Thanksgiving Day in San Carlos

Had a very nice day yesterday. We went out to breakfast with friends. Then went over to the marina just to look around. It is always pretty there - the water, boats and flowers. Love the bougainvillea when it is blooming. 
Saw this guy painting big platters. He makes it look so easy.
He had a display table there too. I love the seahorses - they are in front in the middle, kind of hard to see.
Then we noticed a group of people standing around a sailboat on a trailer - of course had to go see what they were doing. Turned out they were getting it ready to put it in the water. 
The workers put a couple big straps under it. Straps attached to a crane. Then lifted it.
Swing it out towards the water.
Lowering it in the water. It only took a few minutes. Interesting to watch – as long as it wasn’t my boat!
Then we came home – Bill has a guy working on the outside compartment doors – trying to remove the blisters. They showed up again after getting it painted. Come to find out the interior [insulation?] of the doors is wet. So they are trying to dry that out and will go from there.
Then later we went out for Thanksgiving Dinner. Eight of us to El Mar restaurant. Very good dinner – Turkey, dressing, mashed potatoes, gravy, yams, cranberry sauce and green beans. I took a picture of it BUT – didn’t have the memory card in the camera! How could I forget to put it back. Well I did. BUT – the picture is in the camera, in the cameras memory. The only problem is I can’t figure out how to get it out of the camera’s memory into my laptop. There has got to be a way….
All together a very nice day. Good weather, good friends and good food. 
On edit - I learned how to get the picture from memory to memory stick - thank goodness for the internet...
