Outdoor Wednesday: a Cuban Iguana

Photo by Tere Cornelio "A GiTMO Iguana"

I have been away from my blog(s) and all the fun networking we do around here far too long. I miss all of this and all the sharing. So I come back now with my first outdoor picture in a while during this, the last Wednesday of the year.

I could have chosen one of the many beach, rocks, seaglass, mountains, or cloud pictures but I kept coming back to this Iguana because I'm still in awe that they live or that we live among them. They do keep to themselves and in my neighborhood we don't see them often but we do see them at the beach (only if we break out the food) and we see them around the base and in other housing areas. We see them as often as people in the states see dogs and their masters walking around...really weird.

I hope to find the time of day when my internet connectivity is has a higher bandwidth than during the day time hours (maybe I need to go back to my early morning blogging) so that I can visit all others in my network and hopefully meet some new people (bloggers).

Please visit Susan at A Southern Daydreamer to see what other outdoors people are sharing today.

Visit my Life in Guantanamo Bay blog to read about our adventures and our everyday life here in GTMO, Cuba.

Have a beautiful day everyone and thanks for visiting!



  1. We have a town about an hour south of me here in Florida where iguanas are all over the place, even more than dogs! It is so strange to see, but I think they are fascinating.

  2. Wow, that looks like a BIG iguana. Great photo.

    All the best to you in 2010. Happy New years.

  3. A little scary but pretty!

    My entry, wishing you and your family a fruitful new year!

  4. Oh My Goodness! I'm not exactly sure what I would do if I stumbled upon one of those guys!! How interesting to live in Cuba! I look forward to seeing more of your posts! All the best for 2010! Happy New Year! Sherri : )

  5. Can't wait to visit and collect some sea glass. It is really hard to find in Delaware.
