On the road

The historic St. Francis Hotel  in foreground
I woke up in downtown San Francisco this morning. Here's the view from our room.

This trip has been in the works for quite a while, but I've been flat out with my grandkids and sewing and pretty much ignoring this trip until Sunday night, when I had to pack.  An easy flight to Oakland and a BART ride to the city yesterday, and we're here (I met Roger at the airport in Oakland...he had just flown in from NM).

I'd like to tell you about all the great tourist things I did today, but frankly, other than breakfast in the hotel dining room, I slept a large portion of the day.  We're headed out soon to chase down some old memories in places we used to haunt, back in the day.

Tomorrow I'm walking over to Britex to check out their fabrics.  After all these years and countless visits, I have never ever let myself walk in the doors of this legendary institution.  Stay tuned.

Oh Martie........how I wish I knew beforehand, that you were going to the city of my birth. SF is the most magical place. Wish I would have been a stowaway in your suitcase and I would have kept you giggling so much, you would not have wanted to sleep!

I am actually jealous that I did not get to go. :-)

I have only been to San Francisco once but it was wonderful. I can't wait to go back someday. I am glad you are enjoying your time there!
