Something Pithy Here

"Begin at the beginning, and go on till you come to the end: then stop." -- The King of Hearts

I'm an adopted Texan. As they say, "I wasn't born in Texas, but I got here as fast as I could!" I post pictures and opinions as suits my mood, mostly because I can. Hooray Internet! 

So far I have three blogs here. By the Way is the oldest. I started it in 2003. I lost a couple of years to Vox because I was too lazy to bother to export when they shut down. I consider it an exercise in accepting impermanence. When I followed my husband to Singapore for his first expat assignment, I started (T)expatriate: A Southern Girl in Singapore. That covers 2010 and 2011, give or take. Next came Oslo, and (T)expat 2: Norwegian Boogaloo,  in 2012. Now I'm back home, and back on By the Way.

Pix live on Flickr. I toss links out on Twitter when I feel like it. I'm still not sure what to do with G+ but I kinda like it.

 

Dinner Adventure

Last night we went on a little dinner adventure with Andy and Louise. We tried the seafood restaurant down by the San Jacinto Monument. Turns out it's a very popular place and deservedly so. We waited about 30 minutes to get a window table (worth it!) and then gorged on delicious marine critters of every variety.

The restaurant is right next to the Lynchburg Ferry, which runs the cutest little bitty ferry boats I've ever seen.

There was a lot of water traffic in the early evening, with the ferries crossing back and forth over the wakes of huge tankers, and tugs herding along their strings of barges.

Afterwards we took them to The Point for beers and more boat-watching, but we gave up after a single beer because the mosquitoes were unbearable. On our last visit there we learned to bring cash, and now next time we'll know to bring bug spray. We'll eventually get the hang of the place....
