And I was doubly rewarded. The sun got through the clouds promising yet another glorious sunset. The beach was almost deserted, but there was a solitaty fisherman. He just caught a fish when I approached him and was reeling it in, so I stopped to watch. A red snapper!
'Nice catch' I said.
The fisherman smiled. 'Do you like fish?' he asked.
'Very much so' I smiled back.
'Wait a moment, then' he said 'and I shall clean this fish for you'!
And so he did. Just like that.
Ah, the kindness of Puertoricans!
We chatted while he cleaned the fish and he told me where to find the mussles, whose colorfull shells I found on the beach. They are apparently every bit as tasty as the black ones. I am looking forward to swimming with a mussles bag next time I go for a swim.
And then may be I really catch my next dinner myself.
