Jonah’s birthday was yesterday – wow
4 years old! We had a little party at the Marriott by the pool. Jon and
Barbara Bigel (dad and stepmom) were visiting. They took Jonah to
for 2 days for his birthday. Jonah loved it! Jonah loved all his presents!
Lots of toys, books and cool stuff. I think Disneyland was probably the most
spectacular of the presents – meeting Mickey Mouse etc and riding cool
rides is about as good as it gets for a 4 year old.
I don’t like downtown
– it is a real tourist trap and isn’t that charming at all. We walked
around the waterfront and it was full of tacky postcard stores.
I am so ready to leave the
and head for warm waters. We tried to take Barbara and Jon on a day sail but
it started raining, the waves
were probably 4 to 6 feet and it looked like the weather was going to turn
uglier. There was a storm moving down from the North. Not your ideal weather
for a fun day sail for family. We came back fairly quickly.
The rain just did us in – hell I love a brisk day but I really hate
sailing in the rain unless I have to….
I do miss sailing places – I can't
wait to leave. We have some major things to do before we leave: solar panel
installation, shaft lock, and a million little things. Oh yeah – food and
dry goods provisioning…
