Here is a beautiful picture of Johnny and Maria watching the Oceanside Boat Parade.
It reminded me of 2005 when I was called out for Hurricane Katrina and ended up in Galveston for the Thanksgiving and pre-Christmas season. The power was finally back on everywhere and restaurants were back in business. Our job was meeting with people who had had damage to their homes or property and wanted low interest loans to replace them. A young man working with us was being transferred and wanted to go to a really nice seafood restaurant he had heard of before he left and two of us ladies went with him. I had Red Fish in honor of John. Then we went outside and watched the Lighted Boat Parade. It is a nice memory.
