Banana trees, ocean breezes, cloud forests thick with ferns. Jamaica is a jewel of an island. Traveling with a good friend, we spent our days navigating from town to town, painting, and looking for endemic birds. There are 28 bird species that only exist on the island, and we saw 22 of them! Loved this experience and the opportunity to slow down enough to really see and feel the rich greens of a Blue Mountain hillside in the morning misty light.
