_MG_0295The East or the West Pier in Santa Barbara?

Does it matter?


A Cat and Mouse game in San Francisco





Cat knows that I am watching…


Mouse is now over hiding in a crack in the pavement on the LHS.

That poor stupid mouse was too frightened to run for the hills. Cat got bored and went inside. Daughter went out and covered the frightened mouse with a leaf. Cat came back and found mouse. This actually was hysterical watching cat sniff out our hiding place…

At that stage, we had to leave. We were in SF and had things to do. When we got back, cat came bounding down the stairs looking for the mouse. We reckoned mouse had escaped.

One of the many lunatics we met on our travels. Daughter scolded me for taking the pic. I thought I was being artsy?

We travelled by public transport and it was so obvious that there were so many untreated mentally ill people around. Ronny Raygun?

We also had our laughs. Thinking I was alone at the pool in SLO (get with it), I rescued a drowning bee with a leaf. Pumping my arms, I shouted to my daughter, I just saved a bee. Apparently we had an audience in the balcony above the pool.

While trying to meet my son, sitting on the bus, I asked daughter where do we get off. She said (or I thought she said), I hop just across the road. I asked her why she needed to hop across the road.

She looked at me. And then I saw IHOP!! Apparently it is a restaurant. We were falling around the place laughing at that stage.

A few days ago we were heading to the Holiday Inn Express for our final night before the flight. I asked the bus driver where it was. In the middle of the bus ride he called out to me asking about the directions. Next thing, all of the passengers weighed in and there was a big discussion about the whereabouts of the HIE. I thought that only happened in Ireland. We weren’t staying at the Ritz and everyone now knew it.  People were really, really nice and helpful and they got us to our destination.


And that was my lost post. Perhaps it should have stayed lost? Anyway, more holiday pics to come later… 🙂
