After many weeks of hard work hiring a new Superintendent and finalizing the 3 year school calendar it was great to go and spend a week in Cuba at Cayo Santa Maria at the Memories Azul resort. Warm (28-33 degrees) during the day, beautiful sandy beaches, crystal clear water and some really good snorkeling (we saw an octopus, 6 squid, and lots of fish and some interesting coral) and lots of relaxation adds us to a good re-charge for a tired mind, body and spirit. One week full of long uninterrupted visits with life-long friends Garth Harrison and Pam Hanna was a gift to savour. There were dance and music shows every night and the best was a flamingo dance by the National Ballet of Cuba accompanied by amazing musicians playing wild complex rhythms. I needed to check-out and check-in and this holiday gave me that and more!
