      ... there was a stiff breeze blowing and the sea looked rough. Swimming was allowed in strictly designated areas, controlled by lifeguards. There were plenty of sunbathers on the beach but not many in the water. With the outline of the city's high rise buildings on the horizon behind us we had a very pleasant walk along the seafront, following the winding paved path built after the damaging storms of 2007.

      ... they were selling the shrimps but weren't carrying them but had a secret stash of them!!! What was the score with these shrimps!! They were no bigger than your index finger but everyone was selling them on the sly.
