We got home late last night from a short visit to our older son and DIL in N. CA. They live in the East Bay area and we had never explored that before. Besides having a wonderful visit we did a lot of touristing in the brief time we had and we were just glad the ice melted in Atlanta to we could fly out even if it was one and a half days later than planned.
- We went to Half Moon Bay on Saturday so Hubby could see Mavericks surfing spot - no high surf unfortunately but a beautiful little hike on the bluffs followed by a lunch and beer tasting and then a brief walk around the town.
- Sunday our DIL put together a gourmet picnic and we headed to Napa. Two wineries and a lovely picnic by the vineyards and we were well satisfied for the day.
- Monday we went into Oakland to see where our DIL works and then to Berkeley to walk around and see the house they have under contract. In the midst of our visit they were going through inspection and pest reports, signing loan disclosure forms, etc. Got in a Mexican food lunch as I really wanted also.
Their realtor was kind and met us at the house so we could go inside as it is not occupied. Our DIL's mother generously let us stay at her house for the trip and then invited their extended family over for a lovely dinner Monday night.
Then it was back on the plane and home to an exhausted dog who desperately needs a bath after playing outside with her doggie friends while she stayed at her foster family's home. Once she has enough sleep to rally a bit that is definitely on the list. Her bed is washing now LOL.
