Skate Skiing on the Bike Path

It is so incredible…We can skate ski on a minute from our house on the bike path! 

And we can take Tuqui..who loves to meet like-minded dogs…

Just so beautiful…winter or summer

And then sometimes being “really smart” and getting the perfect parking place, doesn’t work as well as one would wish. 🙂

 

A Weekend in San Francisco! Sooo beautiful

So Angela and I took a long walk along the Embarcadero Saturday morning.

 

 

 

 

And Saturday night we went to a wonderful party hosted by Pancho and Barbro at the Presidio Yacht Club. It is right next to the Discovery Museum by Cavallo Point. What a funky wonderful location! We all wore jeans and cowboy attire. So nice NOT to dress up. The evening was crystal clear. To think we live in a city that people travel from all over the world to experience.

The next day we ran (actually drove) over to Cavallo Point for coffee with a few party goers…

 

Pancho & Tony…happy guys…

And then since it is MY BLOG, I get to give MY political opinions about change and inclusion.

I  don’t like confrontation and do not want to be anti-Reppublican but I do  want to keep moving forward. Seems like people want to keep things the same even if change would be an improvement.

A Blue Bird Day

was the perfect Sun Valley Day! Bright sunshine, deep blue sky, snow hanging on all the branches and perfect under foot (or ski as the case may be.) it was cold but not windy so we never got cold…and we were dressed for the coldest of days which might have helped.

And each year we take a photo on top of College. This is our 2012 photo – 6 years after coming here for the first time.

Skate Skiing on Football Day

We drove through town and every day I see something I want to photograph. Such beautiful old buildings. And I want to love them as long as they are around. I guess one day it will be more modern buildings and some of the old places that we love so much will have to change. But for now, I will just love it.

 

We skate skied on the Harriman Trail for the very first time…I know, I know, but we have been practicing at the SV Golf Club and Galena. Tuqui was in heaven! It was bitterly cold at 8 degrees so taking photos was a challenge!

 


We warmed up at Galena Lodge with a warm bowl of soup. And as usual I talked to so many wonderful people. One woman was remaking felt slippers for her husband, another was reading, and another had just come in from 2 1/2  hours of tramping down the snow on the snowshoe trails at Galena. Then we ran into Daphne Muehle who was up for a day of snowshoeing. It just does not get better.

A cool photo of Cate’s condo in SV! It is a gorgeous building. Who knows…she may live there one day. I highly doubt it as it is a long way from New York, but I would never have guessed she would have moved to New York!

Tuqui thinks she is queen of the mountain at Willow Run…

I hope I learn to figure out how to blog so that it shows up on the iPad beautifully!!!
