A visit from my son, the play and other things
Last week my son, Mike and his girlfriend Kari came to visit. The saw the play on "Friends and Family" night. We tried to go out for a sail, but smoke from the fires in Georgia was so thick, there were marine warnings posted. Visibility was down to about a quarter mile. We had a nice visit anyway.
We spent a day at the beach, went to the farmer's market and the Dali museum and spent some time on the boat hanging out and talking. I hadn't seen him in nearly a year, so it was good to have a visit, even if it was too short.
The play officially opened on Thursday. We had shows on Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Crowds have been thin so far, except for Saturday. The people who have seen it have all said they enjoyed it. We have one more week of shows. It has been a blast, and it will be sad to close the show next Sunday and strike the set. We will miss cast and crew.
After the show Sunday afternoon, the marina folks had another pot luck dinner. Some folks we met in Pensacola, Alan and Lynette, finally made it here. They've been trying to get a spot at this marina for several years and finally one opened up for them.
