We jumped in the truck with our newly discovered friends Chuck and Angela and headed in to Port Lavaca to a Mexican Restaurant named La Antigua for lunch. This would be a test for my newly recovered stomach after spending all yesterday in bed.
Nice little restaurant with lots of murals on the walls and friendly waitresses and a great big menu.
Now being from Manitoba you have to realize that there are a couple things we don't know much about. One is seafood because we are 1500 miles from any ocean, and number two is Mexican food, because we are 2000 miles from Mexico. So believe me, it took us a while to decide what we wanted and our waitress was very patient in explaining everything to us. Susan ordered the Deep fried shrimp stuffed avocado. Now that sounds like seafood AND Mexican. She covered all the bases. I ordered ground beef enchilada plate. I'm not one to push the limits. They were both fantastic meals.

Anyhow across from us were a couple ladies who were obviously best friends out for lunch. I don't think they were centurions, but darn close.

Now most families have a rule that if you don't eat your dinner, you don't get dessert. Not in our family!!! You just put dinner in a doggy bag and feed it to the dog later and go ahead and order the biggest thing on the menu. We had to try the deep fried ice cream and although it was good, it is not nearly as good as what we serve back at CJ's in the park. It had mostly whip cream to make it look big.

but we couldn't find Sues so we decided she will have to buy one. Well she found one today at Ace Hardware!!! Not sure how fair this is but oh well!!
Later in the day our friend Susan from Magnolia Beach stopped by to say so long with her dog Champ. They visited us almost everyday we were on the beach.
