After lunch, we got checked in at the Sequel. David, the owner, had booked us into the Eagle's Roost suite, which had recently been redone. The first thing William saw was the massage chair in the corner. He didn't get any further before trying it out. I, however, wanted to check out the jacuzzi in the bedroom. It was huge! It was the first jacuzzi I've see that was big enough for two plus-size people, like me and my husband, at the same time.
After unpacking our things, we walked over to my in-law's cottage they were renting. It was also owned by David and my in-laws had rented the same cottage several years in a row over the 4th of July weekend. We mixed up some tinto (a Spanish wine and lemon soda concoction) and socialized for a few hours, then we decided to read a bit and take a nap before dinner.
Dinner was a ton of mussels and dungeness crab with a nice salad. The crab was ok, but the mussels were my favorite, having been cooked in a mixture of sea water, wine and garlic.
After dinner, William and I decided to try out the jacuzzi. Afterward, we read while half watching the pre-4th fireworks. Some people were having a grand time shooting them off while drinking beer, which ended when the sheriff stopped to give them a warning. Others wouldn't be so lucky the next night.
