    certainly not the "grave stone" but maybe a monument for barrett browning as her and her husband are buried in florence, italy.

    So now I know where you got that great shot of Terry and the dolphins. Swimming with dolphins is high on our list of things to do.

    Blue mountains with great coffee, beautiful beaches, colorful boats. I can see why Elizabeth Barrett Browning would choose to rest in peace here. The dolphin experience sounds like something to add to my list of things to do before I die!

    Great bathing with dolphins! Beautiful beaches and coast, excellent off the beaten path tips. Poverty? I can't see any :-) Well, I must ask about personal safety there.

    What a great experience interacting with the animals! Looks like a lovely place. I never knew Elizabeth Barrett Brownings's grave was here!

    This page brought back good memories but I missed Dolphins Cave! But I'm even not sure if this already existed in 1980?? Very beautiful pictures!

    Thanks for the tips. We have been diverted from Negril to here by Beaches so it is an unanticipated trip.
