Hi all

Just a quick update. It's Friday morning, and we've just had breakfast. As ever at this time of the day, the sky is a brilliant blue and the sun warm. The view out over the Carribean was spectacular.

This is our final full day on honeymoon, which is sad. Tomorrow evening we fly back to London, arriving at Gatwick at 10am Sunday morning.

We've had a lovely time since arriving here. Wednesday was largely spent relaxing and swimming in / jumping into the sea (we saw some dolphins as we were having lunch) before heading to the "Sands" - the resort bar, if you like - for sundowners and a spectacular sunset. Dinner was superb.

Yesterday we went on our snorkelling trip (with guide Paul) through some of the caves, which was awesome. There was a bit of diving down to swim under rocks to get into 'secret' caves which was fun. We spent the afternoon relaxing, and then wandered over to a local bar ("Rick's cafe") for cocktails at sunset. It was a lively spot - lots of people, lots of cliff jumping (not from us, we hadn't taken our swimmers) and some good music. The evening was interrupted by a tropical shower, but the band carried on even if the jumpers didn't. The rain thankfully didn't last too long so we didn't get too wet walking back to the Caves.

Last night's dinner was something special. We dined in a Cave (Cave 2, since you ask) which was amazing. The walls of the cave were covered in tealights and the whole set up looked beautiful. It goes down as one of the real highlights of the trip. The food, as ever, was excellent, but the setting was something else entirely. I'll show you the pics when we're back, but I doubt they will do justice to it.

Today I think we might head down into Negril (10 min by taxi) before coming back for some spa action.

Have a great day - happy Friday - we'll see you soon.

Much love
