Norcal Trips ( San Francisco, Antioch, and Cambria)
The last 2 years (and probably the next few) Jan and I travel up north to visit my Dad, Brother Dave, and Matt. On our first trip we drove up Dad and Pat's in Cambria stopping at Salinas on the way up. Next it was off to Dave's in Antioch for a day. The last leg of the trip is to Matt's in San Francisco. WE took our time on the drive back stopping at Shell Beach and Santa Monica.
It is always nice to see Dad. We took the normal hike on the coast and saw some sea lions along the cliffs. spent most of the time chatting and catching up on the latest news.
It was great visiting Dave and his kids. Shawn and Dave's new house is beautiful ( and huge). We played with the kids most of the day and all went out for Chinese buffet for dinner.
Matt and Nili have a great apartment in Noe Valley overlooking the Castro area. We spent the day hiking around the neighborhood, visiting Delores Park, the Castro, and downtown for lunch at a great Deli. The next evening we all went down to the waterfront district for dinner at Mamacitas. Gareth joined us and we all had a great time.
