Jamaica, yea mon

We're back home in Iqaluit after a 2 week holiday that included a stop in Toronto to see family and some R&R in Jamaica. We had a great time snorkelling, swimming in the ocean and lounging around the pool. Dr. H. kept us well sunscreened so there weren't any burns. The trip was fun and relaxing and we are returning to Iqaluit re-energized.

In our absence the new hospital here in Iqaluit has been opened and is now up and running! It should be fun to work in a totally new building, and we will try to get some pictures up of our nice new workplace.

Here are some pictures we took in Jamaica....ahhh, I almost feel the ocean breeze.

The main arcade at our resort.


Some flowers around the resort.




This fellow was part of the entertainment crew one night and entertained with some fire breathing!


A couple of pictures of us enjoying our vacation.




In other news I am going to modify the format of the blog a bit to try to increase my posting frequency. Thoughtful posts can take time to produce and when work gets very busy the blog seems to get pushed to the back burner. I'm going to try also including some shorter posts with article links, book reviews or interesting facts pertaining to arctic life or health care, in between longer posts. We'll see how it goes, and feedback is always appreciated!

Looks like a great holiday. Welcome back - I do enjoy all your posts and understand the difficulties keeping the more thoughtful posts going. It is good to get these thoughtful posts, but it is also nice to see fairly regular updates, so I would go with the insertion of quick updates in between.

Great pic of you two. We visited Jamaica in 66 and stayed at Ocho Rios - Golden Head Beach Resort. Very new at the time - I'd love to go back.

Jamaica looks so warm and pastel and fun. I'm glad you had a great time! :)

We met at the Golden Head resort in 1966 and returned to Golden Head in 1968 as a married couple. Fabulous time - Jamaica will never be the same.
