Summer 2008 we went to Hawaii with our friends, Ned & Deana for a couple of weeks of sunshine and fun.  We rented a house in Kaneohe which is located on the opposite side of Oahu from Honolulu.  David was working on a coffee farm on the big island of Hawaii and he was able to join us.  Here are some pictures.

Petaluma My Girl

"My Girl" is our Newport Mark III 30-foot sailboat.  On three separate occasions the summer 2013, artists chose to paint her.  Here, we are on the Petaluma River in Sonoma Valley.

We belong to the Hawaii Yacht Club and..

...we have a slip (B-57) at Loews Coronado Bay Resort on Coronado Island.

It is a great place to get together with friends, so please let us know if you expect to be in the neighborhood.

During our month-long cruise in July 2012 we sailed to Mission Beach, Newport Beach, Marina Del Rey & Catalina Island, where we stayed at Twin Harbors & Avalon.

The Silver Strand State Beach on Coronado Island is within a few steps of our slip.  There is an underground pedestrian tunnel going under the road from the bay side to the Pacific Ocean.
