Cruise to Nowhere — Celebrating a friend’s 60th birthday on a group cruise was supposed to be a grand time. Unfortunately, rough seas and unrelenting rain kept us boat-bound for most of the trip. Once we were able to disembark, our first stop was Mission Brewery where our group celebrated and made new friends. Commiserating and celebrating over beer is the best way to build friendships.
