Varadero, Cuba - Friday

Though I was wide awake from 5:30am to 7am, I fell back to sleep and slept in ‘til 9am this morning. 

Once I had breakfast, I headed for the beach for a couple hours.

This was my view for a couple hours!  The water was amazing!

Around 11:30am, I headed for the pool ... and that’s where I found Sister Sarah and some of the group she is traveling with.

Here are Christine and Sister Sarah at the swim-up bar at the pool.

Though this is a five star resort, I haven’t been impressed with the food at the main dining room (it’s a buffet). I had lunch at the pool restaurant and ordered a hamburger and fries ... the burger was really good!

After lunch, I headed back to the pool for a couple hours to relax and catch some rays.

It's Naomi's birthday today and they brought her a cake.

We went to the show ... the theme was Mr Resort.  It was long and lame.

Then we headed to the disco.  They played a mixture of disco, today's pop and Cuban.

 Here are me and Sister Sarah.

 Cheers, Sis!

Aw, so jealous of your vacation. I've only ever been to Mexico, but the boyfriend says the food in Cuba is pretty bad.
