Phil and Kathy Lublin picked us up this morning. It is “Market Day” in San Jose… It also is getting to be a social gathering place…3 couples from here at the RV Park, Bonnie, Doug, and Rodger…oh yes, and us… Quite honestly, when I go it is because of the streusel, coffee, and tamales. These tamales are a little different as they are wrapped flat and in a banana leaf. Now for the rest of the crew (although I noticed all the guys kind of following my lead), they were after the organic veggies and such… Louise and I bought our tamales for tonight. Tonight is supposed to be a total eclipse of the moon as it rises out of the sea, so we wanted to be prepared and well fed for such an occurrence. Phil and Kathy were expecting their daughter and son-in-law this afternoon from Ottawa, so after dropping us back at the coach they went off to fetch the kids at the airport. Louise and I went to the beach to soak up a little more sand and sun and have lunch with our feet dug deep in the sand. About 5, we all took off for the beach to watch the moon rise and be a part of this total eclipse. There were about 8 of us there as the moon began it’s rise upward….what, what happened to the eclipse??? It didn’t happen…apparently it happened somewhere else in this whole wide world, but not here. We were ready…warm night, quiet surf, chairs, blankets, cameras, binoculars, food and drink…but what about the moon??? It didn’t show.
