July 11th

Luckily, no adventures today.  Took a long walk and finished my second book of the trip. The weather was lovely and windy. The race committee got off 5 races today. The boys are working on their starts and seemed happy with their improvement.  After the regatta, they hung out at Willie and Tyler’s apartment and had pasta for dinner. When I picked them up to bring them home they asked about having a second dinner. I guess they worked up an appetite today!  I took them to a restaurant and found a few US parents to chat with while the kids ate with friends. I had dinner earlier at our hotel and ordered a freshly caught fish from the lake that was staring up at me with beady eyes. It was tasty once I removed all the bones. As I was dining, a very German grandmother complete with her hair in a bun came up to my table and asked the waitress to interpret for her. She heard I had two teenage boys from America. Her 17-year-old granddaughter was visiting from Santa Cruz and she wanted them to meet. The granddaughter in tow looked horrified. I invited her down to the yacht club tomorrow afternoon. I doubt she’ll show up, but I hope so.

  1. This picture is so lovely! I can't imagine what must be going through our boy's heads. What an amazing experience they must be having. Can't wait to see you all on Saturday. We arrive in Zurich around 11am on Saturday. We will pick up our car (and a map!) and drive to Porto Ronco.
    Should I bring peanut butter???
