What a treat!
Valerie got tickets from a co-worker for a city lights cruise on the USS Potomac from 4:30 pm to 6:30 pm. We enjoyed every minute, and when the sun set it was quite a spectacle. It was followed by the city scape of San Francisco with lights everywhere, in all the buildings, and, of course, those marvelous bridges. And let us not forget the sky, and the crescent moon…
If I sound awestruck it is because that is how I felt.
We are so lucky to be able to enjoy all that Mother Nature and the San Francisco Bay have to offer, especially since the sun continues to shine on us every day. The weather allowed us to enjoy this cruise, and Guido was happier than I have ever seen him recently.
As we commented afterwards, this was quite a treat. Now we have to wait until the big ships come out of hibernation (dry dock for maintenance) and we’ll be ready for more!
This was followed by dinner at a restaurant here in San Rafael. We are so lucky that our house is close to everything – downtown, doctors, restaurants. And this one had the best food we’ve had in some time, as well as exceptionally good waiters. When I asked where they got the arugula, as it was so good, the Chef himself came to or table to tell me. And Valerie and Creg were in stitches when they realized I was flirting with the Chef…(I had only one glass of wine, but he was so cute…)
All in all, it was a wonderful day, and I slept the sleep of the just, something that had not happened in some time.
Obviously, I need more of this, even though I was afraid I would not be able to endure so much. I did, and I am very happy about it!
