Show and tell from our summer vacation to Northern California.
Nothing compares to the splendor of Lake Tahoe but nearby Truckee has its charms too. This is the Truckee River which splits the town of 16,000 in half.
Medicine chest located outside the Dragonfly restaurant. Chinese-Americans were mistreated and forced to the south side of the river.
Ikeda’s in Auburn lies at the foothills of the Sierra Nevada range and serves as the most famous last pit stop before Tahoe (Legend says it is bad luck not to stop and get a pie). Another 30 minutes on I-80 lies the small town of Dutch Flat. It is considered a half-ghost town. Nevertheless, very charming too, and the museum director is a walking encyclopedia on town history.
While the better half researched family history, I wandered about and found this odd site. Hey, maybe "Charlie Brown" owns it?
Back in San Francisco, we paid a visit to Greens at Fort Mason. Great adaptive re-use, views of the marina and the bridge, and, of course, veggie heaven.
Matt Cain and the Giants took on the Astros on a gorgeous day. We’ll title this one – Giants Trotting.
Excellent seats in right field upper deck.
Embracing the New York years – nice to see.
A big thanks to those who hosted us, and great to see everyone. Best of all, thanks for the cooler weather!!
