... who were so picky...(we just know what we like is all).
We finally decided to leave, and eat at "home" where we had pork chops, left over potatoes, green peppers and grilled pineapple for dessert. (Butter and sugar on the pineapple before bbq ing)
The beach in Placencia is great, the place feels like it might have a party atmosphere that is family friendly, but there is little reason for us to return (aside from trying the (reported) best gelato ...

I am not sure how I would describe a conch, maybe like a huge snail, but it has like a hard foot which it uses to move along the ocean floor.

Unfortunately he didn't tell us there is no ATM available in Hopkins, so we will need to go back tomorrow for cash. Many of the businesses here don't take Mastercard so we need to replenish:-) So to anyone who plans to come here... bring MONEY!
We've got a bit of an expensive place tonight ...
