    Would that "cool hot spring oasis" be Mercey hot springs?
    Beautiful quiet place.
    Haven't been there in quite a while.
    Enjoy!

    80 degrees here this afternoon at CBC. Hundreds, perhaps thousands of cormorants just offshore. And a rare sighting of a bald eagle off Capitola Wharf. The record high temps will subside early tomorrow with the arrival of a Southerly Surge and accompanying low clouds and marine air currently making its way north along the southern Big Sur Coast.

    BobJ collected a substantial portion of his trivia winnings this evening at CBC: Rum/Pecan cake, check. Triple Ginger Snaps, check. Bowl of Marianne's Macapuno icecream, check.

    CBC Port Captain Spruit found this homeless 200 pound musical machine on the sidewalk up the street. I 'm not sure why, but he has moved it in, plugged it in, and played the Notre Dame fight song to see if it works. It works, and now CBC likely is the only boat club on the west coast of North America with a Wurlitzer organ.

    A wonderful and long-overdue visit to the CBC began with High Tea at 1430. This has became a tradition for Howard and Sled. Later in the visit Sled observed that with three officers present, the CBC Executive Board had reached a quorum. We tried to think of important decisions to make. Coming up empty, Howard rode off on his scooter (apparently to look at the Wurlitzer).

    Sled was again a gracious host. I'd told him that Macapuno was neither required nor expected but two fresh quarts were on hand regardless. Other provisions were prepared and generously shared, sufficient to fuel our beach hikes and kayaking. Talking nonstop about all things sailing and racing was a treat, and I knew I'd need a strong reason to depart - today is Sail-a-Small-Boat day at RYC, an event I've been unable to attend because of tax season deadlines. But this year I can go!

    Thanks for the great visit Sled, and for honoring me with a special item from Wildflower.

    The texts while kayaking were from guess who?
