Heartbreaking what’s happening to Discovery Bay

Published:Tuesday | March 26, 2019 | 12:18 AM


Although I now live a few thousand miles away, I care deeply for Jamaica, land I love. I pre-date ‘Millionaire’s Row’ and have cared for Discovery Bay ever since the days of my youth, when I used to trek through the bush to the eastern point of the bay to the abandoned fortification to see the old cannons strewn about there. I used to dive from the abandoned loading pier, which is now the coast guard property, and fished for small reef fish there.

I grew up with Discovery Bay. It breaks my heart to see this beautiful bay succumb to the thoughtless indifference of a business enterprise whose only focus is the bottom line of their annual profit report.
