August Sky

I spent my birthday in early August by taking a day off and playing hooky with the hubby in San Francisco. We visited Twin Peaks as a gift to myself since I haven't been up there. As far as skies in August go, it was foggy as expected.

And we ended the day of celebration by taking a Hornblower sunset cruise (yah, we love dinner cruises!) in the San Francisco Bay. The food was fantastic and the music was lovely. The sights of course is superb.

    Great photos! The dinner cruises in the San Francisco Bay sounds fantastic!

    Thank you for your lovely words to my mother and for her works!
    I am sorry I did not inherit my mother's artistic talent and ability in weaving...
    My mother gave me some lessons and I only did a poncho for Sofia and Fernando, not more than that...

    Have a happy day!
