After breakfast we took a taxi into town and walked along the promenade enjoying the sun and the water features.

We leave the carnival to go in search of lunch in the famous fish market. The gates are very appropriate, inside we find the place is huge. Every sort of fish, fresh that morning.

We find the famed upstairs seafood restaurant, menus as placemats. Bear had fried whole fish, very crispy and I was brave and had fillet and chips.
