When stuck, blog!
STUCK in Dallas. At least for the time being. Just enough time to tell you a little bit more about my trip.
You must stay at My Victorian Bed & Breakfast if you visit Mobile. Naomi and Jim are superb inkeepers and have thought of every little detail. It’s right downtown and on the bus route–very convenient. (Update 4/9: I almost forgot. You must have Naomi’s omelette with BBQ chicken, sprinkled with cilantro. Not being a BBQ fan, I would never have ordered it. I’m so glad she put it in front of me. I ate every bite!)
Space 301 is part of the "Center for the Living Arts." Housed in a former newspaper building, this is a terrific venue for contemporary art. I saw a show called "Outside In–Inside-Out," paying homage to contemporary outsider art. It was nice to see several works by most of the artists, some of which I could have easily found a place for in my home.
Also in Mobile: Get the Shrimp Kabobs at Bluegill’s restaurant and a Caesar Salad with, I kid you not, fried okra croutons, at Cafe 615.
While en route, try the chicken Caesar wrap at Au Bon Pain in the airport. Too much lavash bread, but delicious.
