Golf–Pacific Harbor–March 15, 2014

It’s been pretty rainy and overcast for the last few days.  A cyclone named Lusi threatened to get us last week, but swung off to the west and missed us completely.  And today was one of the first blue sky days we have had in a long time.

We took the opportunity to play a little golf out at Pacific Harbor with the Peterson’s.  And with the sun comes the heat.  It was very hot and humid.  We had to rent everything from the cart to the clubs and we bought 8 balls.  It rained in Pacific Harbor last night and the course was one large bog, but fun.

By the second hole we were down by two balls, and we decided we would play until we ran out of balls or finished the 9 holes, which ever came first.  We made it to the end of the 9 holes with two balls remaining – pretty amazing when you consider how easy it is to lose balls even in what looks like short grass.

And there were a millions of little froggies all over the course.  As I putted on one hole there were three standing guard over my ball and they never even flinched when I hit it. 

No scores were kept – just how many balls we finished the game with.

Lunch followed at Baca Blues café and then we headed home.  It was hot!  Did I mention it was HOT?  90 degrees and about the same amount of humidity.  We dressed in long pants because there is a Dengue fever epidemic here and we didn’t want mosquito bites, and by the time we finished we were all dripping wet, next time we will take a chance on the mosquitos.  But we enjoyed it a ton.  It was nice to know we can still swing a club.
