San Francisco bound
In a couple of weeks I will be going out to San Francisco to visit my Aunt Beryl (my mother's sister). Hopefully I will come home refreshed and ready to work again.
I am really looking forward to my trip. It is the first time I will be going on vacation solo if you can believe that at my age! But I have always traveled with husbands, children etc. Never alone. I am pretty sure I will like it. It is funny because my aunt, who is in her eighties travels all over the world. Solo. She has been to every continent at least twice and some more than that. I really admire her for her vast travel energy. She even went to Iran last fall. No one in the family could understand why but she is just such a curious person and it was one of the only places she hadn’t been yet. Not only does she travel all over the world but she also works part time as a docent at the California Academy of Sciences in San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park.
She is a feisty lady and I adore her. This is her. Isn't she adorable?
