San Francisco is a beautiful as ever . . . and I have my eReader along for the ride!

Can't even imagine what it would be like to go somewhere without the ole eReader. I got all fixed up with a new crop of ebooks and I should be set for a few days at least. At first the old hubby was a little puzzled about the blogging thing and writing reviews and such, but I think he is beginning to realize that it is something that I find enjoyable and something of a challenge. So now he is asking more about the books and " . . . which one are you reviewing now??"

We are driving up and down the beautiful hills and dales of San Fran -- the Golden Gate Park with the Japanese Tea Garden is absolutely beautiful!! One cannot even describe the beauty of the Japanese Cherry Blossoms this time of year. The floral clock has been redone from when I was a kid and visiting with my grandparents, but it is just as beautiful now as then. We are on our way to the Muir Woods Redwoods -- some of those trees are over 1,000 years old. It is humbling, to say the least. Wish all of you could be with us! Tomorrow we wind our way home down Highway 101 -- El Camino Real, or the King's Highway. We'll drive through ancients stands of eucalyptus trees, pass by some of those wonderful old Spanish missions, glimpse the ocean from time to time, and start inland when we reach Ventura. For me it is a trip down memory lane; for our granddaughter I hope it will be a new and cherished memory. Until next time . . .
