It's so nice to see you in good company, Carmen. The view of the city left me breathless!
Now I'm singing to myself..."I left my heart in San Francisco".......fantastic photos you've shared!!!!A WHOLE TREE drifting ashore at sunriseHope your Wednesday has treated you well so far!!! Drop by to say hello if you can.
hitesh rawat -Since it was a "wordless Wednesday" post, I didn't write any explanations...but, actually, these photos were taken last year when my nursing school classmate visited with her daughter, Laurel. Martha and I met at Charity Hospital in New Orleans as freshman student nurses and we have now been friends 48 years. She was my maid of honor at my first wedding and she was the godmother of my oldest son, Shawn, who you see in the photos. I am so grateful that she is still alive as she has hadtwo brain surgeries for aneursyms. She still lives in the New Orleans area with her husband who is an attorney.
fullet -I am writing the same reply to you that I wrote to hitesh so you will know about my friend in the pictures - Since it was a "wordless Wednesday" post, I didn't write any explanations...but, actually, these photos were taken last year when my nursing school classmate visited with her daughter, Laurel.

As for that yacht, isn't it something? I am sure it was built in Europe or elsewhere. I saw one exactly like it last year when I was in Portofino!!!

I always love your photographs. So tempted to go to the Museum of Fine Arts or walk around Golden Gate Park this weekend These are wonderful Carmen.Gigie Marie
Ah, I see familiar places. It's good that you showed them around the city. That's a great story about true friendship lasting for a long time. Good for both of you. :)
That's some ship! The shapes almost look like sails... perhaps the designer knew that.
I enjoyed your photos. SF is one of my favorite cities.Thanks for the little story about your yellow dress. :-)
Shrinking life to its real and important size. Glad to see such happiness. Please have you all a good Thursday.
Irredento Urbanita -The visitors were my nursing school classmate - a friend of 48 years ( we met at Charity Hospital in New Orleans ) and her daughter, Laura & the young man with us is my son, Shawn -he's my friend's godson and he'll be forty in December!
Indrani -Absolutely wonderful memories...my friendship goes back 48 years, to my beginning days in nursing school and has continued a lifetime!Dulce -Some of my dreams have come true...since I first saw San Francisco, I wanted to live here and, at 31, I made the move after a year of living in southern CA. It's been 34 years now and I still love it.Manang Kim -You must make it happen. San Francisco is a wonderful place. Pat at Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti has just been out here and she's done some amazing blogs about the city.Anonymous aka Gigie Marie -I am away this weekend but I do want to invite you to dinner one time when you're in town on the weekend - to my friend's Thai Restaurant on 24th...it would have to be on a Sat night since they're closed on Sunday.Shey -I'd like to show you around as well...so get out here.Sharkbytes (TM) -Isn't that an incredible yacht!! We saw the same one in the Mediterranean..Portofino, I believe...ah, to be wealthy!Pagan Sphinx -I am so lucky to have had the last 34 years in the San Francisco area....it's had some changes, not for the best, but it still remains my favorite of all places in the world.ρομπερτ -I keep thinking of how long it's been since I was in Greece. I wish I could get back. A dear friend is ailing and I would so love to see him and his wife. They have a lovely home in Corinth and keep asking me to come and stay awhile. Just don't have the funds, since retirement, or I'd head over immediately!!
Happy Birthday. I made the caponata and it was delicious. I think Eleanor might finally be able to teach me to cook.
