The Kindness of Strangers (aka New Best Friends)

In our travels thus far, we –as did Blanche Dubois–have benefited from the kindness of strangers.  For example, Shani (a friend of our daughter Jean) put us in touch with her friend Jerry, who lined up moorage for us in Newport Beach.  Jerry’s wife Annie invited Lal on hikes, yoga on the beach, and to go paddle boarding.  Similarly, after mooring off of 11th Street on Balboa Peninsula and coming to the beach with our dinghy for almost two months we got to know Barbara and Steve Barnard.  After inviting them for cocktails on Elizabeth Jean, they reciprocated with a wonderful evening at the Newport Beach Yacht Club.  There we enjoyed cocktails, the buffet, and a dazzling presentation by the crew of the Astor on the Fife Regatta.  For an account of the Newport Beach Fife Regatta see our previous December 22 post.  We are learning that strangers are just new best friends in disguise.  We look forward to paying forward these many kindnesses as we proceed and look forward to meeting more new best friends.
