On Friday afternoon we went to Oistins for the famous fishfry. Here are some cool shots from the Oistins market.
Oistins is a fishing town where you can watch fishmongers cleaning the fresh catches of the day for purchase.
Nothing is hidden. Everything is out in the open, like this lovely bin of fishheads on ice.
Everyone can get in on the action. These cranes are picking at the nasty leftover fish scraps in the trash heap.
While we still had some time to kill before the fishfry, we wandered into a boatyard with beautiful wooden points in various stages of repair. This trip to the boatyard was my second favorite adventure on the island.
And of course the fishfry itself was really great. The location consists of 20-30 small shacks, all competing for your business. Here is the guy who won our hearts. He was friendly without being pushy, complimented Jon on his wife's smile and looked like he really knew what he was doing at the grill. We shared a plate of grilled red snapper and then a plate of grilled marlin. Both platters were delicious. I didn't catch his name but if you ever find yourself at the fishfry in Oistins, be sure to stop at Pat's Place.
