More exploring

Today Vic had the day off so we loaded up and headed out.  We checked out some tide pools, had a picnic, went to the Windjammer pool and finished off the day with ice cream at the Caribbean Coffee and Cream.  We can get Starbucks coffee, smoothies, Breyers ice cream and milkshakes there!  Yum! Tonight we plan to join some Jamaican friends for a special worship time that their church is having this week.  I'll try and take some pictures and post about our time tonight.

Enjoy some pics of our day!

Tide pools.  We saw fish, hermit crabs, larger crabs, snails and all sorts of coral.

 A rather larger hermit crab.  I think he will need to find a new shell soon.
 An itty bitty tiny hermit crab.  So cute!
 This picnic pavilion is on top of a hill an overlooks all of Guantanamo Bay.

 We found this telescope to view the bay.
These little island-looking things are moorings for Battleships.  We are allowed to tie up with a boat and check them out.  Hopefully soon we will be able to do that!


  1. Wow it is so beautiful there! Yall are living in paradise! Love seeing the pictures of where you are. I miss you so much but I am so happy that you are happy there! Love you!!

  2. I'm so enjoying all the pictures and stories......

  3. I'm so glad I found your blog! I was in GTMO for seven months as a UXO tech in '08 and absolutely loved it. My husband had some issues with his orders and yesterday we found out his next duty station will be Cuba. His shore duty is suppose to start October 1. We have no other information and what I can find on the web is obviously quite old. Most alarmingly, I read that there is a 6-12 month wait for housing. I am hoping this is not true, he just got back in May from an 8 month deployment and I would prefer not to be separated from him again so soon. You are the only live person currently stationed in GTMO that I have been able to find. Any light you can shed on this subject would be greatly appreciated as we are writhing with uncertainly.
    Thank you so much,
    Misty Dawn
