Sorry I didn't post pictures from yesterday, I was worn out from painting a bunch, and then our 3 hour hike up the mountain. :)

Amazing views:

 

Coming home before the sun goes down. We made it back with a little light to spare:

AnneLine and the Hills and Busses and Trains of San Francisco  and San Jose wore poor ARFink out today.

 

I feel bad.

 

I am sure he will tell you all about it....  poor guy...  once he's got his batteries reved back up.... 

 

He's plugged into some music right now...

 

I think he did get some good pictures however...

 

Should have one that looks a whole lot like this... except he wasn't wearing white...  and we had better weather.

One of the ways I walk back from college goes past a church where the slogan is "Church Made Easy". I'm always thinking "ummm, that's not really the point".

OK, so the past couple days have been fun. Yesterday was our biggest day yet. Yesterday was our trip to San Jose. We went with Linda's friend Teresa. We went to the Tech museum and tried out their jetpack simulator and a few other things. It was a grand time. We also saw their Cathedral and went out for a very good lunch. Then we went back to san francisco on the train and went to the shrine of Saint Francis and chinatown and the golden gate bridge. It was a fine and dandy thing, until we tried to ride the bus back from the bridge. That was icky. The buses were packed full of people, with every seat filled, and an additional 20 people jammed into the aisles and door stairs. And apparently it's like that every day around that time. Well, towards the end I was forced to stand, and the driver was really terrible. I got carsick pretty bad. I didn't throw up, but nearly so. Linda felt so bad for me, and was cooing and fussing over me the whole evening when I was really just fine. When we got back home and I had a few minutes to stop being sick and have some quiet time, then I made us some really good mexican food for dinner.

 

Then today we went up San Bruno mountain all the way to the top. I found out that where we climbed to the other day was only halfway up the mountain. The very top is a thousand feet above sea level. It was bristling with TV and radio antennas too, and had excellent views all around.

The San Jose Cathedral was quite nice.

Inside was beautifully painted and with wonderful statues and sculpture and glasswork.

We found this cool looking bridge right at sunset. It's supposedly all famous and that... ;) And then, after our hellish Muni ride, dinner!

Tonight I did some experimenting with acrylic paints. I made this as my first attempt.

 

 

I have more pics from today, and a story, which I will post soon.
