|2001 S-500 ready to depart on road trip. Named the Uboat. |
Sparky, the happiest dog in the world, is wondering why he
can't go too.
|A nice concrete path to the Willamette River in Portland.|
|We found white sandy beach with a pretty girl for our lunch|
stop. Life is good.
|Count Ferrari with a boat on the hard on the beach.|
A Buccaneer 30 looks like fun!
River moorings be shallow.
Arrived Roseburg OR @6:30 PM to stay with Auntie M (Aunt to both Ev and I)
|Cousin Ev and Auntie M in Roseburg. Tremendous|
|Auntie M showing off her balanced art.|
She loves to create in metal.
|This art piece is titled Horsepower and is made from old|
car parts to the shape of a horse.
Everett takes a public bath:
|The day was hot but the water was NOT.|
|Looking for a place to dive in.|
Arrival in Sebastopol was to temps around 98F in a house with no AC. However the temps did cool off at night and really never got hot again for our stay.
|The Sebastopol stop. Ground hogs(?) ruled the dirt!|
|Ed showing off his mountain bike form after doing a|
103 mile ride two days previously on his road machine.
|Energy Team and China Team crossing. Taken with a baby point and shoot from the shore. Note the fog|
DAY 2 in SF: (Thursday)
|Ev looking at the new Oracle World being built on the|
water at about Pier 28 (?) For those who don't know (like
The Count) the piers are numbered evenly south of
the Bay Bridge and odd north of same.
|Our favorite shuttle from Pier 19 to the Marina Green.|
|Parking for Media at Pier 32.|
|Note the moorings for the AC 45s.|
|San Francisco from Twin Peaks with The Count listening to cousin Ev.|
A group of 10 Anacortes sailors came down and my Anacortes Yacht Club Commodore and his lovely companion were welcomed at the GGYC for all days of race watching.
|Mac and Wendy inside the GGYC. AYC was well represented.|
|Traipsing around Golden Gate Park.|
|The B-2 (according to my cousin Peter who wrote in correcting me) bomber making a pass for the air show. |
We were on the water shuttle to watch it go by. Very impressive!
How does it stay in the air?
|Typical crowd seen looking at Crissy Field, just W of|
|The jetty and the crowd with the best view, unless you|
were watching on TV.

We packed UP and found a place called Hole In the Wall in Sebastopol for a great breakfast and motored East and then North to Roseburg OR for the night. We got in a game of disc golf in Roseburg at the Veteran's Administration Disc Golf park. A very nice 18 hole course with concrete tees and Mach III baskets with some tight trees to get around. The Count shot a +5 but should do better.
|Interesting Tee info. Only half of the plaques on the tees survived the vandals.|
Back to Arlington, WA after dropping off cousin Ev at the ferry at 4:45 PM, the traffic north was feared but turned out to be really pretty easy as I took 1:15 hours getting me home from Seattle through rush hour, arriving at 6:00 PM.
Whew! Always so good to get home!
