Mike's Lung Cancer Chronicle

Half Moon Bay R&R

We (Nurse Susan and me) celebrated our 28th Wedding Anniversary by running off to Half Moon Bay and getting some much needed “Rest & Recreation.”  We left the cancer at home and decided to just have some fun before starting chemo cycle 2 on Monday. Right after we arrived at the Miramar Beach Restaurant for lunch, the sun broke through and burned off the fog.  After  lunch we had a nice walk on the beach before we checked into our ocean view penthouse, (we went all out!) at the Beach House Inn.  Dinner was tip-top at Cetrella on Main Street, HMB (highly recommended).

View from our penthouse at the Beach House.

This weekend was just about the sun, the sand, the surf, the food, the sunny stroll on Saturday afternoon, the foggy power walk on Sunday morning.  Oh, and it was about us, me and Nurse Susan — 28 years and looking forward to the next 28.

Sounds like you have a wonderful 28th. Not sure you can celebrate the next 28th on the beach. I’d like to celebrate that one with you but at almost 90 I would appreciate solid ground. XXO
