Beautiful Day in Paradise. We had clear blue skies, temperatures in the
70s and a tiny little breeze. Bladers/Bicyclers (top left)
Vivian & Max, Dee T, Dorey Anne, (middle row left) Carol J, Steve G, (bottom row
left) Bruce M, John L, Ginnie S & Rick P and Jeff B came. Welcome all.
Our biggest problem of the day is that our parking area 8th Ave was pretty full
and most of us had to pay $3 to park for two hours. We pretty much did our
normal route of Pass-a-Grille. Steve G had not done the hidden sidewalk before
and loved it. Most everyone did the 10 mile round trip.
Iara joined us on the Island off 21st Ave and Dorey Anne and Dee went back
early. We had 3 bladers and 9 bicyclers.
We Brunched at Skidders as planned. We got in after
about a 10 minute wait and seated at one long table. It was amazing as the
Bulgarian waitress, Radostina, that had waited on our group about 10 years ago
was our waitress today. Radostina does not write anyone's order down but just
listens to our orders and then walks away. Today as before she was pretty close
to perfect in bringing us what we ordered. Unfortunately as Skidders was very
busy and it took about 1 hr and 20 minutes to get seated, served, and eat.
However the food was delicious and we gave Skidders a 9.85
