After walking around and noting that EVERY store was closed, we checked out a candy shop. While this wouldn't normally be something worth mentioning, I had my first Kinder sorpresa! It's a hollow chocolate egg with a toy inside! Sounds safe for kids right? Anyway, it was excellent!

After scoping out the town, we wanted nothing more but to go to the beach and get ...
