The Holidays 2019, Part Six

December 20 – January 7 The next day, Saturday, Joanna and Mary went into San Francisco for the last day of an exhibit at the de Yong Museum on Contemporary Muslim Fashions, and I bade farewell to Norm to head back to Oakland.  By early afternoon Jessica, Kris and I were ready for some refreshments […]

The Holidays 2019, Part Four

December 20 – January 7 We left the condo late in the morning and not sure about what we’d be doing later in the day food wise, made a stop at, yes, Juanitas to get that Carnitas burrito that had been eluding us.  We would split it, providing just the right amount of ballast in […]

July 26 – 29 As planned, we set out the next morning on the bikes ready to explore as much of this bike friendly city as we could.  Heading north on the bike path two blocks away from the house to just shy of Burrard Bridge, then left along the shoreline all the way out […]

West Coast Spring 2018 – Vancouver, Part One

July 26 – 29 The ferry for Anacortes was due to leave around 11am, which gave us time to break camp and get to the terminal a little early to make sure we were in line to board, thinking there’d be a place nearby where we could grab some coffee and food while killing time […]
