I’ve been in Northern California since Friday afternoon. Today is the first dry day. Rained all weekend, destroying all plans to skate with my friends Dale or Gary, but it was fun hanging with Dale anyway. Much good food was eaten and skateboarding discussed. Had a great trip to the Museum of Modern Art, in San Francisco. Very enjoyable.
Drove back down to Monterey on Sunday afternoon, in the rain. It isn’t really that far, but the drive is always sorta tiring. Took the less-scenic route in order to avoid highway 17, and the severe stress it always inflicts on me.
The keynote at the conference was interesting, as have been the sessions so far. I’ll write about them later tonight. Just had my usual first day lunch (and usually second and third) of fried calamari. Good stuff. Hoping for some dry weather tonight, so I can venture to the little skatepark nearby. However, I suspect the moisture will accumulate. That seems to be the way it works here, in which case I’ll probably read part 2 of On the Road and get a nice milk shake via room service.
