... sad and in some ways wished I could continue on with them. We headed out for dinner and I had alligator poboy which was kind of like an alligator sausage in a bread roll. Leah, Sharni and I then headed back to the Praline Connection for some sweet potato pie and peach cobbler. The sweet potato pie was not what I expected - not too savoury or sweet and very nice with cream. The next morning rolled around and I got on my plane for Miami, final destination Lima, ...
... to wait for a couple of hours. Loaded with snacks we sat out on the benches taking pics and even managing a quick show session. Also helped that a guy from an earlier boat was a magician from New Orleans and started performing some of his tricks...
