Day 4 in Paradise

Can you get any more relaxed here? It didn't take long, that's for sure. Still having those blue skies and aquamarine waters....


Well, reality hits hard. Paradise doesn't last. This is the same view as a storm blew through. Bye bye aquamarine surf. Fortunately, these storms don't last either.

We dined with Carole's cousins last light in a wonderful Peruvian restaurant, the Ceviche House. Peruvian always means "ceviche" and if you like seafood and never tried ceviche, you are in for a treat. It's a shock the first time because fresh but raw fish, mussels, shrimp, conch, and other ocean delights are marinated in citrus juices such as lemon or lime and spiced with chili peppers. Additional seasonings such as onion, salt, and pepper may also be added. The raw ingredients cook as a result of the citric acid in the lemon or lime juice.

This was followed by what was the best paella that I ever had. A gigantic portion, enough for more than two, came in the one entree which we shared.
So today, more beach time, a 45 minute run on the beach, and bloody marys at 6pm.

Here's the scene from near our beach condo yesterday around sunset:
