Day out with Stella


Today Stella and I went to the spa, owned by this pooch's  human, to have pedicure/manicure with my gift certificate.

When we checked in they had gotten the date wrong but had an opening in about an hour, so I gave that to Stella, she is leaving so soon for Finland and did not have the time that I have. I will go back another day. It is a beautiful spa!


We went around the corner  to have spa lunch which was superb! Fish taco and crab melts and creme brulie . We timed it perfectly. 


We sat next to a table of three men, Two Chinese and one white guy who did all the talking "Why would I hire a Chinese person", he said loudly...(?) I think he was being dick.

As we left I spotted this guy wearing a Whitstable t-shirt, stopped to chat about Whitstable and England and how much I yearned, and how our oysters are much better than theirs... They were headed down the coast to San Franciso .


While Stella was getting her nails spa-ed. I took a walk around but did not go down the dock.




A girl with a banjo and a lovely voice belted out some great bluegrass tunes in the sunshine.



and then I cam home, took a pain pill and watched the bad news on the box...because i just don't know how this horror will work out, This nation if so f**ked. 
Optimistic about the youth and their fervor!! They are a sharp lot, I have hopes!

  1. May there be a children's crusade. May it be successful. Because we "adults" have surely not gotten the job done.

  4. It helps to get outside and rub shoulders with the world, and remind ourselves that the world outside the box holds promise, still.
