Goldilocks walked us around town a bit and then to the Roti Queen's house for lunch. Marci was having trouble with her cooking gas but Goldilocks helped her and so it was decided that we would come back at noon (30 mins later) for Roti's.

We stopped a couple of different times to read the local postings. One was about people running for office. One guy in particular was against certain people running and so had files a grievance saying so. We were also able to peruse the local voter registry for the island of Barbuda as it was handing up outside the bar and post office. It listed everyone, gave their voter reg number and told what they did for a living. Another posting asked the people please get their horses off the cricket field! So interesting.
We stopped in a local grocery store on the way back to the dock. It was small but nice. Mike bought a loaf of bread. I thought the veggies that they had looked good - tomatoes, potatoes, onions, garlic, lettuce and I think carrots. Goldilocks said they have two other grocery stores.
The town dock primarily has small fishing skiffs that are used to fish the lagoon, get lobster, and take tourist across the lagoon. The entrance to the lagoon is only big enough for small skiffs. However off to one side of the town docks, near some mangroves, there is a huge, red sea buoy. I asked Goldilocks about this. He said some of the locals found it floating close to shore. It's a sea buoy from Nova Scotia- blown WAY off course. They drug it back into the lagoon and now it's used during hurricane season to sound storm warnings. I think it's primarily a big prize for the village....."look what we found!" It was just funny to see if sitting there.
