Day 13 - Corn Island

I woke up in the middle of the night to heavy rain. I was able to go back to sleep and then woke up again at 6:30. The power was out so i took a shower and went for a walk north along the road on the east side of the island. I saw some kids doing exercises on a sports field - I think they were part of a baseball team. After getting back to the hotel the power came back on at about 9am and we had some breakfast at the restaurant. After breakfast I took a walk south to Long Bay which was beautiful but it was windy and the waves were rougher then on the west side of the island. I stopped at the Island Style Bar for a beer - some locals were there playing dominoes.

After walking back to the hotel we took a taxi to Picnic Center for some more time in the sun and water. There were only a handful of people there and got the feeling that there were hardly any tourists on the island. Later we were getting hungry and since the food the day before was a disappointment we took a taxi into town and got some good fried chicken at Fisherman's Cave - $2.50 for two pieces with a small salad and bread washed down with a few Victorias.

Took a taxi back to our hotel - Kat wasn't feeling well and went to go lay down. I walked to the store and got us some gatorade, chips, and cookies. Spent the rest of the night watching tv and went to sleep early
