Started off with a big cup of my favorite drink, Pippa coco nut juice. Next we did a walk around town to see if our old friends from boating in Powell River were home, they were not. Spend the rest of the day at the beach and they we went for our first high end dinner. Yup time to flex with the bucks. There are three very good rest in town and Los Caracoles is one of them. I had the coco nut prawns and Rox got the Mahi Mahi Florentine. It was high end dinning service and on the way our we were presented with a soft chocolate each by a fellow at the exit that had a box full and passed then out to us with steel tongs. Nice. The food was great and my Coco nut shrimp was 130 pesos or 10.66 cnd. Even better. We usually pay about 45 to 80 pesos for food. Now comes the fun part! Last night we were waken by the gun shots and blasts, but its not guns its fire works and some kind of bombs they let off to celebrate St. Patrick's day here in Melaque. The noise and bombs go all night and fire works in the town square are every day as this is a 10 day event!! Its a lot of fun so we will just have to go with it.... Brad.
