2011 Sea Ranch Day 3

Up fairly early, I ran down the coast in the opposite direction from yesterday. I covered some of the same ground that we hiked. I ended up covering a little more than 6 3/4 miles round trip. Although there is some interesting views, this part of the trail includes some more developed sections. Combined with the fact that I was sore, it was not quite as satisfying a run as Saturday. Sharon had driven the car and parked so that she and Jack could hike a different section of the trail. I came across them on my way back.

After breakfast, we went to Mass at Mary Star of the Sea in Gualala. The church sits up on the hillside above Gualala with an amazing view through the forest of the ocean.

Grabbing a few groceries after Mass, we headed back to the house to pick up our golf clubs. We spent the afternoon playing nine holes at the Sea Ranch Golf Links. Warming up on the driving range, I felt like I was hitting the ball pretty well. Unfortunately, this did not carry over to the course. I struggled. The front nine is pretty tough. It was also very soggy. I ended up with a very liberal winter rules 57. Sharon played pretty well and scored a 54. Jack started off well, but got frustrated the last couple of holes.

We stopped briefly at the Sea Ranch Chapel after golf and then headed back to the house. We finished the day playing scrabble (Jack won again!), watching the sunset from the hottub and grilling some steaks. After dinner, we watched a blu-ray version of Die Hard.
