Other than a slight delay in Dallas, our trip was uneventful....just the way we like them!
UPDATE: One of the kind blog readers has clued me into the fact that referring to the city by the bay as Frisco is considered a faux pas. My humblest apologies. No slight was intended in any way. It had more to do with artistic interpretation than language.
Hello, California! Finally, we're here!
Whenever I do one of these scouting trips, I always think I'm going to have plenty of time and I might even get bored. Silly girl! Not likely with a town like San Francisco.
I won't bore you with the details of having to learn to use CA's transportation system, getting stuck in the terminal while trying to get out or of going up the wrong (STEEP) hill to our cottage that nearly (but not quite) did us in.
Anyway, three things became very evident in short order—dogs everywhere; beautiful, gorgeous things blooming everywhere and cut flowers were available at every corner market!
You'll be hearing and see more about all of these as the story continues.
On our last night in town, we actually got to meet Chip in person and he couldn't have been any sweeter if he'd tried. And he really was that small in that big glass window.
Next up...a lesson learned from stopping in front of street maps, a trip to Chinatown and Fisherman's Wharf!
