Birthday Update: Saturday

On Saturday, we continued my awesome birthday weekend with a visit to St. Clements Island. We took the boat out to the island and realized that we were the only ones there and it was just so cool. We had a picnic lunch (of sushi that I’d made earlier-he got salmon and unagi, and I had avocado rolls) and then napped under a tree by the water. Then we noticed our awesome island was no longer ours and some other boats came out. We swam in the water for a little bit and then we were invited to join the opening day of the St. Clements Island lighthouse, which is so new I can’t find anything on the web about it. It was pretty neat but the pictures were doing something weird so I only have these. And one that I’ll share in another post.

This cross is HUGE…not as big as Mt. Soledad, but still cool. In October there is a pretty cool even on the island too. It’s called “the blessing of the fleet” and a priest blesses the boats that come to the river for the blessing. Very cool!
