Today we returned to the Popotla Fishing Village to collect some shells and purchase some fresh fish for lunch. It is a fascinating place. Many fishing families offer fresh fish for sale; some is on tables, some still in the boats, and in one case a we saw a pile of fish on a pile of ice in the back of a very much used van. We purchased a half-kilo of shrimp for $6 and a small cod (that the fisherman cleaned for us) for $1. On the way home we stopped by our favorite small Mexican restaurant to purchase a cup of re fried beans, 4 fresh flour tortillas and 2 home made flan desserts for $8 more . We went home and I made garlic shrimp and grilled fish for lunch. And there was still shrimp left over for 2 more meals. Yum, yum! We have mainly eaten fish during the month and a half that we have been here. It is fresh, inexpensive and plentiful.
While we were there we saw two healthy and grown up sea lions. They were waiting for the leftovers from the fishermen. Here are a couple of pictures of him Here are some pelicans also waiting for some tasty handouts.
