A Week in SF

It's hard to say goodbye to old friends. We left all things familiar to us almost 2 years ago (my goodness, time flies by). So it is always a blessing and joy (I do get a little giddy) when those friends take a trip out to see us.

Our good friend Josh was here this past week to see us and a few other friends. And it just so happened that Chris had the week off of work (not by choice). This week of unpaid time off would have been a huge disappointment if it hadn't been for Josh's visit. The timing of it all was just so perfect--Chris could spend the entire week hanging out and being Josh's tour guide.

On Thursday night after work we all went to the California Academy of Sciences. Chris and I love going to their "Night Life" when we have guests. They have music going, dim the lights, and serve cocktails! There is no better way to see a museum! They have a really cool aquarium too but I don't have photos of that.

On Friday we tried something new. We went to "Off the Grid" for dinner. Food trucks gather to form their very own food court in the middle of a parking lot. Take your pick from Mexican, Korean, Indian, Filipino, Chinese, Thai, and plenty of others.

This is a sandwich with waffles for the bread -- strange but delicious!

We took a little walk out on a pier and saw the sun set -- just beautiful.

We all had a great time together. There is nothing quite like reconnecting face to face. Josh -- thanks for visiting SF -- come back soon!
