Siscos and Ashes

The entire Foster-side clan came out from Kansas and Chicago and DC this week to give a fond farewell to Papa Bill. We took his ashes to sea with ALL of his (and Francie's) descendants on board! We were on the Papagallo II of Oceanic West, a family experience just as Papa Bill would have wanted, including some great times before and after the sea trip enjoying ourselves at various favorite places around the county. Trevor and Jen hosted us at Daou Winery. We followed that with dinner at one of our favorite restaurants, Novo. Following the boat trip the next day we had a quick, excellent lunch at Eureka Burger SLO (you've got to try their brussel sprouts!). Then off to the SLO Little Theatre to see Serafina in The Jungle Book (17 strong!). On our way to Olde Port Inn, an absolute favorite of Papa Bill's, we paused for some good times at Clesi Winery. For the first time ever, despite a number of historical attempts, we brought home an entire Butter Finger Pie from Olde Port. I'm sure Dad got a big kick out of that, though he would always have a dish of ice cream with chocolate syrup for himself.

All Jamie's pics are here. The Oceanic West folks also made an album with their own photos and some of Jamie's - it's here.
