Settler

Well, yes.  That’s what i feel like.   The move went splendidly, not a single hitch, and now i’m settling in and discovering more and more nice features of my new apartment…and developing workarounds for the other stuff.

Unpacking continues apace, and i’ve found all the critical stuff like my meds, my toothbrush, and my coffeemaker, grinder, and cup.  Not to mention a bar of Guittard bittersweet chocolate so i can make my hot chocolate reward on days when i’ve kept the carbs down.

The movers recommended a fish and chips place called Fourth and Sea after its location at the corner of 4th Street and C Street, so i had the fish and chips dinner with cole slaw and a chocolate milk shake my first night in town.  OMG!  Everything was utterly delicious, both fish and chips being better than the ones at Woodhouse in SF, better than any i recall having in recent years.

It was so good that i swung by the next day and had just a single piece of fish for lunch.   And then dropped in at suppertime for another piece of fish.

Afterwards went to McNear’s on Petaluma Blvd (the main drag) for their wifi connection and a local beer called Porterluma.  Yep, a quite tasty porter, especially if you like porters.

Here’s Fourth and Sea

Oh, and i lied when i wrote that my apartment is a hundred yards from the Petaluma River.  I’d estimated that from glancing at a map.  Went out and checked and discovered it’s only 25 yards away.   Yow.  Checked at Target and they were out of sandbags.

Meanwhile, since i have to be crossing the Petaluma River several times a day, here’s a shot of the little pedestrian bridge at the foot of B Street.

Aargh.  I seriously misidentified that bridge and describe it properly in a later post.
