Day 4


By Tuesday we slipped into a morning routine. I went to my conference and the 3 girls had a leisurely wake-up. They had plenty of time to stroll the beach as I listened to lectures about malpractice, CRNAs and the American Legal System, Fire Safety in the Operating Room and Chemotherapy. It was actually a really good morning for all of us.



At lunchtime we were tired of eating sandwiches from our own supply of deli meat, so we ate sandwiches at Camille's Restaurant instead. Margaret had done her research and found good reviews. We thought the service was slow and  poor.

We spent the rest of the afternoon walking the strip. Our destination was Historic Seaport, and we took our time getting there. Along the way we stopped by an interesting market to pick up some fresh ginger root. Apparently old sea dogs recommend it for seasickness. The word is that you can slice off a chunk of the root and the smell alone will chase away the nausea. We wanted some with us when we went out on the catamaran, but as it turns out we would never need to test the remedy.



At the seaport we bought some ice cream, toured a turtle museum, watched the pelicans, browsed through shops and learned about sunken ships.

Eventually we wandered back to Casa Marina where we kicked back, read our books and watched Dancing With The Stars.

    Hm. Moat of those are girls' bikes.

    Do you get to see the pelicans up around Winona?

    A few weeks ago we saw some pelicans flying upstream along the Mississippi. And we have lots of our favorites, the bald eagle.
