The Obester's Annual Whale-Watching
& Pizza Party
Despite predictions from the meteorological prognosticators of gloomy, rainy,
stormy weather, we found the climate out on the coast to be absolutely perfect!
The weather was clear and sunny with a cool breeze blowing off the water.
There was a lot of food waiting for the guests...
These little "wraps" were dangerously addictive, featuring
smoked duck and mandarin oranges.
Meanwhile, in the kitchen, the pizza-making supplies were at the ready!
Paul, who appears a bit sleepy, took care of opening some jugs of ancient
Lots of young, fresh, "pizza wines" were also available.
The guests began to arrive and in no time, the place was crawling with thirsty
and hungry visitors, all hoping to catch a glimpse of Jonah and some whales.
Maria, Marjorie and Cliff had front row seats!
It wasn't long before platters of food needed refilling!
Sandy explains to some guests the protocol of whale watching.
"They're kind of big and they're out in the water..."
Marjorie and Maria.
Jesper brought a new "toy" for Paul and his pizza oven...a broom!
Out watching for seafood and maybe even a whale or two was a group of guests.
As soon as Frank heard there was seafood out there, he was up and out of his
chair to have a look.
Meanwhile, back in the sauna, Sandy recalled her techniques in pouring wine from
her Obester Winery tasting room days!
She had not lost her touch, not spilling a drop.
Bob, just back from Europe, showed everyone his photos from the journey.
Paul had not lost his wonderful recipe for "Albondigas" and did
several laps around the rooms offering them to anyone who needed to burn the
hell out of their palate.
(These were great, by the way!!)
Jonathan & Lucy.
The food table was constantly "under attack"!!
Marjorie and Maria...
Paul "sold" a lot of those little meatballs!
Let's make some pizza!!
