Scenes from Cuba

First stop on our trip was ringing in the new year with Mike's family on a resort in Cuba. This was Mike and I's second trip to Cuba, our first trip we were a bit more adventurous. We went and saw Havana (amazing) and toured a few islands, but this trip was a bit more low-key and relaxing. The kind of slow, easy days where the biggest decision of the day was beach or pool? or what board game are we going to play tonight?
Rough life, I know.

I was actually so relaxed that I uncharacteristically took very few photos, just soaked it all up and enjoyed the moment. Here are a few scenes and views from the comfort of my lounge chair:

Oh! and amidst all the relaxing and drinking, there was a shark that swam to join our party! yes, a shark!

  4. haha, I know. It wasn't a huge shark and I'm okay when you can see the bottom of the ocean. Though, come to think of it, it was the day before we left and I DIDN'T go in the water after that! Surprisingly, everyone was pretty calm.

  5. Must say - I'm very jealous. Really needing a little sunshine and warm weather right now. And I'm like you, despite being a very strong swimmer, I will not go where I can't see or feel the bottom.
