Aug 2 - 8

An amazing week! In addition to a stellar group we had some off the charts weather. Massive thunderstorms and lightening moved in on Wed afternoon and by Wednesday evening it was pounding down rain. We had somewhere near an inch overnight and after a prolonged dry spell we have no more dust and the smells are from heaven. Chinese fogs have draped the landscape and this, after a pretty intense heat wave, has put us all in the best of humor. The Zeiter family (all five of them) have pegged "the most athletic family" meter to date and certainly a wonderful booking for Otter Bar in this rather slow year. They are off to Presido to Sandy Bar run as I write and Margarita night tonight promises to be the rocking blast it always is. Loved having Awna Z for a week and the Tommy/Bryan team blasted out another week of 4 star meals. THANKS for coming and leave some comments!


  1. Jeni Z checking in here - still reeling from our amazing and wonderfully fun week at Otter Bar. So many good memories and the perfect week trip for our family. Craig is still grinning from ear to ear. Looking at the pictures cracked us up - had no idea the whitewater fears I thought I kept well concealed inside were so apparent on the outside. Breathe baby breathe!! LOL. We will be back.....!

  2. Paul Zeiter here: What an incredible week on every level! The accomodations were perfect, so comfortable and relaxing.The food was off the hook,Bryan and Tommy you guys spoiled us with your culinary skills with each and every meal. The instruction was top notch, Peter is a master and I can still hear his voice saying... "how good was THAT ONE!" Sean and Kristen were also phenomenal with their skills and patience with us novice kayakers. Peter and Kristy, you have created a very special place and you have delivered memories that my family and I will keep for a lifetime. And I haven't even mentioned mexican night with margaritas and more fine dinning with the acoustic sounds from Rex and Miles. Does it get any better than this??? And of course Amanda's voice was a treat to listen to as well. For anyone considering the Otter Bar... don't think too long. It is an experience you don't want to miss! PZ
