A TriP FrOm MaY

Like most things in my life, this post is upside-down. Scroll to the bottom and work your way up. Or, enjoy our trip from end to beginning.

We had a spectacular time.

Finishing out our trip, we went to Fisherman's Wharf. So much to see and so many good things to eat. My kind of place.

One of the most interesting things I have ever done is the tour of Alcatraz. Next time you are in the Bay Area, go.

Then to a Giants game. It was Willie Mays' 80th birthday, and we were able to meet up with my favorite uncle and aunt (huge Giants fans!) We nearly froze to death and left early because the Giants were losing. Of course they came back to win it in the 9th.

Back up to Yosemite and hiking to waterfalls. I can't believe how beautiful it was.

We drove down to San Francisco and went to Golden Gate Park and the California Academy of Sciences. Very Cool.

Our trip started at the Winchester Mansion in San Jose. If you can't visit, you should definitely look it up on line. Wow!

We (through the generosity of Tiff) were able to go to California in the spring.
I finally figured out how to download pictures from Dave's camera - so here are a few..

Oh, We love San Francisco...we did our Honeymoon there. We were debating on wether to do there or do San Diego and the kids obviously won this one. I think we will go there next time though. We froze to death at the Giants game too and it was in July when we went. Looks like you guys had fun.
