Yesterday we went for a walk along the boardwalk looking for an ice cream shop he remembered, and eventually realized it had been razed because it was on a chunk of pier (right near where we parked) where there had been a big fire. Heard sea lions and saw crocus.

Today we wandered the downtown area and bought a few books at a book store. Had excellent Indian buffet for lunch.

Had a bit of sun yesterday and today. Off to Seattle tomorrow!
