Cuba - final installment

It's a dreary, rainy day here today - they're even talking of slushy snow on the radio - so how about a final round of Cuba photos to warm the place up?

We went on an excursion to the local towns of Ciego de Avila & Moron.  On these types of trips I'm always obsessed with taking pictures of the buildings.  I just love the detail, the colours, the smooth walls.  It's so different than anything we have here in Canada.





And yes they are sometimes dingy & in need of repair, but that doesn't take away from the beauty.

I also couldn't stop taking pictures of these trees. I know now that they're called Royal Palm, but I just called them the "fatty trees". (I mean like, "my dog is a fatty", not like "let's go smoke a fatty". What kind of blog do you think this is?)  



Though the sharp teeth were kind of scary (may not be a royal palm here).


And the flowers, oh the flowers!






Don't these look like radishes?



I'll leave you with my little anole friend.  He was showing off by the pool one day.  


Or maybe he was warning me away from his deck chair.
