Here we go again... I've been such a Debbie Downer lately, hard to snap out of with this. I better pull it together or the next 5 weeks (that turned into months last time) are going to suck. Lucky I got to go on a mini-trip to Tahoe to gear up, a little, for this. … Continue reading Stay Home Order, California
Just got back from the pool, where instead of breaking my previous swim records I walked across talking to a woman who was swimming with a noodle. It was nice to get the gravity off of my back and just chat with someone...and GET OUT OF THE HOUSE!!! Yesterday was a few slow walks to … Continue reading Back is a little better
This sucks, back stuff is the worst. I feel so stupid, old & weak 🙁 I've been feeling really good after my last episode 6 mos ago when I sprinted to catch up with my son and his dog only to feel immediate pain and flag down someone to call my husband. This one was … Continue reading Back brought me down
After working so hard at it, my back said FU again 🙁 Nothing like being super healthy otherwise and unable to move. It didn't hit that hard yet, trying to prevent that by having a heat/ice day fueled with Aleve back pain (giving me a false sense of reality, but I wanted to sleep last … Continue reading Dang!
On our way to Istanbul by way of Marseille. We took the train from Nice to Marseille, a sailing town which had thousands of boats and sailboats all crammed together.

I've done it a few times, not easy but was able to pull it off somehow - always with help from someone with an outboard on their dinghy. This time I was ready with … Continue reading Moorings @ Angel Island
One of the many advantages to boat ownership is having a floating condominium here in the Bay Area. A few months ago my husband was invited to an all day event in the city, including a really nice dinner with an overnight stay. I suggested we skip the overnight stay in the hotel and just … Continue reading South Beach weekend liveaboard
Every other Friday, weather permitting, we have a sail out to a destination for lunch. This was supposed to be a way for me to meet other sailor friends and have some fun. The people available on Friday's are retired, and in the Bay Area retired means 80 years old. OK, nothing wrong with that, … Continue reading Sail Outs
Past Winter Solstice, made it through Christmas, now to look forward to longer days and a really long drive!! Kicking the New Year off with a drive back to New Mexico, as soon as the car is fixed. The NYE plan was to anchor by Treasure Island to watch the San Francisco fireworks until I … Continue reading Happy New Year!!
This is a little touch & go usually, last year I went out both days. This year I was planning on going out on Saturday with the same crew from last year, my pilot friends with their family. Then I took some childhood friends out a few weeks ago who asked to go on Sunday, … Continue reading Prepping for Fleet Week SF
