Hi Rick

Yes, I'm not certain, but I am 99% certain that you are spot on. He's been doing the food stand down on main beach for some years. I'm sure that someone told me that he was opening a restaurant. Good luck to him.

Incidentally, we always call him "Fair Weather Duck". He lives on the hillside immediately above Castara Retreats. He used to help them out with little chores and take guests on boat trips. Anyway, on arrival for our first review stay there, in 2005, Duck was supposed to be there to carry our luggage up the hill. Well, it was raining. No sign of Duck. I had to heave all our luggage up the hillside myself. There was only roadside parking in those days. When the sun came out, shortly after I'd finished, Duck magically appeared and asked if he could be of help. So, I never miss the opportunity to remind him that he is just a "Fair Weather Duck".

Thanks Steve - I thought it was him - I mean how many Ducks are there in Castara . Duck was always friendly to me . I wish him the best - maybe this will get his act together. I hope to visit soon as they let us in from the US . All the best - Rick
