Beach Walks

Tuesday, March 29

Life is so hard here. Took a 90 minute walk along the beach this morning. I really wouldn’t mind doing that every day. It’s still windy, and the high hazard flag was out.

Another walk on the beach. We watched a few people kite surfing. It was a great day for that as the winds continue to be fairly strong. It looks like it requires a great deal of skill and endurance. The kite surfers have little control over where they go so might end a few miles away from where they started.

Mark and I rescued a jellyfish that we saw while walking. We hope it remembers to send us a Christmas card this year.

We did a little shopping, then went to Five Sisters Blues Cafe for dinner. The restaurant pays homage to the owner’s mother and her sisters who loved cooking and good blues afterwards. The cafe features southern cooking, including several versions of bread pudding, which is accompanied by live music four nights a week. Unfortunately, Wednesday is not one of those nights. Ahhh, the food was good though, crab cakes, shrimp, fried green tomatoes for me, a reuben for Mark, and blueberry bread pudding shared by all. Mmm, mmm, mmm.

All good things come to an end, as does another visit to Pensacola and good friends, Steve and Joan. We had breakfast at The Native Cafe, a very popular restaurant. It’s not large, and there were people waiting in line, always a good sign. We didn’t have to wait too long, and I made good use of my time by checking out a nearby gift shop. We were able to take a couple of seats at the counter, and I just ordered plain pancakes which were worth waiting for. We’ll go back, I’m sure.

The weather was pretty radical in the southeast this afternoon, and we flew through some storms on the way back to Minnesota. Fortunately, delays were minimal and we arrived back home a little after midnight.
