Things have been slow here at sailing central. We haven't been sailing since we returned home from the Coronados. We probably won't get as many opportunities to sail now that we're back in school and we have full schedules. So we are thankful for all the practice we got over the summer months. We will most likely spend much of our time this semester working on boat maintenance and simple renovations to get everything in working order.
Ben scored a new (used) bike and we were able to ride in Critical Mass last Friday night. It was tons of fun pedal all around the city with police escorts, never having to stop for a red light. There were plenty of angry pedestrians and drivers along the way, bringing to mind the old saying "If you can't beat 'em, join 'em." We're definitely planning to ride again at the end of September.
This weekend, we enjoyed a visit from our friends, Vicky and Brian, who drove down from Silicon Valley. The four of us (and Lola, too...) had fun catching up and biking around the city.
