Our Nob Hill Tour!

We went on another tour today. Nob Hill was a very good tour all about how it was way back then. In the first two pictures we are standing on top of the Fairmont Hotel in the garden.

A view from the Fairmont.

Grace Cathedral, it was huge and awesome inside. These doors are replicas from the 1800's. Each panel has many stories.

Is this garden really in front of the city hall?

The answer is YES, it is so nice and healthy and all the food goes to a food bank to feed the hungry.

Another really cool night at Yoshi's!

We celebrated Juanita's birthday at Yoshi's in Oakland this time. The blues was great. But as I listen I keep thinking that our dear friend Al Carson was just as good.

Our Tales of the Castro Tour!

This was the best (again free) tour we have been on. This lady, Marina, had so much personality and lots of info on the area. Since we live here we really enjoyed learing new things about our area.

The picture below is made of glass and is on the Harvey Milk Academy wall.

New tiles for the fireplace!!!

Whick one do you like???
So far the white marbling looking one on the bottom has all the votes. You cannot tell but it has light veins running thru it.
The top one are a lighter greyish tan mix and match. It looks better in person.

Did I mention that we found these FREE on craigslist????

Patrick's birthday lunch!!!

Yes, we fussed over our favorite neighbor. Home made chocolate cake, home made pizza, mostly from our garden. Look at Lana grinding up the pesto then spreading it on our veggie pizza. It was the best pizza I ever had.

Happy Birthday dear friend.

Juanita and Gene called us and invited Lana and us to a Hawaiian service at Jubilee. It was awesome. The minister was Pastor Wayne Cordeiro of Oahu. He brought his whole entourage. It was amazing. He is on Oahu where two of our sons live that could use his mininstry. We went again to the evening service too. Juanita and Gene fixed us an awesome breakfast at 1pm. A day of blessing for us.
