They Came, They Saw, They McNavigated

The Rand McNally team tasked with appointing which town in America is "Most Beautiful" left Pacifica with a bang at Nick's.

Dan and JoAnne Schaub, known as the McNavigators, were given the task of helping to decide which town in America is by USA Today/Rand McNally, and they left Pacifica, one of the finalists in that competition, in high spirits. 

On Tuesday night they were at Nick's, being wined and dined after a foray through Pacifica's beauty. 

They caught a party at the Castle with wine provided by , saw the , ,a surfing lesson at , a massage at , and much more. 

Although the couple won't directly decide which town they visited along the way is "Most Beautiful" - including Coral Gabes, FL and Sand Point, ID - their journals and photos taken along the trip will contribute to the Rand McNally judges' decision. 

The of the competition will be announced next week.

do you know if they were here on a sunny day, or only foggy days?

Frances, it was yesterday that they were here, 7/12, so if you don't live here, I can tell you it was overcast with driizzle...all day :( But hopefully they imagined how wonderful it would look if it were sunny.

Nice pics Camden. If I would have known they were going to be at Nicks I would have stopped by, looked like it went well. I'll cross my fingers.

Dan and Joanne were here on Monday and Tuesday, sadly while the bay area is encased in drizzle and low temperatures. Regardless, they were graciously wonderful about being out and spent time at the Grace McCarthy Vista Point Overlook, Chit Chat Manor, a session of gentle yoga at Ocean Yoga, Pier, Sharp Park Golf Course, ate BBQ from Gorilla on Roberts Road, zipping along on Segways, Frontierland Park, San Pedro Valley Park, Pacifica State Beach, Pedro Point, lunch at High Tide, Dollaradio, Vallemar (including coffee and hot chocolate from P-Town Cafe) and Sea Bowl to name a few of their other activities.

Many thanks to Marlies Tallman for digging her Lotus Flower sculpture out of storage and getting it working to enhance the ocean, sky and drizzle of our waterfront at Nicks....

Marlies' Lotus Flower is indeed a remarkable piece that lent an exciting element to the scene (when our lovely sunsets hid behind the clouds).

I was sorry that the weather didn't co-operate with the McNavigators' visit, but fog and drizzle can be beautiful too. Right? And wonderful pictures! The Lotus Flower is spectacular. I would love to see it in person. Will there be another showing/demonstration?
