Time for lunch! Our first choice, El Guero Canelo, seemed to now be an empty lot.

Wearing sandals, I often got pebbles or little sticks stuck under my feet, and would have to brush them out. This time the prickery thing did not seem to brush off my foot, so I took off my sandal to find a cactus spine stuck through the sole! Karen tried to pry it out, but it just broke off. I drove home with one sandal on. Fortunately I was going to throw away this particular pair of sandals anyway!
We drove back to Ginger's for another home-cooked meal of turkey sausages with a multi-grain rice dish and broccoli. Time to catch up on each other's lives.
