Shortly after 7:00 the photography crew is back on the beach and they are shooting swim suits and sports wear. The bathing suits are still very JC Penny looking. I thought they were using a vacuum cleaner for a prop at one point, but it turned out to be a small beach chair turned sideways to my view. The photographers are the prima donnas, they have people scurrying to get fresh cameras, adjust lighting, pose the model, touch up makeup, and other things I can not understand. It sounded like they are speaking German. We saw them again when we were on the beach, and they were speaking English with some accent.
We stayed in the sun for several hours today. Miss Judy missed several spots with her sun screen and now has her Jamaican sunburn. Usually I am the one that burns, but I went to the tanning salon several times before we left on our trip. It started raining about 4:00, so we came back to our room. We did a quick shower and nap so that we could prepare for dinner.
Dinner was a private affair on the beach. We had a table near the water surrounded by tiki torches. There was a private walkway lined with candles and flowers in the sand. It was a five course dinner with steak, seafood, and all the trimmings. Our private waitress was named Tamica, and she said that she was singing in the Couple talent show tonight. The food and the atmosphere were great.
The talent show had performers from all parts of the Couples staff, as well as several guests. Our friend Skippy performed as Whitney Huston and we did not know it was him until he pulled of his wig at the end of his act. Tamica sang, and she was by far the best singer. The audience called her back for an encore.
Another beautiful day in Jamaica!!!!!
