I had the most wonderful day today.
Beth and I met over on the boardwalk in Kemah where we had lunch just a few months ago and we both ordered the very same things. Beth had cerviche and iced tea, and I had my delicious handmade and shaken Margarita with snapper, shrimp, veggies, rice and all that sort of wonderful stuff for my entree.
Ho, boy! We left there pleasantly full, carrying our doggie bags (for our nonexistent doggies).
The place was really crowded, but we had an excellent waitress. We've decided we'll go again over the Christmas season. I just wish it wasn't such a long ways over there. Close to 50 miles - each way - from my house.
It was great fun watching all the pleasure boats going by and the kiddies, along with some of their parents, feeding the ever-present gulls and even a few crows.
We laughed at a sign across the waterway that said "Leasing" - along with a phone number. We tried to write the phone # down, but couldn't see it clearly enough. What someone is trying to lease is a ramshackle building on stilts (everything's up off the ground in that area) whose walls are falling in. We'd noticed this toppling structure the last time we were there, and could hardly believe it was still standing.
I don't know if this was damage from Ike or not. (That area sustained major damage - really major - when Ike blew through just a little over a year ago. Took them months to rebuild the boardwalk.) I don't get over that way very often. As I said, it's purty doggoned far. Anyway, we thought - just for grins - that one of us would call the # on the sign and act like a prospective customer. You know? Just to see what the response might be. But, it didn't happen. Oh, well!
So, how was your day?
