Good morning Longbranch.
The evening’s showers look like it really got the ground wet. My neighbor said “it is a pleasant surprise” to not have rain pour down on us yesterday. For the most part, many of us spent the day enjoying Mother’s Day and working on the yard.
I took my lovely bride to Lulu’s Homeport for breakfast yesterday. Lulu had her ribeye steak and eggs breakfast on special. I had mine medium rare and the eggs over-easy. My lovely bride had the Tom’s omelette, egg beaters with yummy veggies.
We were not the only ones thinking Lulu’s place was a good idea on Mother’s Day. The neighborhood diner was slammed. Crystal, our friendly host, had to call in reinforcements.
It was a lovely breakfast with good food and a tremendous atmosphere. The chatter and the love was impressive. Good people live here in our neck of the woods. I thought I had gone home for mom’s eggs and longanisa (sweet pork sausage).
Anyway, it is currently 55 degrees, cloudy and damp. The weather geeks are expecting thunderstorms today and a high of 63. Brrrr. I may have to breakout the fleece.
Update: I found out Monday morning the identity of the venerable vessel chugging along Drayton’s Passage yesterday afternoon. It is the 38-foot wooden boat Jackbull out of Longbranch Marina. Don Gill was going home after a weekend in Olympia for the 34th Annual Wooden Boat Fair at Percival Landing. Now, that is what I call a classic.
