Ashlee's 40th birthday was on the horizon and to celebrate, we headed out to San Francisco and other parts of Northern California for week of fun with a gaggle of our friends from all over the place for different amounts of time throughout:
Saturday, Sept. 1 - We flew out of Nashville with a pretty good fare to San Francisco on Frontier Airlines with our friend, Brenda. Meeting us at the San Fran airport were our friends, Mike from Chattanooga, and Amy and Jeremy from New Hampshire. Arriving before all of us was our friend, Rex from Atlanta. Our friend, Wayne, who is also from Nashville would arrive late the next day to complete our eightsome (sp?) after running a half marathon in Virginia Beach (impressive!).
|The upstairs view from the 4-bedroom house we rented was nice.|
|The fog that San Fran is famous for found us on our first morning there.|
|On our way to our food tour we stopped in Alamo Park |
for a great view of "The Painted Sisters" row houses
and downtown behind them. Remember this shot from
the TV show, "Full House"?
|The Day One Group huddling in a neat sculpture garden before our food tour.|
|An $80 box of chocolates from the Christopher Elbow Shop, one of the 7 stops on our gourmet food tour.|
|You don't really have to "search" to find Google Street in tiny Mountain View, CA|
|The whole gang from L to R - Ashlee, Rex, Brenda, Wayne, Mike, me, Amy and Jeremy.|
Thanks for all the fun and laughs everyone and Happy Birthday, Ashlee!!
