Arawak Cay (Fish Fry)
Friday - day 2 (continued)
Leaving Ardastra we walked a half mile to Arawak Cay, better known as the Fish Fry. It is a cluster of informal restaurants and bars, many with barkers out front urging passersby to come in. The man at the first one we passed said he had something for us to see and we walked through to the back where fresh conch was being cleaned for salads and other dishes. The beach was littered with thousands of conch shells.
After taking pictures, we went on down the row, looking for a place for lunch. We recognized the name Twin Brothers from previous research and a recommendation from a taxi driver, so we stopped there and tried both the fried and the grilled snapper. The portions were rather skimpy, but that didn't matter too much since I thought the food was only so-so.
We took a taxi back to the hotel and changed for the pool. The sun was getting low and it was pretty windy and cooler. We still spent a while on the beach, then moved next to the pool where it was more sheltered. The water in the ocean and in the pool was too cold to really enjoy.
