While we've been in Sausalito our friends Tony and Sally who live up the road in Novato came over and took us out to dinner to a great Italian restaurant. We usually only get together once a year to celebrate our anniversary of the day we stopped smoking, twenty one years ago. It was good to see them. Our friends Debbie and Linda P. came for a couple of days. Jan and the girls went into downtown and shopped and had lunch. We all had a great time and will miss not seeing them as much.
Our new friend Erika D., who works within walking distance from us and recently married Patrick (son of our long time close friends) invited us to the St. Francis Yacht Club. Her mom and dad have been long time members. She picked us up and drove us to have lunch and give us a tour. All I can say is WOW! How historic and just a beautiful club. We also need to thank her dad and mom, Charlie and Margo for allowing us the opportunity to have such a wonderful afternoon. THANKS. After we returned to Sausalito Erika showed us where she works, which is a non profit called, "The Call of the Sea". They charter out an 80 foot sailboat. Google it!
Over the weekend our son Michael, Jessica, Carter, and Dylan came to visit and Mike and Jess went to the 49er's game on Sunday. Sorry all you Green Bay fans. We all went to Scoma's in Sausalito Saturday night to celebrate my birthday. This was the first time I've been to this Scoma's. I think the one in S.F. is better, for sure. Mean while here in Sausalito Jan and I try to keep busy. Yesterday we got all the isinglass washed and put up on the boat, we walked to CVS, the grocery store and West Marine. Chloe continues to hang in there looking forward to her daily walks, but not so much in the rough waters. Being here on an end tie we get the swells from the bay and she doesn't like the motion of the boat going back and forth. After over a week here we think she's starting to get her sea paws.
Forecast for the sea conditions not looking too good. Going to go over to Alameda and wait.
