April 13 to 20, 2009 - Martinez and Lakeport (Clear Lake), CA

We left Morgan Hill and after a short but stressful drive through city traffic before finding ourselves in front of Brian's house in Martinez, CA again.  The trip was 84 miles.

Our spot is the same as previous visits, most recently April 2007.

This time we elevated the electric cord to not have a tripping hazard, which worked quite well.

Some photos of the water in Martinez with the tide out.

We had spectators:

We had a good visit and ended eating at Mr J's in Pleasant Hill and the Thai restaurant in downtown Martinez along with eating at Great Wall in Concord and Mangia Bene Trattoria in Martinez, both of which we have enjoyed on previous visits.

April 16th we drove north to visit Kimberly, Dennis and Alex.  Our speedometer again was unreliable (we have an appointment to get it fixed) so we estimate the day's drive was 160 miles.  We again stayed at Konocti Vista Casino in Lakeport, where we last stayed in April 2007.

Kimberly and Dennis's house on April 17

Somehow we did not end up taking any photos of Kimberly, Dennis or Alex.  But we had a great visit.
