Halfway through our holiday.

Weather glorious. We survived San Francisco, which was sooooooo foggy you couldn't see the Golden Gate Bridge until you were on it. Visited Japantown, Chinatown, Golden Gate Park, Fisherman's Whard, and saw the Samurai exhibition at the Asian Museum. Came close to getting mugged in the Tenderloin - we got (wrong) directions from our concierge.

The Mister's hip has eased a wee bit - we are going to investigate options for replacement when we get home.

The Nevada desert is just lovely - it's high desert, so plenty of water. We walk outside, and see blue skies, sagebrush, and the whole thing surrounded by mountains.

We went to Virginia City (Silver City) and I sent Uncle Tom a postcard with the Bucket of Blood saloon on it, I think he will get a kick out of that arriving at his nursing home.

I must say though, I really miss Mr14, horribly.

  1. This trip sounds great...well, near-mugging excepted. I'd love to see the Californian desert, especially the Mojave, for some reason.
