Shandy woke up bright and early to wash the house, clean his clothes and generally do the housework before Dale and I awoke! He is so domesticated!! We went to the restaurant next door called the water's edge for a hearty breakfast and watched the local fishermen, about 50 of them, pull in a massive net. After about 40 minutes of tugging on the ropes the net finally came ashore and we walked to see what they had cought. I was expecting the net to be stuffed full of fish and maybe even a little cheer from the fishermen but the catch, in my naive eyes, looked decidedly disappointing! However the fishermen hardly missed a step, a little auction was held and people zoomed off with the few crates off fish.

The rest of the day was very rainy and so we spent most of it indoors but ventured out for a cheap local meal in the evening.
