Along the Coast

A lovely sunny day (finally) for a visit to the coast. Here I am driving on 92 to Half Moon Bay. The kind of day when you want to drive with the convertable top down and feel the wind in your hair except of course, I drive a Toyota Corolla.

I've arrived, happy and all smiles.

Princeton by the Sea, in the distance. People wanted to talk to me. An elderly gentleman closed my car door for me.

Along Pillar Point. A surfer boy stopped to talk to me. Oh my God, I can't believe I giggled like a schoolgirl. Wet suit -- it does a body good.

A long time ago, a wasp stung the bottom of my foot here.

Above, Fitzgerald Marine area. I couldn't find the tide pools.

I took a lot of photos and it was hard choosing which ones to post.

Tomorrow, the rain may return, so, I'm thinking a day at the Cantor Arts Center at Stanford University viewing Durer to Picasso among other exhibits will do nicely.

2 Days Before Christmas

One of my favorite scenes during the holiday season is a block of Victorian offices in downtown San Jose; each year, brilliantly lit.

A scene inside the House of Siam, a lovely Thai restaurant in downtown San Jose. FYI, my brother was born in Thailand.

The pink duck is a gift from The Boyfriend. It flashes a variety of colors. Another toy for bath time!

A Whirlwind Weekend

The Boyfriend returned home after being abroad for several weeks in countries with little sunshine. We spent the weekend in Pacific Grove biking 17 Mile Drive, Highway 1 and Pt. Lobos State Park, among other things....
