We've been off and on busy since the last post.
The garden is getting over grown with
tomatoes, peppers, zucchini, and cucumbers.
I should have taken a picture before posting this blog!
I've decided to try growing dahlias,
and they are beautiful!
I combined it with a couple of the roses
to make a nice bouquet.
with several different friends..
and the view always makes me smile.
George's birthday was Tuesday,
so we took a trip to San Francisco.
Since we had to take Cooper,
I found a dog friendly hotel,
We were upgraded to a 'city view' room,
which we laughed at.
Through the dusty window we could see
the fog enshrouded Transamerica building.
After we got checked in on Sunday afternoon,
we walked the few blocks down to Fisherman's Wharf..
a great Italian Seafood place called Cioppino's.
Sitting outside was nice, if a bit chilly.
Cooper was good, and ate a few bites of sourdough bread :-)
Cooper was enthralled by all the sights
and smells of the city.
There are some great views of the bay
from the pier.
As is usual, SF was foggy and chilly!
We had a view of the Golden Gate Bridge,
so we went to Boudin..home of the best sourdough!
I opted out of the bread, but got a wonderful
cup of clam chowder with a Caesar salad.
we decided a rest was in order.
Cooper was pooped from all the walking,
and I think that George was too!
we made our way to Ghirardelli square.
Always love that area!
On the way there,
we trudged uphill first to take
a look at Lombard street.
and in 1922 the residents decided to
change the steep hill into 8 hairpin turns.
Hydrangeas make it a beautiful street.
we made our way downhill to
we were all pooped then!
Tuesday was check out day,
so on our way out George
drove through the city a bit,
and down Lombard for good measure.
We really enjoyed our time there!
