Vacation

We had a really great time in SF with Kerry and Isaac. For our last dinner there we went to a really cute little Italian place in the Mission. The pace for dinner was quite a bit more relaxed than most restaurants, which was really quite nice. The of that evening food that stands out for me was the vanilla ice cream with amazing amaretto cherries. We're thinking of trying this: http://canningusa.com/IfICanYouCan/CherriesInfused.htm With some of the tart dried cherries that Lisa found on Amazon. We'll let you know how it goes! Vacation has been really nice. Lots of good video game time and a little V-mars too. Lisa just fell asleep on the couch watching Drake's Fortune, so she's happy :-) That's all for this update.

San Francisco

We've been having a great visit to see K & I. Yesterday we spent the day leisurely bumming up and down Highway 1. For a good portion of the day we could see lightening and rain off in the distance, which is odd for this time of year. Eventually we ran on the following images:







They were fighting a forest fire that was started by lightening. It was pretty cool to see the helicopter ferrying water back and forth from the ocean to try to quench the flames. Check out some of the other photos on flickr.

More later.
