Today was another unseasonably WARM day in Crescent City - 70's in February. Once everyone had cycled through the showers we headed across the street to Hiouchi Cafe. This is an OLD 1940's cabin turned bar, turned restaurant. In it's day it was quite the place. Michael's Grandpa Jack served drinks at the bar and his Grannie Annie was known to play the piano here in the 1940's. In the over 30 years I've been coming here - and all of Michael's life - we've never eaten here. I suppose it's too close to home to mess with eating out. LOL With Mom G's tales ringing in our ears, it was fun to stop in for breakfast this morning. I may pack less breakfast items in the future.
Krista left to drive back to Oregon.

We spent another day visiting with Mom G, doing a few jobs she'd saved for us and enjoying playing BY (not in) the river.

We enjoyed our dinner and watched the sun set over the harbor. Of course we HAD to take some time and walk along the docks and harbor....enjoyed Battery Point Lighthouse from this view and talked.....favorite memories of 31 years....wedding day, cabin in the woods in AK, Winter sleigh ride in AK....good times.

What about this couple says, "Seat them in the bar?" Michael insists it has to be my sweatshirt - since his was the Elmendorf Gospel Choir Sweatshirt - I suspect he may be correct.

This cracked us up. It was a message on Tsunamis - there have been a couple here of note - but you had to crank the thing up to hear the message.
Michael is over for a last visit and we are buttoning up the trailer......Arielle isn't feel well - full case of flu I think or food poisoning? - praying this drive home ends better than it's beginning.
