The wonderful gift from our #1 son, David, was First Class American Airlines Tickets first to Phoenix on September 29th, and covered in the preceding post about my surprising a blog/fb friend, then from Phoenix to San Francisco on October 1st to visit our son.
On Tuesday Karin went to work and David, Mickey & I just hung around the condo and enjoyed each other and visiting. David, who travels all over the U.S. with his job, scheduled vacation time so he could be with us during these 5 days of our visit in San Francisco. That evening they have Indian food catered in. Different to our tastes but yummy. The four of us watched a Leo Gigglio tape How Great is Our God which we had brought with us.
Wednesday Karin took off at 2. David picked her up and we went sight seeing. Karin did all the driving in her Volkswagen, stick shift with power pack. She was an amazing driver, going up and down the packed, steep streets of traffic. She drove us down Lombard street, the famous crooked street, but I failed to get a picture.
The Coit Tower on Telegraph Hill. Mickey & I had been here on our RV travel trips.
A view of the skyline, on this overcast Wednesday, just before we began our decent.
Lovely, very expensive and lovely apartments & condo's all along the way down.
We drove up and down many street to find this Mel's Drive-in. Made famous from the firm American Graffiti.
Wonderful diner meals, we all choose something different and with my meetload dinner I had a yogart malt. A first for me, and it was very good.
Autographed items and pictures on the walls from the movie.
One of the places David for sure wanted us to see was this beautiful Grace Chapel.
Added unexpected treats of the day was they were setting up for The Americus Race and The Blue Angels were flying over us!!!
Then it was home where we enjoyed a shrimp platter, cheese & crackers & left over pizza. We watch a Bill Cloud dvd we had brought with us. Early to bed as we had to be at the airport early for our flight home.
There is MORE to this story, but since this post is so long I'm going to make a Part III of this wonderful gift, trip & adventure.
Thank you David for making our 54th a really special treat with this wonderful trip and visit.
