Monday in Galveston . . .

Today we went to lunch at the Tortuga, a sprawling Mexican restaurant, right on Seawall Boulevard, just about a block from our tiny condo. 

Someone else cooked! A delicious avocado stuffed with shrimp, fish, broiled vegetables with three kinds of salsa met our appetite delightfully. Even at 1pm, we hit happy hour! A nice draft beer with lime for 99c topped the meal. The music in the background? Cajun style to mark that blend of Spanish and French culture reflected also in the Mardi Gras parades this past weekend and next.

After a brief trip to Kroger's for supplies (carried home in a daypack), we lounged by the pool for a while and then upstairs home again, a quiet day in what seems a little like paradise.

Today's temperature 79 degrees
For inquiring minds, yes, the writing is coming along just fine, the temperature today really was close to 79, and we wish you all could be here!
