Columbus Cove where Columbus is supposed to have landed on one of his trips to the new world. Can't blame him, there's a nice little restaurant here.
Darin and I trying to buy some of 'Mama's' homemade secret love potient. Locals call it the "liquid Extra-Strength Viagra". Mama owns the Mt. Pellier Domino Club and the resident Pigs. That's the boss hog emblazened on her shirt - Buster.

Same turtle from the other side. That's me in the background taking the previous picture
