Shine Makes A Living From Conch at Silver Sands  Villas Jamaica
Sunshine, also known as Shine, only fishes for conchs and shells these days. There was a time, some twenty to twenty five years ago, he’s not sure exactly when, that he did spearfishing for a living. That was before that horrible day deep in the sea off Discovery Bay when a tiger shark wanted the big fish he had shot, and felt that it would be best to get rid of the competition by sinking its teeth into Shine’s right thigh, an injury that required twenty-five stitches to make his leg whole again.  More:

Endless Summer - Endless Pleasure, Silver Sands Jamaica, May 2011

Or, am I just incredibly lucky to have ended up spending a few days here?  More:

Why Jamaicans Suck Oranges
More affluent Jamaicans will juice oranges into a jug, store in their fridge, and consume it just as people in developed countries do with store-bought cartons of orange juice. But ordinary Jamaicans don’t do that - they suck oranges! And to suck an orange, you have to peel it with a sharp knife to remove the bitter tasting rind.

History of Silver Sands Jamaica
What is now known as Silver Sands was originally a port for the shipping of sugar and rum from what was then called Derby Wharf. The Jetty was built to accommodate the schooners that came from England for the produce, and was the main reason for the formation of the beach which, of course, was called Derby Beach.
