Today we rode into San Pedro a bit later than usual so we could eat lunch in town. I'd been craving ceviche, since I hadn't had any since arriving here in late August, so Lily's sounded like the perfect place to enjoy the breezes on the beach and get my fix.
Before lunch we rode to Maria's fruit stand, where we seem to end up nearly every day. The family that runs this place is so incredibly sweet and generous to us, nearly always giving us a few little extras since we shop there so frequently. During the slow season, I am sure they are happy for every customer. Yesterday our bonus was two glasses of incredibly fresh squeezed orange juice, and today Maria threw in an onion, a stalk of celery, and a few green onions in addition to the vegetables and fruit we purchased. While we were packing up our goodies, Jose came out to show us his turtle. Such a cute little thing, and Jose obviously adores him.

Our next stop was Lily's Treasure Chest for lunch. Barry got his egg fix by ordering the breakfast burrito, which was actually two burritos with a nice side of fresh salsa, and I got the fresh fish ceviche. It was a huge serving and so deliciously fresh and caliente y picante to the tongue! I wasn't able to finish the entire plate but did eat all the fish and as many of the vegetables as I could. Many of the folks who have reviewed Lily's on TripAdvisor.com have said that this is the best ceviche on the island, and it certainly coud be. YUM!
A fantastic setting for a meal
That's what I'm talking about!
Our bikes parked along the fence - convenient!
