Sunset at Jamaica Beach
As I walk through the warm sand down the beach in Montego Bay, Jamaica I find an
beach chair with an umbrella available for me to use to enjoy the scenery of the bright orange
sun bouncing off the edge of the water. After a breathtaking and outstanding day at the beach, I
am satisfied of the beauty of nature and I dread leaving going back to reality.
Sitting there adoring the tranquility, I lay back with my eyes shut listening to the roaring
waves push upon shore. As I lay there thinking, I feel the blustery winds as the blow sand up my
legs. As I tie my hair down to control it from the breeze, the sand once again blows at me,
however this time I taste the mixture of salt and grit. In the distance I hear people talking ,
laughing, and some screams of joy all at once . Everything seems so serene, dismembering all
the worry and stress from my mind.
Once I open my eyes, I see the bright sun across the clear blue sky now reflecting in the
ocean water. There are jet ski’s racing back and forward on the outskirts of the water and there
are large blown up water slides right in the center. With so many different things going on in the
water, it makes me more amazed. Just to the right of me, near the shells and the turtles passing
by, a few people walked along the dock taking cherishing photos leaving them with memories
that will last forever. After watching them do so, I decide to take a video of the surrounding

beauty of the Caribbean for me to show everyone back home the unforgettable experience I
witnessed.
After a few minutes, I became tired of watching every else play in the water, so I stepped
to the edge of the water. It was so clear blue you could see straight through it. When I put the tip
of my foot in, my body instantly cools down. It is revitalizing. As I slowly move in further, the
water rises to my waistline. Moving deeper into the water, I stepped on a piece of coral, located
on the ocean floor along with the translucent seashells. Bending over to get a closer look, the
coral is carved and jagged. The colors are bright combining pink and some sort of orange, with a
rough texture. As I stood in the water a while my body started to shiver once the breeze began to
pick up. I dive under the water using some snorkeling equipment I rented and watch all the small
fish swim by in groups. Time passes on and I decide to go back to lay under the umbrella.
For the rest of the evening I watch the sun go down and set across the ocean. I begin to
feel more relaxed. As my day at the beach comes to an end, I sit and reflect on what an amazing
time I had and when I will be coming back again to visit. I sit in awe thinking of how small my
worries are compared to this exceeding ocean right in front of me. All of my stress is being
washed along shore with the waves, leaving me content with my life. The spirituality of the view
is so meaningful and inspirational. The ocean is the beginning of life on Earth in which lacks
forms. The fact that the ocean extends further than my eyesight is unfathomable.
As I sit here looking over the horizon, the sun has almost set now and only a piece left to
disappear into the ocean, however it was still illuminious. As the sky transition from day to
night, I realize that even at night the sky pretty. The bright stars light up across the water. I began
to make my trek back to the boat and as I slowly walk dreading my arrival back to reality, I
reminisce in the beauty and serenity of it all. I’m well aware I cannot get this everyday but I am

enjoying every aspect of it. As I get back on the boat, I scroll back through my captured
memories and think of how grateful I was to witness God creation of beauty.
