Cities that start with an “S”
January 26th, 2012
In mid-January I visited three cities that start with an “S” within a week’s time–San Diego, San Francisco, and Sausalito.
I went to San Diego for work a few weeks ago for an amazing (can you sense my sarcasm here?) three-day training at our San Diego campus. The best part of it all was that I was able to make a quick visit with my good friend Heather, her husband Steven, and their adorable pup Jack since they live so close to where I was staying. Heather picked me up after work and she made us an amazing vegetarian dinner which was enjoyed while telling stories about what’s going on in our lives (she’s a runner and a blogger too!) and commiserating over working at universities. 😉
The best part of the visit (just don’t tell Heather and Steven)?! Getting to spend some time with Jack! I met him a couple of years ago and he was just a little rascal then and it was great seeing him in person after following his blog for all this time. I didn’t realize how small he was, he always seems bigger in pictures (he’s just about the same size as Lola) and he is such a sweet dog! We’re hoping to get him and Lola together in the nearish future…they would have so much fun together!
Check out those ears! And yes, one of them is always folded over to the side…so cute!
Kevin’s mom Dorothy and his sister Judith came up the following weekend for a visit (and to be present at our 20 week ultrasound!) and we visited two cities that start with an “S” together. We were only in San Francisco for a couple of hours but those hours were well spent…we went to Zante’s for Indian pizza at the request of Judith who had never been there but heard such good things from my dad-in-law George. Even though I didn’t take any photos during our shotgun trip across the bridge I can confidently say that we made another Indian pizza convert out of an Edmonds! 🙂
The last city on our tour was Sausalito. We hadn’t been there since January two years prior when Kevin’s brother Thomas and our nephew Joshua came up for a visit so it was about time to make another trip up to Marin County to take a stroll along the coast. It turned out to be a gorgeous day and we thoroughly enjoyed our time out in the sun with the yummy and refreshing sea breeze.
Beautiful day in the Bay!
I have like 15 of these candid photos of Kevin…I should make a slideshow of them all, what do you think?? Hehe.
Kevin, Lola and a sea lion statue.
Judith, Dorothy and the San Francisco skyline in the background…it was such a clear day!
Lola spotted ’em first…she’s thinking “C’mon, Dad, let me at ’em!”…
Kevin, Judith and Dorothy trying to get a good look at ’em too…
What exactly were we looking at?
Relaxing in the sunshine
We ended the day getting some ice cream (or sherbert, if your name is Kevin) and eating it in the sunshine. Here’s a fun animated slideshow of Kevin and Lola…check out her eagle eyes on that sherbert of Kevin’s!
