I'm from L.A and went to college in Maine and now I live in San Francisco. With all of those miles behind me, I have many friends in many places. New York, Boston, D.C., Chicago, Madison, Minneapolis, Austin, London, Barcelona, Quito. You know who you are. Although I miss my friends dearly who don't live in the same city as me, I delight in the fact that visits are inevitable when friendships are this strong.
Most recently, I was lucky enough to have a visit from my wonderful friend Katy and her sweet husband John. They're on their way back home to Colorado after living in Alaska for the past few months. They stopped into San Francisco to say hello to friends and a city that will always welcome them.
Katy and John
Saturday morning at the Ferry Building. The best place to take out-of-town guests and the best place to enjoy whatever season we're in. This time, it was a pumpkin, squash, gourd fest. We also had a taste of summer. Raspberries and tomatoes reminded us all of a season one could never forget.
Later in the day, Katy, John, Sarah and I stopped by Ocean Beach, where our friends Maureen and Fifi were throwing a little party. Katy and Maureen sang together in an acapella group in college.
Katy's beautiful braids. Her hair is so long, they wrap multiple times around her head!
Fifi, the birthday boy!
Maureen, the sun-kissed beauty!
A rare opportunity to have the sun in my eyes.
Another gorgeous SF sunset.
Katy and John, the adventurous travelers marveling at another destination along their journey.
We played a few rounds of trust - feeling free.
As the sun goes down, so does the temperature. I wonder if I've said that before? The bonfire keeps us all warm, as we wonder what to do next.
Well, we know. Dinner at Outerlands of course. Squash soup and Dave's toast.
Katy and John, come back, so we can do it all over again!!! Miss you already, xoxo.
