Today’s positive…arriving home to a wellfed cat, thanks to my beautiful friends who did feeding shifts, and being greeted by her purring and doing the figure eight love walk around my legs.
Pets know how to make you smile even when youre sick and exhausted after a fifteen hour flight.
Today’s positive…my last day in the US.
Thats not really a positive as Im sad to be leaving my daughter. But having a last day means you have been able to have a first day too.
I have so enjoyed being part of her daily life, and the overall positive is that I was able to do just that.
Tonight its back to Sydney for me.
Todays’s positive…a cheeky white fluffy puppy keeping me company while Im home with a sore throat. Being sick on holidays sucks, but he makes me smile.
Getting out of the city is always good and a day spent in Mount Diablo State Park gets you not only fresh country air but mesmerising views as you wind your way up steep roads to 2500feet sharing the road with both cyclist and cars, It’s a slow ride but so worth it.
On the day we ventured into the park the fire danger was very high and the land was very dry but the colours amazing. Yellows, greens, blues and rusty browns in stark contrast to each other coloured the landscape as far as you could see until the hazy fog took over.
The bush reminded me a bit of the Australian bush. The dryness and the spiky tiny leaves characterised by our own native Australian plants.
A picnic in the bush was the icing on the cake in spite of having to share with native bees. Why does food taste so much better in fresh air?
A must visit place when in the SF Bay area. In spite of the overwhelming crowds its worth the short ferry ride across from pier 33 in San Francisco.
The audio tour guide was well presented; you felt like you were there with the eerie reenactment.
We were lucky to have a sunny day to balance the chills you may experience on the island.
Today’s positive…nothing like holidays to put a smile on your dial. Let the adventures begin …family visit…book research…photography…playing tourist. I am pumped!
Todays’s positive…feeling fabulous. It’s Friday and the start of my holidays. 2 days getting organised before flying to San Francisco to see my daughter. EXCITED
Today’s positive…enjoying lunch in the winter sun with work mates in our local park chatting about weekend plans and upcoming holidays.
Can’t believe it’s a year since I first visited San Fransisco. Got this memory reminder on Facebook. So looking forward to go there again in September and see my girl again.
School holidays are the best!
The traffic in Sydney is so much better and the daily commute a breeze.
