LOCATION: South Padre Island
WEATHER: Mostly sunny. High 67
I taught a Basic Beginner line-dancing session. Some of the students are starting to “get it”. Others, not so much…. Then, the more experienced dancers arrived, and we danced another 2 hours. Great exercise – for the brain and body, too.
Then, we picked up our friend Pat who flew down from Minneapolis for a week. She left -24 temps and arrived in Harlingen Airport enjoying 67 and sunshine. She flew Sun Country which has inexpensive, direct flights here in the winter. It was funny to see all the passengers disembark with their parkas, gloves, and hats.
We drove over to South Padre Island where we will stay one night. Our first stop was the Marriott which has a really nice outdoor bar/restaurant. We enjoyed watching the waves roll in.
For dinner, we went to the Painted Marlin Restaurant, one of the nicest on the island. It has outdoor seating which was nice. Very attentive service and good food. We started with an order of fried avocado slices – interesting. Then, George and I shared a blackened tuna dinner while Pat ordered red snapper Rockefeller. A very nice evening.
Early to bed as we have a fishing trip planned in the morning.
