We took a day to go across the border to shop for glasses for me, at Algodones Optical the closest to the border. Such a deal!!!! They had a buy one get one free special going on. Cost $160 for two pairs of trifocals using the
poly plastic lenses to make my strong prescription lighter weight - one pair clear and one made into sunglasses. They look pretty much like my purple pair in design, but they are metal in a bronze tone. I like having a sunglass pair so I don’t have to use those big “over the glasses” style sunglasses. As we had two hours to kill before the glasses would be ready, we walked around the town.
First we stopped for lunch at the shrimp taco place in the next block on the left. They’ve added fish tacos to the menu so we had one of those too. Jim didn’t like it as well as the shrimp one, but I liked it even better.
Waiting in line. They also have tamales, etc. with Coke in glass bottles made with real cane sugar bottled in Mexico…so good!
Round fryer over large burner underneath. Finished shrimp on top
They we wondered around some.
Didn’t buy much this trip, but did get myself a purse. I really like the colorful loom woven purses…nice to have something NOT made in China for a change.
Picked up my glasses and was very happy with the fit. Next came getting out through U.S. Customs…ugh…the line was the longest we have ever seen. Had to go down to the second block, but it only took us 40 minutes to get through as they had all four stations opened and running.
Got home in time for happy hour out here in Mittry. Good group of folks.
Remember, you are loved.
