Did you miss me? We took a family trip over March Break to Cuba and it was just wonderful!
How could it not be? Look at the view from our resort room on the first day! Ahh sun and fun. Just what we needed to escape the winter cold for a bit. We stayed in Varadero Cuba - at a different resort than I stayed in last year.
I thought that I might share a few pictures from our trip.
We went on a few excursions to see more of Cuba. We went snorkeling twice including once in the Caribbean Sea in that blue blue water. The fish were absolutely amazing and would just follow you around. We also did the swim with the dolphins excursion that I did last year. Wonderful once again.
We went on a few boat rides as well on the different excursions - this one was a nice gentle ride up a river and back again while listening to live Cuban music - it was so nice and relaxing!
Great trip and great people!
On one of the excursions we went to a farm that had an example of a Cuban farm house on it and look what I found in the bedroom!
Here's a close-up. It is completely sewn and quilted by machine.
Maybe by this machine?! Although this machine is missing it's belt right now LOL!
And maybe pressed with one of these irons? Although probably neither one of my thoughts is correct - it's fun to think that maybe it is.
I saw one other quilt in Cuba hanging from the balcony of an apartment building to dry. I tried to snap a shot of it but the bus that we were on moved by it too quickly for me to get my camera out and grab a shot of it :-( It was a string quilt much like the ones that Bonnie Hunter loves and I was thrilled to see it! I tried to grab a picture honest!
It's behind the palm trees on the right - sigh. Oh well!
All in all it was a great trip and I would go back to Cuba again. The people are so wonderful and it is so safe and relaxing. Next time I think I might try Holguin instead of Varadero.
