Portland – The Sweet Escape

I had the pleasure of spending my weekend in Portland, Jamaica. Portland for many of you who don’t know is known for its beautiful scenery and fine beaches. The parish lies in the direct path of the northeast trade winds, and the Blue Mountain ridge to its south traps the moisture causing the parish to have the highest rainfall in the island. Basically its Baby-making weather. Portland is also home to the world-famous Blue Lagoon, which is believed to be the crater of an extinct volcano. The lagoon is an almost landlocked cove with approximately 55m (180 ft) of water. If you’re looking for a place to get away and temporary forget about your worries Portland is the place to go. Thanks to Ruth, Joanne and Shauna for a great time.
