A little snorkeling in Cuba

A month ago we were in Cuba celebrating with the Pokorski family.  And of course we had to get in the water and explore all the super interesting life.  We did some snorkeling around the resort and also went out to the reefs on a catamaran trip.  We saw 5 species of sea urchins, 1 sea star, and 2 species of sea cucumber, plus so much more.  What an amazing ocean.

That's awesome! When I was in Cuba, we saw a few Portuguese Man-of-wars washed up on the beach. :S

Fun. we saw a lion fish, but he was pretty happy in his old tire rim anchor spot and not interested in us.
