Julie and I have now been married for twenty years. We decided to have a getway weekend to Mendocino. We spent two nights at the Brewery Gulch Inn which was a wonderful place to stay. In the evening they served wine and appetizers that were unbelievable. It is a great place to stay.

On Saturday we went ocean kayaking from Van Damme State Park with Lost Coast Adventures. Our small group hugged the coast looking and both plentiful wildlfe and some huge homes. The highlight was when we went through several sea caves. This is a must do.

The Sierras

Brian and his friend Jeff have an annual backpacking trip to Yosemite. This yeara they decided to go to an area in the Tahoe National Forrest. Unfortunately the fire consitions prohibited them from using a stove. With overnight temptatures near 30 degrees, they opted for a long dayhike instead. It was a beautiful hike.

Jeff and Kathe recently bought a vacation home in Tahoe Donner, so Julie and the kids went up a stayed there as well. We had a lot of fun laughing at just about everything.

When we got married Jeff was unable to make it out from Chicago to our wedding, something that we have never let him forget. Jeff however made up for it this weekend by dressing up in a tux and helping us cut our cake (with Patrick and Christopher). It was great.

Jeff finally made it to 'Our Wedding', tux and all. Posted by Hello
