We ate lots of yummy food in Tobago, with lots of seafood (my favourite.) Gordon put his chef hat on and prepared a few fabulous fish dinners for us. We'd go down to the nearest pier and buy fresh fish from a local fisherman. One day we got a beautiful red snapper that Gordon cooked up for us.
A little tomato and cucumber on the side.
There was a very lovely screen dining area at the villa we rented. We highly recommend Marbago Villa if you're heading to Tobago!
Marta and Alan, the owners, kindly left us a bottle of sparkling Yellow Tail, which we enjoyed with two of our suppers.
Snapper with onions and garlic, rice with pigeon peas, cucumber, tomatoes and a slice of lime (that looks like a lemon!)
On another day, we went for lunch at the Boathouse Restaurant in nearby Castara. It has beautiful beachside location. We got a kick of the nectar-sipping Bananaquits who were coveting Gordon's orange juice...
But the poor little birds couldn't reach the OJ at the bottom of the glass, so I helpfully poured a puddle onto the table for them to sip from.
One guy tried sipping from the straw...
...then everyone caught on!
Not a drop left on the table when we left.
Lunch was this calzone-type thing, made with fresh dough and stuffed with shrimp and cheese. Yum-o!
By contrast, today I spent my time wrapping and preparing my beehives for winter. My bee-keeping chores are pretty much done until next spring!
I'm ready for another trip to the Caribbean...
