Sunny California

At the end of April Phil, Bridget, and I visited Nick in San Francisco. We had a great time! Nick certainly took us to see everything and made us eat so much that we didn't get hungry until about two days after we returned home.

First we visited his office. Across the way there is a rather anti-aesthetic fountain, but fascinating nonetheless. A sort of suspended walkway goes along a couple of inches below the water level, and Bridget explored this while we waited for Nick and Phil to finish their respective work-related activities. We also checked out the Ferry Building and walked around a bunch.


















Later we had a great Chinese dinner where we met Natasha, and then we headed for the Giants game. It was cold at the park, but what a fun place. The bleachers there were jumpin', with fans who kept things interesting with some intense heckling. At one point a park official actually sat down, in the friendliest way possible, next to one guy and talked him into a better place, spiritually.

I admit that Nick is making a funny face here...

















...and here...really funny! Look how sweet that field is!

















The next day we went to the beach. The weather could not have been more warm, breezy, and sunny. Here we are at a somewhat understatedly designated scenic overlook:





More to come in the next post.
