Originally we were going to try for McClaren Park, the weekends are filled with 8 fields full of soccer players and watchers. But it's probably one of the most rules-laden places we've seen: no food, let alone bbq's, allowed on the pitches. No alternative good set-up. So we went to the soccer fields out at Beach Chalet Field in GGP, but very few people. Last place: Ocean Beach. Perfect, really. Not tons of people, but enough, plus sufers, and still a bit chilly even for a hot day like today so gumbo would be a good weather match. But we forgot one component of the bbq, so no go. Erik will do it tomorrow, Monday, on his own. I think it will be a good trial run. Will keep you posted...
