Where do I start? It's been an awesome trip so far. Everything has gone wonderfully. We LOVE it here! It's strange how homey the US feels. Europe felt foreign and even England too but the US...ahhh...I wanted to dislike it but can't.
The weather today was awesome. We drove north to Point Reyes for freshly shucked oysters at Drakes Oyster Farm. It was a mad drive on snakey Highway 1 to get to the farm before it closed at 4:30 pm. We had spent too much time taking photos of the Golden Gate Bridge. The sky was blue and there was no fog; just perfect if not a little bit too glaring because the sun at 2 to 3 pm was high up in the sky. We raced down the dirt road and nearly slammed into the oyster shack, the clock reading 4:23 pm. However, Yi got sick and threw up so she couldn't eat (but did manage to swallow two oysters later). CY, my uni roomie, was such a sweetheart to drive us more than 2 hours up just for a dozen oysters! On the way back we had more oysters and clams at a restaurant n the food was SO GOOD. It was a rush back to the city again because Yi had a dinner. She's having such a great time I don't know if she can settle down when she goes back to work.
A few days ago, we were so thrilled to be shown around Pixar. We were allowed to take photos of most of the office buildings and grounds but were told not to post photos taken inside the buildings. I wish I can show you where the animation is done and other cool stuff. I saw this glass case of Oscar statues and other awards and realized that that was the closest I will ever get to a real OScar statue. We went crazy buying caps and t shirts and Pixar stuff, all of which are not sold outside.
I need to snooze. Am not familiar with the laptop and certain programs so it takes too long to upload photos. Hub just arrived back to KK and I bet he wishes he's here. Yi goes to LA tomorrow and I stay put in SF because LA is last on my list of cities to visit. Been there twice and just didn't like it although Santa Barbara and some small towns on the way down are very nice. Yi and I meet up in New York next week.
