Airport. It's been a busy two weeks and we had a wonderful time. We ate at a
variety of Asian restaurants - Thai, Sinaporean, Indian, Japananese and Chinese,
feasted on seafood and I did some cooking as well.
We managed to fit in a three day visit to my son and his wife in West Sacramento and
just spent a lot of time taking in the lovely scenery in my own area - when the summer
fog didn't interfere with visibility! This is the time of year when fog is heaviest. I really
don't mind it much - after all, that's San Francisco - except when I'm driving!
I took this picture of the Pacific and the pier in Pacifica on a wonderfully sunny day.
The location is less than five miles from my home and my son fishes from this pier, on
About 8AM, my phone rang and I was delighted to hear the voice of my dear friend,
Werner Bernhard, a forensic toxicologist at the Legal Institute of Medicine in Bern,
Switzerland. He was calling to tell me he will be attending the meeting of the
International Association of Forensic Toxicologists in San Francisco the end of
September here in San Francisco and wanted to know if he could stay a few days with
me afterwards! How wonderful! I first met Werner in 1995 at another meeting here,
showed him about the city during his stay after and we have become dear friends. I've
visited his home in Switzerland twice, his son has spent a month two different summers
here and become a friend of my son, Jeremy, and Jeremy has, subsequently, been a
guest of the Bernhards in Switzerland twice for two lengthy stays. It is just amazing how
friendships develop and prosper!
