Michael was in need of a road trip—off we went after walking Ms. Emmi around the park—she of course went along. We went to Port O’Connor, a little seaside community with lots of what appeared to be summer homes, Port Lavaca, and Palacios, a shrimping community with old stately homes and businesses.
One of the reasons for going to Palacios was to eat at the Outrigger Bar and Grill—reviewed as a great place to eat in this little tiny town—it was closed, open only Thursday through Saturday!!! Bummer! We ate in a so/so Mexican restaurant and my food haunted me all afternoon!
There were lots and lots of shrimping boats in the Palacios harbor—one was even named, “Grandma.”
Back home we walked Emmi and I stopped in to visit with Mom. Thanks to everyone who left supportive comments about our Federal Express fiasco. I am going to continue to harass with phone calls but as someone said—not worth fighting in the courts for $140!!
Happy Birthday LoraLee—hope it was a good one!
