MidWeek Trip To BlackThorne Inn



So, For those that don’t know, Greg got officially hired on in a full time position as a First Officer at Alcatraz Cruises. This is fantastic news and we are really happy about it, except for one minor thing. HIS SCHEDULE – it’s less than desired. He is working on a shift Fri – Monday noon to 10:30pm. For those working normal 9-5 M-F jobs (which I do), you can see how this is not really ideal… Hopefully it’s a low man on the todem pole kinda thing and it won’t last long.

Anyhoo – that was a couple of weeks ago, so this week to celebrate our anniversary – we decided to treat ourselves to a mid week overnight at the BlackThorne Inn in Inverness. It was a very cool place with all sorts of details from places such as old San Francisco Railroad depo doors – and woodwork from old San Francisco piers.


Here is an overview of the place…

We had dinner at Vladimir’s – a place we went to when we first started dating..


We stayed in the Eagle’s Nest room which had a cool entrance in the floor


And a hot tub just outside our door which was private after 10pm…


We had a great time.




Matey spent the time at Nonnie’s, we haven’t picked her up yet – but we hear she did sneak her way into the bedroom to sleep next to Nonnie. But unfortunatley she wasn’t able to convince her to invite her on the bed. Maybe next time…














Random Photos – or excuse for a test



Am really trying to figure out updating via email with pictures where I’d like them to go in the email… Here’s my test
