Busy few days. 

Sarah's parents came to visit.  WE have been showing them some of the local scenery.  Then I had three workdays.  Today I am off. 

So we did the Montana de Oro hike.  Hike is a little much...walk.  We did get to the tide pools and see lots of cool sea life.  It was nice. 

Another big reason I haven't been posting is that the other night, our lights dimmed. dimmed...dimmed and essentially went out.  Papa and I chased down the problem all night and settled, eventually, on the theory that we need a new converter.  That is after we bought a new battery.  Sigh. 

So the converter should be here in a couple of days.  We will try to get it in as soon as we get it.  I have been dealing with this little gremlin since OKC after leaving Del Rio.  I am not a huge DIY guy anyway and am particularly hesitant when it comes to electricity.  I've been jolted enough to know I don't like it. 

Off again tomorrow, I don't know what we are going to do.  Then another day of work before taking off down to San Marcos to see Dad.  Busy busy busy.
