Stopped here on the way back to Mo Bay from Dunns River Falls for a bite to eat. Great Jerk Chicken and Jerk Pork. Beautiful views from the restaurant and great photo opportunities.

This is on of the most beautiful view points, along with all the rich history behind it. If only the Taino Indians had stopped Columbus in the bay......
