Billy came to the door yesterday afternoon with an abalone he’d got a few hours earlier, and two big crabs. Lesley’s had a ton of people over at her “Open Studio” this weekend, so last night we had abalone and white rice, a simple and wonderful meal. Tonight cracked crab.
In the words of Josh the fisherman, “The ocean’s really healthy here right now.” (Can you believe good news like this nowadays?)
I went out for a paddle in the lagoon Wednesday, the day before Thanksgiving. Late afternoon, I couldn’t believe how cold the water was and only my hands and arms were in it. Turned out to be San Francisco’s coldest day in 100 years. Took an hour to get warm by the wood stove.
Lesley’s studio will be open tomorrow (Sunday Nov. 28) She’s working on a beautiful quit right now of Japanese fabrics. She’s also got necklaces, hand-woven shawls, and a bunch of quilts.
