California Vacation

So I can't even remember if I brought this up,  but Dick and I took a long weekend vacation to California a couple weeks ago.  Grandma was available to watch little Richard and we headed off to Sacramento.  We have a friend who lives there and was willing to take us in, care for us and drive us around!  We got in Thursday night and woke up Friday and headed to San Francisco.
Making our way into San Fran we stopped for a quick picture.




First stop was the Golden Gate Bridge and it was a beautiful day for photos!

Naturally there is a picture of me out there taking a picture.





Golden Gate Selfie.

Battery Spencer - Built in 1878 to guard to bridge.



Then we hiked the Twin Peaks overlooking San Francisco!



We thought a good idea to run up one of them.  Bad idea!

Then we drove to the Pacific.

It was beautiful.  We found sand dollars and...

Dick found this crab.

Dinner?  No just kidding.

Drove down Highway One and stopped for Gelato!


and Dick bought the largest slice of pizza I have ever seen.
There are a few missing stops because I took some photos on my iPhone, but we stopped to see the Full House house and went out for dinner at a Spicy Cajun Asian Restaurant called Swamp.

Saturday we spent the day getting addicted to "Breaking Bad" and rested.  It was a wonderful getaway and we were so thankful to our friend Carly for taking us in!

Isn't San Fran the best?! Glad you guys were able to get away just you two! And Breaking Bad will suck you in and won't let you go. It's amazing.
