Wishing I was in Maui, but dealing with being here

It’s Friday..

and I have the day off. Today is also the one year anniversary of the passing of Barbara Miller, David’s Mom. We decided to go over to Half Moon Bay to see if we could see any big waves at Pillar Point near where they have the Maverick’s Surf competition most every year in January. On the way over we stopped at the cemetery to see Mom and Dad

Then we went over to Princeton By The Sea to the yarn shop (actually to use the bathroom in the mall where the shop is located). Bought new, smaller, knitting needles for sock knitting. Then it was off to Pillar Point to walk on the beach and watch the waves.

After walking to the beach from the parking lot and watching the waves we returned to the car and headed out for lunch.

We wanted to eat at Barbara’s Fish Trap in honor of David’s mom. We sat down and were looking at the menu when I saw that it was a CASH ONLY establishment. As usual , I don’t carry cash. We left and decided to go to Sam’s Chowder House. Very nice lunch. David had his usual fish and chips and pronounced them very good. I had a crab louie. The crab was fresh and sweet. The dressing was not the usual heavy thousand island and was very good. The clam chowder was very good as well.

We’re talking about going back in February on the anniversary of my mom’s passing, February 15th.

Weather reports make it sound like it will be a wet weekend. Plan to make a Pear Upside down Cake and possibly pasta with clam sauce. Also want to start the second sock on smaller needles. That will mean re-making the first sock. Oh well, it’s  a learning process.

Hope everyone has a good weekend.
