Yesterday, 9/28, I rode the rails to the airport. Two trains and two mistakes, but I made it. I ended at both stations that can take one to France. Maybe I'll go. 🤔

Early evening time out relaxing with the water. Gelato treat, vanilla & macadamia nuts. This was yesterday. Today I did a dry run to the airport in preparation for Margaret's and Joyce's arrival next Saturday. Made it back alright with just a couple of jogs when I should've jagged.

Planned to go grocery shopping, but the Mercado is closed on Sunday. So decided to go try Big Al's the best hamburgers in Spain. Good, but huge! Bought a chicken Cesar salad for dinner, but I'm still full from lunch so I'm drinking wine and nibbling on chips.
