Trip report update

My California trip is nearing its end. It's been a great time. Today's big finish was a day flying with my friends Will and Jason.

We flew Will's Arrow from Watsonville to San Carlos, where we picked up Jason. Then we continued up over San Francisco and up to Napa Airport where we had lunch at the legendary Jonesy's.

Before arriving here in Santa Cruz I spend two days with Sherman in Berkeley. We had dinner with Rick and Jo Ann on Thursday. Then on Friday Rick and I went down to Palo Alto for breakfast at the world famous Peninsula Creamery.

On Friday afternoon I joined Sherm at a Cal soccer game where they pretty much annialated some team in white and red.

On Saturday nite I arrived at Will's in the Santa Cruz mountains. Beautiful area!

It turns out the Mrs. Will, Dawn, is an award-winning gourmet chef, and between the two of them they treated us to an awesome dinner.

I head home tomorrow, arriving in Manchester really late, and it's back to work on Tuesday.

It's been a great trip.
