Dad and Sarah took time out to come have dinner and watch the sunset. Sarah found that she could still keep in touch with her daughter (if she would answer) even on the boat in the middle of the water. Pops found himself right at home on stern seats
We of course made our way over to Minney's, the Sanford and Son of boat supply stores, but always good for a treasure or two, including for the teak colored crew of Seaglub
We got the hammocks out, and met new friends B'Shert, Ann and Michael who shared our viewing entertainment of the knuckleheads.

After getting cited for driving Tipsea around with no registration (actually the officer was really understanding and let us go with just fix it ticket - thank goodness no breathalyzer!) we then had an officer board us! Sorta, he was my best friend from high school and for many more years, now successful family man and fire department officer for Newport Beach.

|Two ice creams?! Looks like Dad realized his is missing. At least you're wearing a cool t-shirt!|
