With airports the way they are these days, it is really quicker to jump in the car and drive to San Francisco. We did that last Thursday. We left a foggy home and headed up the coast, stopping for lunch in Santa Barbara. The beaches were still fogged in there as well.
|Lunch was on the pier with the mountains slowly clearing of the fog.
San Francisco was quite cool - and foggy - which is fairly typical. It was rather nice for us as we all enjoy doing a lot of walking and those hills can be a real workout. The cool temps were a nice relief. We walked for miles each day and enjoyed all of the sights and foods of San Francisco.

|This was the hill that almost killed us all. It was so steep that they even added stairs.

The hotel was gorgeous and a welcomed sight at the end of each day.

|Fresh flowers each day - GORGEOUS!!!!
On Monday, our #3 son and his wife left for a week in Hawaii so we have had special grandchildren time. Needless to say, it has been a busy week. Of course the first day we had a slight accident when one of the boys fell out of a tree and broke both bones in his lower arm.
We have also managed to be quite productive. We even got nine batches of jam done which will probably last about one month with the number of sandwiches made for lunches!!!!

Needless to say, there has not been a lot of sewing going on except in the wee hours of the morning. I did manage to finish my next two rows of the Rockin' Robin, but other than a little car sewing, that was it. Next week is a new week!!!
