And maybe some bullet points to go with them.
But I'm not promising anything.
We all went to the Bay area of California because last summer
this young woman, SK, picked up her life and moved there.
We celebrated Thanksgiving.
We were VERY thankful.
My sister, LD, and our daughter, E,
LOVE to cook (and look fetching in aprons!).
We pardoned a turkey this year,
and were VERY thankful for that too,
because a delayed flight meant E basically
hopped off a plane and started chopping vegetables.
For her famous
It was delicious!
The next day was San Francisco in turbo-drive. From Union Square for morning coffee, to lunch in the Mission District, to afternoon on the wharf and ice cream at (of course) Ghiradelli's, we traipsed all over the place. Watched the fog roll in over the Golden Gate, and saw a few beautiful Victorians. Yep, we may have only had a day, but we can be tourists with the best of them. And when the adults got tired, the younger ones kept going--back down to Union Square, up to the Fairmont and Nob Hill, just walking the Hills of the city because really, you can't take it all in.
So here, in no particular order, are a few shots from our one and only day out in San Francisco:
|Waiting for lunch at Mama Ji's Chinese Restaurant. Oh wow, how amazing that food was!|
|Victorians as far as the eye can see...I love the color palate of these houses,|
though they might NOT be authentic.
Happy Advent from us to you.
