PHOTOS: Sun, sea and food at Fort Clarence Beach for Easter
For Jamaicans, most of whom are Christians, there is always the tradition of going to church on the revered day during the holy holiday seasons, and then enjoying the rest of the day by doing whatever tickles their fancy.
One such activity is taking a trip to the beach, most times for a family day out.
In the Corporate Area, the preferred beach destinations are usually Hellshire and Fort Clarence in St Catherine, with seafood servings from the variety of restaurants at both venues, keeping the revellers full throughout the day.
Loop News visited Fort Clarence on Easter Sunday and, as expected, the beach was full of activities, with families making the journey to socialize, while getting their customary “wash off” in the blue Caribbean Sea.
From the babies to the grandparents, all members of family units were at the beach. Mothers and fathers pampered children and feted with the seafood from the kitchen at the venue.
The kids meanwhile used the opportunity to frolic with old friends and make new friends with sand as their stomping ground as they played and enjoyed the time away from the books.
For some adults, it was just a day to relax away from home, as they spent most of their time under the shade of a tree, catching up on their reading or just getting some sleep.
In the end, it was just a pleasant day for fun-filled activities at the beach.
