Hello everyone, I'm at Playa Pesquero, Holguin. The locals and staff just told us that we are in for a big one. This will be the last time I can write until after the storm or when I get home. They have spent all day today removing the boats from the beach and buckling them down with steel. Only one tour operator has evacuted it's clients from Holguin. Since I have been here many times before, we have made wonderful long lasting friendships and they have assured us that we will be OK. There will be high winds and rain, but unless it changes by tomorrow afternoon we will not be evacuated to Havana. Wish us luck and I wish everyone else getting ready for the fierce Ike that is coming their way. God bless!
