Weekend #5

Okay - so today we went with Jon to the Winchester Mystery Mansion. All I can say is . . . it's really big. :) We had a fun time and took some pictures. I didn't take too many of the house because . . . well, pictures just wouldn't do it justice. But I posted a few here. And I have no idea what we're doing the rest of the weekend. It's really rainy here right now and I've been told to get used to it. This IS the rainy season - dang it!

Screaming Eagles!!!

Ok - some quick updates: on sunday i went to an antique bazaar in alameda with jane and larry and it was so much fun! there was anything and everything imaginable. but the most interesting was the assortment of people you could see wondering around. i had some fabulous kettle popcorn and then jane and larry took me to eat at a neat restaurant on the harbor where you could see the water from both sides. it made for a very relaxing sunday. so i was talking with one of the girls at work today and she said that on one of her travel assignments, her apartment was next door to a school for the deaf. she said that every saturday they would have some sort of sports tournament AND . . . their team name was the SCREAMING EAGLES! i laughed so hard i nearly fell out of my chair. so i thought i'd spread the laughter. i thought it was a very cute name. we are tentatively planning a trip to wine country for saturday (and yes, spending the night:) more to come later . . . and christina, my new camera will be a canon powershot A710-IS. it's gonna be so cool . . . :)

Half Moon Bay

We Love Beaches . . . we had the most wonderful saturday:) we drove to half moon bay with the travel nurse who's leaving (suzanne) and we walked along the beach for two hours - it was mid 60s so we were even able to take our shoes off and roll up our jeans! - and then we walked around downtown and ate lunch outside. THEN we found this wonderful little wildlife refuge called moss beach and it had this whole area where seals were nesting! it was so cool! and there are these rocks all along the beach that you walk around on (the seals are also laying on them) and there are millions of little crabs in their shells . . . we even saw a starfish!!! (thanks to kate's eagle eyes:) so we ended up watching the sunset over this beach and it was amazing . . .we have lots of pictures but they weren't digital so we can't post them yet. BUT i have ordered my digital camera so i should get it by friday this week. :)! more pics and stories to come~
