Sunset Drive In and some Beach Bocce Ball

We've been eager to welcome the summer this year, though "summer" doesn't mean much change anymore (as it did years ago), other than warmer days and more evening sunlight. We have aspirations for summer camping trips to Big Sur and Santa Barbara, fishing trips to Kings Canyon, and time with family and friends when not on the jobs.

To kickoff the summer, here are some of our most recent activities ...

A trip to the Sunset Drive In - San Luis Obispo's finest movie joint. We saw Indiana Jones, and were pleased with Harrison Ford's performance. We didn't stay for the second feature cause we were falling asleep!

I personally love hearing about the drive in's daytime "Super Sunday Swapmeet", where the aristocrats of society gather to trade goods. I've never been, but I've heard it's loads of fun.




We played some bocce ball at Cayucos beach with the family this weekend. Victories and teams were appropriately balanced. We ended the day with giant juicy burgers from Sylvesters.

Bocce ball is a classic sport. They really should have it in the Olympics, I mean all ages can play. In fact it might be the one sport where being older is an advantage. Way to get that practice now so you can destroy when you are a senior citizen.

I've always had this vague desire to go to the Super Sunday Swapmeet but I never have. I also want to go to the Disneyana one in that big barn on 101N. I have a feeling they'd both be awesome people-watching sites.

Hey Greg and Carrie! Hope all is well....

I haven't seen the new Indiana Jones movie yet, but I hope to soon. I'm not sure if you've heard, but there's been a rather hilarious response from the Russian government about it.

I have seen some outrageous quotes, but have just included one below:

In an open letter the St Petersburg branch of Communist party has warned the star of the film, Harrison Ford, not to visit Russia, saying he will be "beaten and despised" if he does.
