Several comments, and at least one ear box are in order.

And good, you're getting away. Good.

I generally liked it.

But, seriously, where the hell is she going to get cooking oil to make fried chicken in pre-colonial american lands?

Glad you liked, and thanks for the anachronism check.

Can I buy you lunch sometime & we'll talk?

Looks good by ana (2.00 / 0) #13 Sun May 25, 2008 at 12:57:41 PM EST
at this distance, at least. If you'd rather (or in addition), comments in writing would be useful as well.

Beach? by blixco (2.00 / 0) #3 Sun May 11, 2008 at 02:32:58 PM EST
I really liked being in Tomales / Dillon Beach.  It was in the country, but close to San Frantastic, and not at all overrun by tourists.

But it is California, and it isn't near a major airport. You'd have to fly in to San Francheesy or Oakland, then hitch / drive your way up to 101 north, hang a West in Petaluma, and drive until you hit Tomales.

Then you could stay at The Continental Inn, if it's still open.

Hang out at Dillon beach or anywhere along rte 1. Just north of Tomales is Bodega Bay, which is neat-ish.  But I prefer the less touristy beaches.

note: water is cold by R343L (2.00 / 0) #5 Sun May 11, 2008 at 04:17:39 PM EST
Very cold. So if the idea was beach plus lazy sunning and swimming, it may not be the best idea. People do swim lots, but it's just not warm like Eastern coast water is ...

True. by blixco (2.00 / 0) #7 Mon May 12, 2008 at 03:22:46 AM EST
I forget that people like to swim. 

Not only is the water cold, it has sharks. I went out on a jet ski / waterbike once while I was living there, and we saw four sharks. Big incentive to not fall off the thing.

Atlantic is cold in May by wiredog (4.00 / 1) #6 Mon May 12, 2008 at 03:19:03 AM EST
At least north of the Outer Banks. In OC it's pretty darned cold until July, unless you have a wetsuit.

Going on a long walk is still how I sort out most of my problems, software and otherwise. I carry a little notebook for jotting down solutions, so I don't forget them. A couple of notebooks got burned for security reasons when I was doing classified work.
