Headed downeast --great shop and lunch at the Mex!!

Love this mural on the wall of one of my fav restaurants in town 30 miles northeast of here!
Had a Christmas return at an interesting store "Rooster Brothers"! They have cooking supplies and the smell of coffee beans all through the great old building.
The ladies putting the beans in this huge machine-I'm not sure if they were grinding or roasting-but it sure is heavenly smells for a coffee lover!!
Then up the street to The Mex-after spending an hour browsing "Roosters"-and still having some of gift certificate left -so I need to come back! Got a lovely little bag of goodies!
Very interesting things to keep the little guy looking at!!
Wonderful colors!
I was in a sunny Florida kinda day-my girlies didn't seem
to mind too much and little guy always approves my wild choices!!
The food was fabulous-why didn't I take a picture......too busy eating - and at the last minute before the meal-decided I needed a house margarita..........waitress laughed-she's close to my age-and together we said it--"it's 5 o'clock somewhere!!
Love this huge wall mural !!!
Headed home -with Gigi in the back seat this time-margarita-and letting little guy share my scarf-much to the chagrin of his mother!!
