San Francisco

For more San Fran pics; check out the following link:
We met up w/ Jenny's brother, Arthur for a night of festivities! Trekking down town in the financial district of San Fran.

Dinner (mid-afternoon) w/ our 'rip-off of a quasi -tour guide' at an Irish pub.

Discussing where to next..? Our new acquaintance mentioned that he worked for Sephora (and, no he didn't have any free make-up handouts) but would gladly give us a tour around the town. We all met up on the ferry.

Breakfast at our little B&B. The owners were so friendly and had a piano that we even entertained ourselves with music and singing (okay, the singing may not have been that great :D )


Being vet...
Evening out and about...
Jessie's crazy, drunk cat!

Jessie taking care of and being vet to the horses on the ranch she worked for in TX.
Dinner was great, wine, olives, cheeses of sorts - choc. for dessert (what more can you ask for)?

Don't ask - excited to get out of the vehicle on our little road-trip.

After a toast to 'good times'!

San Diego

Some shopping in La Jolla... Evening out in the Gaslamp district...

At the 'Living Room' in La Jolla for an afternoon dessert and coffee!

La Jolla coastline..beautiful.

Closer towards evening..such a pastel blend of complementing colors.

Viewing our companion balloon through the evening sky.
Overlooking west coast once taking off from Del Mar. So, quiet and calm once into the atmosphere. View over much of the real-estate and Rancho Santa Fe area.

Increasing the altitude - our guide was interesting and explained much of the maneuvering capabilities of the balloon (all dependent on directional wind/ground speed, of course).

Before taking off.

Deb, Sheena and myself hangin' out in San Diego.
At Hotel Del Coronado.

Sunset in SD.

Catching a biker on the way down while hiking the Torrey Pines trails...

View from Torrey Pines highest point (overlooks Del Mar).
