Early one October morning, Romnis (Meet Romnis: https://wp.me/p4fUlX-Tt) and I traveled to Santa Cruz del Norte to explore and photograph.
Santa Cruz del Norte is a small fishing village on the North shore of Cuba about 50 km east of Havana. The first view was of the power plant just outside the town.
Our goal was to get into the marina and photograph the old wooden boats, but the guard was not in the mood to grant us access. Perhaps another day. We set out to explore the rest of the town.
This cozy little beach near the mouth of the river was not very inviting.
The trash problem exists everywhere.

Breakfast – Pan con tortilla, jamon, y queso.
People are busy, but as friendly as ever.
This man waved me over to watch the butchering of a pig. I didn’t stay long.
Some of the housing.
A definite Soviet influence.
It was recess when we passed the school.
Along the shoreline ….
I imagine this was a sandy beach before hurricane Irma changed the landscape.
Abandoned discoteca. I suspect another casualty of Irma.
Well, not everyone was busy.
This man was selling his car.
…. and, the ever-present propaganda.
