|Entering Soper's Hole|
Today we did some grocery shopping at a small store in Cane Garden Bay picking up the usual necessities as well as cassava, sweet potatoes, yams, and tiny delicious (and fresh tasting!) bananas native to the islands. After some quick washing at the local laundromat we moved on to Soper's Hole on the west end of Tortola. A busier harbour, there are frequent ferries from other islands and lots of cruising boats mingling among the multitudes of charter boats. There are a few nice pastel-coloured shops along the waterfront where we picked up a few small things including a Caribbean cookbook. Hopefully we can try out some new recipes in the coming weeks. But first we'll have to visit the spice shop here because after glimpsing a few recipes in the book Mom has deemed our spice stores sorely inadequate for concocting proper Caribbean cuisine.
Hope you've enjoyed,
