Now that we have our beach bikes (yay!), we can haul a lot more groceries, meaning that we can start really stocking up on things rather than only buying what we can carry on our backs. Still, our cargo capacity is not unlimited, especially when we buy large items like papayas or pineapples, so today required two separate bike rides to town, one in the morning, and one in the afternoon.
In the morning we hit Maria's fruit stand, Super Buy South, and Popular Tortillas; and this afternoon we went to Castillo's hardware, Mash (groceries), Super Buy (more groceries), and Caye Supplies. It had rained over an inch overnight, so in certain places the road was full of large puddles to dodge. We are very fortunate to have fenders on our bicycles as the bikes we rented on previous trips did not, and we'd invariably be splashed with sandy colored mud after riding if it had rained recently.

Look closely to see a typical puddle after storms here. A lot of weaving is required to miss them!
