Trelawny Parish Church of St. Peter the Apostle

Q: When does a two hour car ride turn into a three hour car ride?

A: When you driver stops four times for the "sights and smells"

 

This is Trelawny Parish Church of St. Peter the Apostle which is part of the Diocese of Jamaica and the Cayman islands. My group got out and briefly explored the interior and the grounds.

 

The interesting thing about the church is that it was constructed using the ballast stones from ships coming to collect sugar cane and other Jamaican goods. Good idea!

 

Also, there was a "groundskeeper" who wanted to give us a "tour". While that's all nice and good, we decided to do our own thing and when we started to leave he still wanted some cashola. I told him we wouldn't pay him anything but part of me wishes that I had pointed out that the grounds didn't look very "kept" anyway.
