JRB, End of June/Early July 2013

99 more Sleeps!

My wife and I will be returning (home) for our 3rd time, to Jewel Runaway Bay (8th time on this property). June 24th through July 5th. Celebrating our 15 year wedding anniversary on the 28th.

Last year and also this past January, we were once again very lucky to meet so many nice people who posted to my countdown thread (and many more that didn't) and were there the same time. Can't wait to see who we bump into this year.

Can't wait to see you all and all of the new friends we'll meet this year. I know many of our "yearly" crew may have made other choices this year, but we just couldn't bring ourselves to go anywhere but back home! The hugs and smiling faces that greet you when you arrive, make you know you are home again.

If any one has any resort questions feel free to contact me. I know there were already many improvements we found during our short stay in January. I'm sure there will be many more. Looking forward to the NEW Pizza Place.

So, Who's going to be there, End of June/Early July. Let the count down begin!!!!!

See you all in June.

We are thinking of going to JRB in June, trying to decide between this property and maybe Beaches at Negril. Going with sons 18 and 14, any advice?

Besides the price (Jewel should be coming up lower), the one thing I could tell you with 14 & 18 yo sons......... Laser Tag!!!!! At Jewel! They have a great new Laser tag area set up complete with a big ole school bus for hiding in, on, and around.

The beach at Jewel is second to Negril unless you all like to snorkel. Then IMO Jewels beach beat Negril hands down with the reef only feet off the shore.

Hope to see you there!

Drew - anniversay is on the 20th - we are also celebrating my 50th birthday (early since it's actually in August), we are bringing our youngest niece for her high school graduation, and one of the other newbie couples that is coming along will be celebrating her 30th birthday so LOTS of celebrating to be done that week!!! Do you know the cost of the laser tag - thought the guys might like to do that!
