First week in San Francisco
We have been here over a week already. We worked with Emily on their apartment, sanding and plastering the hall so it can be painted and Steve kept us fed. We walked around Pacifica and spent time down at the pier and at one of our favorite coffee stops the Chit Chat Cafe. All of us went to our traditional Vietnamese restaurant and walked around the the side streets of San Francisco visiting cool stores including coffee, ice cream, and donut shops. We are enjoying using Steve's BMW while we are here. We checked out the nursery that Dan and Carmen fixed up and we are waiting with great anticipation for the arrival of our first grandchild. On fridays we all got together for pizza and a movie. I replaced the ignition switch and a defective diode that was buried deep under the dash so now the Beast is whole again. That sums up the first twelve days of our stay here. We are well and enjoying the good weather, the sea breeze, and the great sunsets and being with our kids.
