Cayo Santa Maria Cuba

Well we were off for an exciting week in Cuba.  We decided to try somewhere different and ended up in the island of Cayo Santa Maria.  A beautiful little place joined to the mainland by a 50K causeway that took the Cuban government 10 years to make.

I managed to bring my triathlon stuff and make a go of it.

I did a couple of swims in the pool, while try-girl managed to hit the beautiful azure waters of the Caribbean.

Tri-Girl heads off to the point in the crystal clear water.  I was so jealous as the weather never was this calm again and because of that I ended up in the pool.

Tri-guy and Tri-boy do laps in the pool.

Back and forth the two of them went.  I must admit to being just a little proud of his swimming.  We did a few laps easy and then I gave him a 10 second head start and we did a sprint set.  I never won one, but I didn't care, he was in the pool with daddy.

I did manage to run as well, if you click view details, you will see that I actually had points in my run below sea level.... cool, no?

I noticed that the Bing map does not work well here, so hit the drop down menu  next to the +/_ signs and switch to Google maps (much better)

In the end it was supposed to be a break and in that break, I took some time to deeply contemplate life and the sport of triathlon...
