Livin' La Vida Local in Moss Landing

We collected the coach from the shop and completed our short hop to Moss Landing.  All in all it was a two-day delay and we took it in stride; having the Subaru with us made a huge difference to our comfort, especially the animals, while wrangling the tow company, repair facility, picking up new parts, and hotel shuffling. We were planning to leave it behind with Gramma in Prunedale for a little while and then sell it later, but now I'm starting to have second thoughts about that.  I think we will continue to caravan the Subaru until Lance's foot is completely healed and he can again wear motorcycle boots with impunity.

Moss Landing is, as usual, enveloped in cool fog.  We have embraced the local cuisine as much as possible, which is fish and artichokes in this part of the land.  Lance bought some fresh lingcod right off the boat and grilled it up with some Castroville artichokes from the field next door, doesn't get any fresher than that.  Tonight we will take Gramma to Phil's for some fresh fish and live music.  Tuesday we hit the road headed for Lincoln, there are some tweaks to be made still on the Corporate HQ computer setup.

I've got a lot of bookkeeping work to do and am working long days to keep it all under control. Lance drags me out for lunch breaks whenever he can, today's lunch break was a quick walk on Moss Landing beach with the whales on the horizon.  There's nothing in the world quite like a happy dog running on the beach. 

So far the internet connectivity has been solid and so access hasn't slowed me down at all.  When we can get a Sprint signal we have unlimited high-speed internet, if we can't get Sprint we can still tether the phones and use our AT&T 4G connection but it's not unlimited so we may have to pay for additional GB here and there if we rely on it too much, we'll see how that shakes out. Fortunately my bookkeeping work isn't very GB heavy, this will definitely become more of an issue when Lance starts uploading video files. The WeBoost antenna has significantly improved our reach.
