The day was warm, and downtown was lovely.
We did some shopping, and then grabbed some more cash.
We went wondering down the boardwalk, until we found what Karl had been hoping to find:
We waited as Karl spoke with the woman preparing the meat on sticks.
Marlin and Shrimp.
Karl’s review: He liked the flavor on the shrimp, but he hated that they weren’t skinned.
He LOVED the Marlin. He said, “It may not have actually been marlin, but whatever it was, it was TOTALLY his jam.
The kids got big ice pops from a street vendor for what amounted to about 10 cents each. I went and got this thing, which Lucas HAD to try it and even though I warned him it was spicy, he tried it. It was too spicy.
The kids were getting tired, and we were having trouble finding a place to eat. So Karl ran ahead while we rested in the shade. We found a burger king that sold chicken nuggets so we grabbed some while we waited for him to reappear.
He found a place that served food on the second floor terrace.
Looking tired, still working on those nuggets, waiting for our food.
Our charming view looked over a square in the Old Town.
Lucas was going nuts, and was very transfixed on the traffic as it went by.
I ordered nachos, that were perfect.
After food, we got more snacks, if you can believe it, got a cab, and headed back to the ship. One thing we found while there that day is this:
I want to drink it every day.
I was mushed in the back seat again with these babies.
We got back on the ship, and got straight to work cleaning sand and sunscream and dirt of the day off of the kids.
We dropped the kids off at Camp Ocean dinner and went and got some food in the dinning room.
Who can remember dinner? It was all about dessert.
After dinner, back to the room, and our new towel buddy.
