"Routine" ​ 😁 ​day in lockdown... how was yours?

Yes, we went in 2017. We flew to San Fran and drove to Monterey.  Our hotel was there and was base. 
 

If folks are interested I could post some pics from the 5 day whirlwind. It would included cars, golf courses and Alcatraz.  
 

Let me know what you all think. 

All pics very much welcomed, whether cars, golf, or Alcatraz. The 17 mile drive is just gorgeous if that’s in your photo library. 
 

Unfortunately, we will miss the Amelia Concours this year. It got push back from March into May due to Covid. We will be back in Ohio then selling our house. Oh well, probably won’t be the full experience this year anyway and there will be many years still to come.

Plan for the day:

1. Go for a walk

2. Spend about an hour at the driving range pretending like I am improving my golf game.

3. Spend several hours in front of the television watching Sunday at the Masters.

 

Would love to see Will Zalatoris win today.  He's going to feel pressure like he never has in his young life.

 

Change of plans.  It's cooler and rainy here today so no walk or driving range.  Instead, lots of TV, recliner, and refrigerator action.  Hoping that Hideki Matsuyama doesn't build on his 3rd round Masters lead and that we get a typical Sunday finish.  Masters Sunday is my favorite golf day of the year (apologies to Graham and our other UK friends here 😁).

Thanks for providing that link.  I remember looking it up at the time. I knew it was owned by one of those Uber-rich Russians.  They seemed to be having a competition on who could have the biggest, or most expensive yacht.  

He also has a sailing yacht with the same name. 600Mil for that one.

Every now and then I think about what it must be like to have that kind of money.  A billion dollars probably generates at least $50M a year in interest.  It would be a nice challenge to have to spend $50M a year or your wealth grows even more.  A $300M yacht plus what is likely several million $ a year in operating costs would make that challenge easier.

The front section looks like an upside down boat.

Check out wayfair.com  I just bought a patio/dining set that looks very similar to their set. I ordered online.  Supposed to arrive by end of next week.  

Only thing is we will have to assemble it.  I'm sure instructions will be another language.

Thanks, I’ve looked on Wayfair. They have several dining sets I like but can’t find matching pool chaise loungers.  I’ll look again though.

It is a similar afternoon here. I’m watching the Masters and enjoying some popcorn.

Didn't you get ❄ after opening it last year.

 

 


Yes, and that’s why we are waiting a week or two longer this year.

Beautiful set up.  Installation of Unilock pavers begins next week on ours. Will be done in 2 weeks (so the contractor says LOL).  May I ask the make of your dining set & pool loungers?  I’m having trouble finding ones that match (and don’t have cushions).  


 

They are American made by Telescope Casual. The far two chairs are actually rockers.  We got to choose our fabric which doesn’t sun fade and are mold and mildew proof. The chairs and table bases are made from aluminum.  The end tables and large table tops are made from Marine Grade Polymer.  
 

We have had them for 5 years and would buy their product again.

I almost went a couple of years ago with a car friend but scheduling conflicts. We had a concours d.  like that here in Mpls on Lake Minnetonka. I volunteered for it and was it was a wonderful experience. Big lake, cars, antique boats and some cycles on the grass, a site to behold. Pebble Beach is where the Bob Hope classic was played.

Yes, post some car photos and Alcatraz if you can.

Thanks Graham.  I have my book packed if it is raining all day, plus lots of DVD movies we keep in there to play...and I tossed in some microwave popcorn. 

 

Could be a movie, popcorn, and wine afternoon.  😉 

 

Sprite and Makers Mark

 

Plus our version of 'All Dressed'

With only 4 days in Monterey we didn’t make it to the Concours d'Lemons nor the 24 Hours of Lemons race at Laguna Seca. It looked up where it was but time didn’t permit. If we go again we will make it there. 
 

I’ve spent a bit of time figuring out what photos to post from all of them, so I might start after supper tonight. I might do posts it like a mini “live” review.

Hi MJSailors, I did not know that particular family, but they probably lived on a different "Walk" as the streets were/are called.  It was a great place to spend summers. My parents owned a bungalow for a few years, rented for another, and my grandparents lived there for many years. 

 

A lot of NYC firefighters and police officers live there. 

And unfortunately Queens saw many casualties in 911 because of the high population of first responders.

 

My cousins lived in Belle Harbor and it was always a treat visiting them from Manhattan where I grew up.

 

Are you a Mets fan? Many Dodger fans became Mets fans when The Dodgers left (abandoned) Brooklyn for LA. Lonnng time ago. 1957

Ha, we had the same down in the south. Warm enough to sit out in the garden and then an hour later a snow storm ❄️

Bon TexasNY- 

   Not mets07, but another Mets fan.

You are right about Dodger fans becoming Mets fans. My father,from Greenpoint,Brooklyn ,was a long time Dodger fan. He was so glad when the Mets started in NY. I went to many games with him at Shea Stadium.

My DH and I have gone to games at Citi Field. It is a nice stadium, but there was something about going to Shea.

      I also saw the Beatles concert there - just great!

We picked from a few different lines from this company and it worked well for us.  Hope you find something that works for you.

We flew into San Fran from Toronto on Thursday.  We landed in San Fran around 4pm. We drove right drove to Monterey but we stopped at In and Out for dinner along the way.

You can really see that it was the dry season.  I could imagine how quickly these hills would burn up.

We were just arriving at Monterey as the sun was setting. The Monterey Marriott was our home for the week. it was a long day of travel.
