San Francisco – October 2010

Katie and I had a wonderful visit with Tommy, Yuki, and Ryusei in San Francisco in October.  From just hanging out, to baby sitting so that Tommy and Yuki can get out (at least that was our excuse!), to a bike ride across the Golden Gate Bridge to meet Yuki, Katie and Ryusei in Sausalito for breakfast, and then on to Tiburon, and back San Francisco.  A lovely morning on the road!  Came back to watch The Blue Angels from Tommy and Yuki’s rooftop.  What a view!  Lovely dinners, but most of all, a great time with our son and daughter-in-law, and of course our Ryusei!.


Here’s a short video… Click on the image of The Golden Gate Bridge


Well, I couldn’t resist.  Yuki sent me a bunch of photos from our trip to San Francisco in October.  I took about 40 of them and added 20 of mine to put together this two-minute slide show.

Click on the image above to load the slide show.  This will take you to my MobileMe Gallery.

Also see Alaska Videos:

Wrangell Sunset: After a wonderful day visiting the Leconte Glacier, we enjoyed a sundowner.  We were treated to a spectacular show.

Dove Island Lodge: Day 1: Our first day fishing was very successful.  I caught the largest King Salmon of the trip: 30 pounds!  Here are a few funny clips.

Last Day at Dove Island Lodge: After Duane Lambert dropped us off at Salmon Creek, our excellent guide, Vic, took us for an amazing day hiking upstream and fishing down Salmon creek. Here are a few humorous clips of the “expert fishermen” and their bloopers, followed by Duane picking us up in his float plane and “Let’s Talk Hookup” radio show host and trip organizer Pete Gray doing a tight-rope cable walk between the pontoons of the Otter…


Dan and Jessica’s Belize Wedding

On February 13, 2010 we celebrated the marriage of our daughter, Jessica Grové to Dan Cooney.  Giving away your only daughter in marriage is a momentous experience.  I tried to prepare myself for this event, but I could not possibly have anticipated how special this would be.  We had almost 100 guests – friends – many who spent the best part of a week or longer with us in our favorite place, Belize, at our condo there on Ambergris Caye.  We are honored to have gained Dan as a member of our family, and to have joined his family with ours.

Thank you to everyone who made such a special effort to come to Belize to share in this special time in our family’s life.

The Joy of a Hobie Cat

A short film of my new Hobie Cat. I shipped this boat from San Diego where I purchased it as a kit from Fast Lane Sailing. It arrived in San Pedro in many pieces, and Vic Tharp, my brother-in-law and I assembled it with the help of Gato and several other friendly Belizeans.

This boat was easy to assemble and is an absolute pleasure to sail!
