October Around The Bay
Is it really already Halloween? Where did October go?
I’ve been so busy I haven’t had time to blog. So here is a little month in review via photos.
The best thing about working in San Francisco is the never ending options of places to eat. I think I could eat at a different restaurant every single day and after a year still not have tried all the restaurants within walking distance to my new office.
One day while waiting for the ferry, a friend and I decided to try Sinbad’s. I’d describe Sinbad’s as a dive bar with an amazing view! It is located right next to the ferry building, on the bay, with a view of the Bay Bridge. Their dining room kind of resembles a green house.
After Sinbad’s we went to MarketBar which is located at the front of the Ferry Building.
After eating those delicious appetizers I took the ferry home. Celia picked me up at the ferry building and drove me to the bus stop where I had left my mini van that morning. When we pulled in to the parking lot I did not see my mini van. I thought someone had stolen it. Celia pulled right behind a brand new Toyota Yaris and said Happy Birthday! She surprised me with a brand new Toyota Yaris! I love my new car! For those of you who remember the Mini saga and are wondering why she didn’t get me the Mini… I changed my mind and decided the Yaris was a much better buy.
For lunch one day I tried one of the little alley way cafes. Cafe Venue is located on Leidesdorf & California Streets. I had a delicious Turkey Cranberry sandwich. It was a chilly San Francisco day but where Cafe Venue is located there was a little warm spot of sunshine and the buildings protected me from the wind.
That afternoon at our daughter’s volley ball game we ran into a nun (Sister Marion) dressed as Elvis. This is a pretty amazing nun. “In 1983 she qualified for the U.S. Olympic Trials in the marathon, at age 54, by running 2 hours, 51 minutes, 1 second at the California International Marathon in Sacramento. She shattered all major running records in the 50-54, 55-59 and 60-64 age groups, earning a five-year sponsorship by Nike and competing in track events in Australia, Canada, Finland and Switzerland.” –MarinIJ
And this weekend I’ve been taking care of my poor doggy who has a bad hot spot. 🙁
