san francisco

This past Tuesday and Wednesday we took a quick trip to San Franciscoblog - sf fwy sign to have dinner with our son, The Intrepid Traveler, and his wife, The Jersey Girl (also a world traveler). They’re both heading to Thailand for working vacations so we wanted to visit with them before they left.

The dinner, at Bobo’s, was also a combined belated birthday dinner for myself and Mr WS and, as always, it was wonderfThe World Traveler & The Jersey Girlul. Bagels for breakfast the next morning completed our visit. The kids took off for work and we wandered over to the Ferry Building to see if anything was open at 8 in the morning. A farmer’s market full of produce from local farmers was open and I ended up buying heirloom tomatoes, red pears and a jar of capers, all of which are organic. Outside the building we camblog - tomatoes, red pears & caperse upon a (seemingly) friendly seagull. I got within a foot of him, but didn’t press my luck and try to pet him even though I really wanted to. An hour later we were on our way back to the hotel to pack up and heaour seagull friendd home.

The trip home was the usual six hour drive through orchards, cotton fields, a very pungent cattle ranch and lots of barren hills.  A stop for pea soup for lunch was in order, followed by another stop where we fired up the GPS and discovered there was a geocache across the parking lot, so we grabbed it – #297 for us. A couple more stops for leg-stretching and… voila!… we’re back home. It’s always nice to be home.

The Intrepid Traveler left very early this morning for two weeks at Muay Thai training camp and The Jersey Girl leaves Thursday for a week working with rescued elephants. After their separate vacations they’ll spend a week enjoying the lush beauty of Thailand together. All the while Mr WS and I will be waiting for photos and updates about their trip. It’s great to live vicariously through our kids.

And now for some photos of our trip up Interstate 5 to San Francisco.

    I agree with Katie, love the photos. Some of my best sunset shots have been taken from the car!

      Thanks! (pay no attention to the huge delay in replying) We’re usually in too much of a hurry to pull over, get out and take the photo properly. And besides, through-the-window shots are the way we’re seeing it, so why not show it that way to others? Glad you liked them, too.

  2. I’m sorry, but I LOVE photos taken from cars. I don’t know what it is …maybe it’s the sky, the unique view through the windows…whatever it is, it’s the best. Great shots!

  3. Looks like it was some fun travel. Thx for sharing the photos 🙂
