|Lobster Fest @ Caye Caulker|
Here, all of the local restaurants cook the lobster that came in off the boat that morning to celebrate. The weekend is full great food, great drinks, and a lot of music and dancing. My first stop was a local street vendor that was selling Lobster Kebabs. The woman in the back was preparing the kebabs and the gentleman out front was grilling them up with a simple butter sauce and some fresh pineapple. I think I paid two dollars US for mine...

I passed another little stand that had just put a fresh crop of lobster on the grill. They also had just made a fresh batch of lobster fritters. I order one of their lobster quesadillas with a lobster fritter on the side. I paid about 15 USD for a quesadilla packed to the brim with fresh chunks of lobster, the fritter and another Belikin. I ate them too quickly to get a photo, but I did get a photo of the grill and the little storefront the guy owns with his wife and their child.
