Investigating the Jackfruit (Yucca)

Cutting into it is so sticky, you need to oil the knife and your hands
Inside it is beautiful

Woops - she forgot to put oil on her hands!

Yucca, ready to eat.  It tastes like bananas, pineapple
strawberries, and peaches, all in one bite.  Yum!

Tortilla Fish, which the locals cook whole including
the bones, for a nice crunchy snack ...

Night fishing with Ella

... and no photo of the first fish that Matero ever speared, but he was excited!

Squid ...

Cutting it to keep the edible parts.

 Shandro demonstrates

Cleaning it.

Beating it - in Greece where squid are eaten often, they throw them on the dock 100 times to soften the meat so it can be eaten.  So that's what we did.

Cooking the squid.

Calamari - Yum!


Diving off Breeze, right in Marina La Cruz

Swimming at the pool ...

Monkeying Around

Swinging on the halyards

Ella and Shandro swinging and loving it!
