We had a Cuban lunch at Pepito's on Sunday. The bread basket came with spicy red and green tomatillo sauces, mmm. I had 4 stuffed plantain ends: pulled pork, seafood stew, beef picadillo, and...something else. Vic had a pulled pork sandwich.
Iguana and heron... (He's in the middle, barely below the bush.)
This bird was attracted by someone firing up a grill, and--as you can see--he did not run off when approached.
Victor wants to see pelicans up close. He was saying for hours as we drove down, "There'd better be pelicans." Yesterday (Sunday), a flock of 4 skimmed the canal. I yelled for Victor, but by the time he exited the cottage, they'd rounded the end house and disappeared.
This is an image from Sunday of the hotel where Victor and crew stayed for a national meeting in February 1998. Back then, it was $500 a night.
Right now, a boat could be in trouble...there, in the middle of the photo, isn't that vessel at an odd angle? The tide here is no more than 1'-2' in either direction, and its tilt is greater than such a small variable could cause. :)
