A little break …

600_5345-e_w… on the beach. A lazy afternoon in the sun.

When in the Caribbean you have to go to the beach. In this time of the year, the beaches aren’t crowded. That’s because the locals don’t go to the beach during “winter”. Winter in the Caribbean? Are you kidding? No, I’m not. Although it was quite hot for me in February and March, the Cubans are used to much higher temperatures. So, they don’t go to the beach in this time of the year. But, they don’t call this time “winter”. It’s the dry season.

These photos are taken at the Trinidad beach. You can also find some hotels here, at the beach.

A few food dealers were walking around, trying to sell pastries, coconuts or drinks basing on rum (remember, we’re in Cuba). As I mentioned earlier, these people were not pushy. They were coming up slowly after a while for offering their products. After rejecting their offer politely, they always went back and left us alone.

Enjoy!

  1. Beautiful photos as always. Many people here go to the sea less this time of year. That is fine with me, more for myself! πŸ™‚

    1. I know. Here, too. Only those, who want to get their mind free and want to be alone, go to the sea in this time of the year. But, I tried to stress the wired feeling of being in a hot country with beautiful beaches and (in my opinion) beach weather and hearing the locals say: no. It’s no beach weather. It’s too cold. Very wired.
