Chasing Storms...Part 9

I ordered eggs over easy with bacon. It's one of the few times I have ever ordered eggs that way and have had them cooked the way they are supposed to be. I thought the price of $70 pesos a little high. I guess I am having a hard time adjusting to the prices going up.
After breakfast we checked out of the hotel and went to the Mercado. We had plenty of time to kill before getting to the car ferry. Today is Sunday and only two go to Cozumel. One in the morning and one at 6:00pm. No hurry to get anywhere.
Dave bought a few items but there was nothing that I needed. We headed out towards the Coba road. Stopped for beer and ice before visiting Trudy at her place. She didn't know we were coming and had had a bad cold for a few days so we only stayed a little while before going to Tulum. We stopped at Camello's for something to eat. It was packed as usual.
I had my shrimp cocktail. The new price is $100 pesos. I had plenty of shrimp but the sauce left something to be desired. Mine are better. I'll go to Los Pepe's next time.
Still having time to spare, we headed towards the beach. There is a new Chredaui's before the fire station on the Boca Paila road. I didn't stop in but it looked like a nice store.
We hung around the beach for a while. The surf was up a little but is was a beautiful day.
We made it to Calica with plenty of time to spare. It was a short but good vacation from island life.

I've tried to order eggs over easy EVERY TIME I'M in Coz and never have had them done properly. What's the secret? I can order fried eggs: Quiero que mis huevos fritos .... over easy? volteados? I susally wind up with heavily fried sunny side up eggs... I'll usually just eat what I get
Love the pics!

My wife speaks Spanish and likes her eggs over easy. She thinks you should try "Huevos voltiados tiernos". Not a direct translations, but tiernos is supposed to mean "tenderly". No guarantees! I just get them scrambled-and of course, I can barely order in Spanish anyway.

Thanks for keeping up with the awesome pics and stories. Got a question for you. How do you make your own shrimp coctails? I've had a couple good ones on Cozumel, but lookng for recipes...
