Photographer's Note

Second in the series on Jamaica's fragile southeast coast. On this day the weather was partly overcast and somewhat windy but by no means stormy. Nevertheless, the photo shows the strength of the waves -- breaking onto the main road near the bus -- and at least a suggestion of the state of the road.

Because I haven't yet figured out how to make a hyperlink to a previous post (please help!), I am repeating the underlying message of these related images(2009-06-26): "... this coast retains the open views and natural character that used to be found in most parts of Jamaica. The brown/grey sandy and stony beaches, the difficult road access and the particular vulnerability of this corner of the island to storms and hurricanes have all restricted conventional tourist development. Hopefully, this has bought time for the area to benefit from the more sustainable value of alternative forms of tourism."
