Cuba

Warning - very picture heavy!

What can I say about Cuba other than we had a perfect time! Beautiful country, beautiful weather, beautiful people = wonderful vacation. Although we seemed to spend most of our time at the poolside, we did get for a wonderful hour-long walk each morning along the ocean, spent a lot of time in the various restaurants, bars and buffet, and we did get in to Havana for a day trip. I wish I could go back tomorrow!

I'll let the pictures do the rest of the talking...The main building
Poolside~
View of the first pool
The hottub...come of my favourite spots!
Ahhh, the ocean!

The next hotel had a lighthouse!
Havana~
...with such cool cars from the 50's.

That really does look like a beautiful place! We could never consider going there, or Lucy would have some serious 'splainin' to do trying to get back home!

Hi Wendy, your photo's of Cuba are wonderful. What a beautiful country. Some photos remind me of places that I have been in Spain. A place that is also beautiful. Did you buy anything nice. - Sandra.
