such fun..and a new find...

so - yesterday we played pacific dunes...an absolutely gorgeous track...ocean views on almost every hole - some right on the coast - some within sight...davey finally broke 80- i think he shot a 78 and i shot an 84...pretty good for some walking oldies...although our caddie jeff told us about a couple in their mid-eighties who played 36 a day and carried their bags...don't know if he was telling us this just to fire us up??..anyway...our bartender alex, pictured above, has given us some great touts...alloro being the first and then he told us it was worth the drive to the western-most part of the continental US - port orford, a town of 1150....  probably a 50 minute drive last night to a place called "redfish"...the view was spectacular and never comes across in photos!! - but the food!!! - we had the most delicous crabcakes prepared with watermelon radish and cucumber relish with chili ad garlic aioli, fantastic bread! - wonderful green salad with goat cheese and the most delectable shinook salmon, freshly caught from the rivers near by - can't find anything like it in indiana, i tell you what!!!...served on a bed of couscous...i couldn't have alot of wine since i had to drive home but they let us take it home with us so we could have a drink with alex.  today, it looked like rain so we ventured out to the par three, the preserve - a gorgeous 13 hole track where we carried our clubs in a pared down quiver bag...- greens super slow and davey was 2 over and i was 3 over - we probably would've both been under par except we could not get the ball to the hole!!!! - cancelled our afternoon round - looks too iffy - venturing back to bandon for lunch at the wheelhouse - relaxing and packing and home tomorrow - it's been grand!!! - almost back to the real world!!!
