya, mon!

Wa gwan?!

As some of you may or may not have noticed, I've been absent from the blogs (though I was everso sneaky by scheduling a few posts--still catching up on those great comments from the post about writing on a schedule... good stuff!).

I have good reason for my absence!

This morning, I was here:
Jamaica!


Hubs was a groomsman in a destination wedding! (Yes, he's a foot taller than me... when we took the group picture, the photographer said I couldn't stand next to him, and he moved me to the other side next to people I didn't know! haha)

So sweet...

Instead of rice, we threw flower petals!

The water of the Caribbean is unlike any other place. Pictures can't even capture the true color.

Last night's sunset.

Another photo of last night's sunset.

We had a great time in Negril. The weather was hot and humid (nothing I'm not used to, being from Houston), but the breeze made it just right. Our Jamaican hosts were wonderful, the wedding went off with only one repeated hitch... during the reception, the power to the resort was knocked out several times! The band was jammin'! (And also pulled too much electricity!)

It was a great experience... I have the sunburn on my nose and shoulders to prove it!

So what does "Wa gwan?" mean? Any guesses?

  1. My guess is: Wa gwan = Where are you going?

    Am I right, am I right?

    What a gorgeous place! I'm glad you had such a fun reason to be away from your blog. :)

  6. You were so close to the Bahamas and you didn't hop over to Nassau to visit me?? Haha! J/K! It sounds like you had a wonderful time! I'm so glad. Give me until tomorrow. Then I can ask my Jamaican friend what Wa Gwan means. :D

    I think you're right about the water, though I have gotten some good shots, it still never quite does it justice.

  8. Hey, I got married in Jamaica, too! We did a destination wedding in Runaway Bay last June. It was awesome and the wife and I often talk about how much we'd like to go back... especially for the rum cream, mon!

    Congrats!!
