Well I have to say we had a wonderful time. Stayed a bit longer than last year, and plan on going again. Must be our "getaway" spot.:D

We got to explore places we didn't go to last time. We made a trip to Alcatraz. I was amazed at how small the cells really were. You get to have an audio tour. They hand you headphones and some radio thing and listen to everything. That was fun.

We spent some time in Chinatown. Not as much as last year since we were there most of the time last time! But I did buy a few things for Jhanai. She'll love them. And if not I will!:D

Around the corner from our hotel were a lot of eateries. There was a diner called "Betty Boop's diner" They had a gal dressed up as Betty standing out there inviting people in. (got a photo of that)

We walked a long distance and found this area near the Exploratorium. It was closed by the time we got there but the outside had some beautiful statues and collums and such.

We just had fun. It was away from stressful work. Away from cleaning house.:D And just away so we could be together. Truly enjoyed it. Can't wait to go again!

Here are some photos:

Yep, you both look great, Marti - so happy!

Btw, ladies, I've talked to James on the phone, and his voice is just as hunky as he is.
