Winter 2012

 Board, boots, bindings, jacket and pants. My order is in, now we just have to wait and hope that we have an amazing winter-fest like last year. I ordered the Burton Feelgood Flying-V. The Burton Feelgood that I rode 10 years ago was hands down my favorite board, so I am getting excited to see how I like this one, as I have never ridden a camber or rocker board before. I was talked into trying the EST bindings too,. Hope those compounded with my new board does not make for a squirrely setup. Kit said it may be at first because of the rocker, but I am just happy to finally have my new gear! Now, we just need some snow.

Napa and Tahoe

In mid October Kit and I went to South Lake for Mikey and Tasha's wedding. We stayed in SF Friday night before heading up to the lake, and since we were in the area we pit stopped in Sonoma for a quickie wine tasting. The weather was gorgeous up in Tahoe, which was incredible since last year at that time they had snow. The wedding was on the Tahoe Queen, and Tasha looked beautiful, and Mikey was happier than I had ever seen him. It makes me happy when good people find good love. The dinner was awesome, we sat with Bobby, his girlfriend Lindsay, and Mark. Once we docked, everyone cruised into the Riva Grill for the after party. It was a Rum Runner infused evening for me, and so the next morning we ate at the new Red Hut near the Village for greasy post party dinner. We took off  after paying Cec & Errol a visit to get back to Marin. Once back to the city we ate at Umami Burger in the Marina with Jeff, then made our way to Darcie and Ryan's house in Sausalito. Ian and Danielle came over too and we had a  dinner that night to celebrate their engagement. Yup, Ian popped the question over the weekend. We are so happy for them and cannot wait to celebrate their big day with them. Hopefully in Brazil????


Catalina Sail trip

In October Kit and I went to Catlaina with Chase and Melissa. We left super early Saturday morning and were in Catalina by noon. While Kit and Chase attempted a dive, Melissa and I paddle boarded over to the Casino bar and enjoyed some margaritas. We had a little cocktail hour at sunset then boarded the shore boat for a nice evening ashore. We ate at El Galleon, then strolled along the boardwalk before we settled into Luau Larry's where Kit and I shared some Mai Tais. From there we went to the Marlin Club. I was so tired from the day that Kit and I left the others ashore and took off for our boat. It was a great weekend, and we are looking forward to sailing over in the spring.
