One good part of California is people visit. The Matt Scott entourage came this past weekend. Yes, it was a surprise.
Matt, for those just joining us, is a meteorologist at Fox61. We worked together at WTNH. I’ve known him better than fifteen years. Where have I gone wrong?
“Don’t tell Geoff,” Matt told Helaine. Then he changed the permissions on his Facebook page so I’d stop seeing his posts.
All Helaine would say was we were going out to brunch in Huntington Beach. It was all very puzzling.
We headed to Duke’s, just south of the pier on the ocean in Huntington Beach. If you’re going to Surf City you might as well go to a surfer’s restaurant.
Matt came with his girlfriend Shelley and his two children, Cameron and Brendan. They came for the weekend. We were on the itinerary right after a behind-the-scenes tour at The Price Is Right.
Swimmin’ pools. Movie stars.
-PAUSE- Just for a second.
We’re sitting at Duke’s when their strolling ukulele player walked up to our table, pointed and said he recognized Helaine! He then went on to sing her praises as a poker player, saying if she bets he folds.
She’s a very good player. It was quite the testimonial.
OK… back to the blog.
The food at Duke’s was great. It’s a well stocked brunch buffet with an ocean view. Tough to go wrong.
Matt’s children continue to be adorable and very well behaved. They especially enjoyed walking in the sand on the mainly deserted beach.
I know we’re way out on the left coast, but all roads lead to California.
