The Bay of Pigs, Cuba

Even on a family holiday I can't resist the odd detour to visit a battlefield or two. In Cuba this stretched to the Museum of the Revolution in Havana, the naval base in Cienfuegos and the Bay of Pigs. These photographs were taken about six weeks ago. The Bay of Pigs is now a tranquil place frequented by Cubans taking their obligatory two week annual holiday and divers keen to dive on the wrecks which still litter the ocean floor.
