After riding our bikes into town for groceries, and paying our friend Robert a quick visit at Royal Palm Villas, we headed home for lunch.  Before we started making our usual sandwiches, Barry got on his laptop and went into Facebook, where he saw that the Lazy Croc had posted a photo of their special -- Smokehouse Shepherd's Pie.  It looked amazing, and only took us a few seconds to make the executive decision to head over there for lunch.  After all, "the Croc" is dangerously close -- almost within smellin' distance, but not quite (thank the gods!)  They were also having sweet potato pie today, one of my favorites, so off we went.  

The Shepherd's Pie was even better than it looked in the photo.  It was so filling that I had to get the sweet potato pie to go; hopefully I'll have more room after dinner.  It was the perfect warming lunch for an overcast, blustery, cool day on Ambergris Caye.  How cold was it?  We're talking low 70s, people!

Hey, I deserve this -- I ran almost 4 miles and rode 9.6 miles this morning! :)

Sammy, aka Cannelo, the stray dog we've been feeding, kind of follows us everywhere.

I hear ya, Rebecca! I am warm as long as I am moving, but the minute I sit still...brrrrr. I was warm for a long time after eating the Shepherd's Pie, though. Even changed from long pants back into shorts afterwards! It's way warmer than North Carolina here this time of year, but I still wouldn't mind if it would warm back up just a pinch. I didn't bring that many cool-weather clothes!
