Got to be a tourist this past week while my husband had an engineering conference up there. I've been there a few times for work related things, have never really checked it out. It's booming! That's either good or bad, depending on the companies that are creating that boom with rising housing prices. Here in … Continue reading Seattle
9.4.18: Let your mind wander, and make sure to write down the peaks and valleys of your journey. You are exploring new mental territories, and they demand being recorded and shared. Take heart if you experience writer’s block. Slow down and pace yourself through your cerebral landscape. The words may not come quickly, but they will … Continue reading Horoscope for Today
I was on the water all week, either in Tahoe or here in the Bay area. Sailing is taking a boat out and waiting for everything to go wrong, picking and choosing your battles. Our father's day plan was that I would take my husband out to Angel Island for the night on the moorings … Continue reading Windsurfing Committee Boat

I was so overwhelmed that I ended up going to the Walmart next door and buying a pole & line for … Continue reading Off-line for days

This would seem to be a perfect sailing day, it's nice to just relax though. Because of all the dog sitting, I haven't slept on the boat for months. It's rare that there are two days in a row to even sail somewhere overnight with all the family stuff lately and being out of town. … Continue reading A night on the boat
It's been a month since I took the boat out, that's the longest she's ever sat there. The winds on my trip were hectic, it's been small craft advisory ever since I've been back. We decided to head out early to Angel Island to make sure we got a dock for hiking since it's Memorial … Continue reading Back on the Bay
