We loaded up the minivan on Wednesday and drove 12 hours to San Francisco to visit Matt for Thanksgiving. This photo was taken in our hotel, The Sir Francis Drake. On Wednesday night we took a cable car to Fisherman's Wharf, had chowder in sourdough bowls, bought some salt water taffy and some goofy hats.
On Thursday morning we did the Turkey Trot Trail run at Golden Gate Park for charity. We had a delicious Thanksgiving meal at Campton Place. Then we took afternoon naps and went to the movies. It's always a challenge to select a movie that everyone wants to see, but we agreed on Red - and it was great!
On Black Friday we had pancakes at Sears Fine Food and then headed to Muir Woods and enjoyed the cool redwoods. Ahhhh.... Then we went to Berkeley, had lunch and shopped a little. I went to Castle in the Air. We did a little tour of Cal Berkeley - which is GORGEOUS - and stopped at a bike store. Most of the Kluvos just LOVE bike stores.... I waited in the car.
We returned to San Francisco had an early dinner at the hotel and headed out to the tree-lighting at Union Square. Couldn't resist stopping in Borders. Later Mandy Harper stopped by our hotel with two huge boxes of her famous vegan treats. We left at 5:00 on Saturday morning. Arrived safe and sound on Saturday evening. Everyone alive and mostly undamaged. We did have a couple of close calls though, especially during the car ride home... Happy Thanksgiving to all!
