Photographer's Note

This is a lagoon, in a rearing crocodiles farm, in the city of Morón (pictures of crocodiles coming soon ;-).

~~~~~x~~~~~~

We stayed in the Gardens of the King (Jardines del Rey) in a small island in Northern Cuba.

The name of the island is Cayo Coco.
'Cayo' (cay) refers to each of the sandy, shallow islands, often largely covered by mangrove, very common in the Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico. They are small, low-elevation, sandy islands formed on the surface of coral reefs.

'Coco' is not because of coconut. It is because of a bird called Coco by Cubans. It is a White Ibis.
