We dreamed of California sunshine and drove south, but though we sought it high and low we found it on only one of the 10 days we spent there. We had a great time though, enjoying the Andy Warhol retrospective and a 3D movie in SF, four hours in the Monterey Bay Aquarium, shopping in Carmel, and a drive to Big Sur for lunch. Of course it was friends and family that we went to see, and we had many hours of good coversation and catching up before heading home on Sunday.
Is it good to be back? Well, it's nice to sleep in our own bed and know where the silverware is, but my habit is always to wish to stay longer and this trip was no exception. For one thing, the sunshine was settling in for a nice warm stay.
Here are some photos from the trip.
