Moving on - Finally

As far as the progress of my trip out West is concerned, I believe I left everyone at a rest stop in Oregon.  4th of July came into focus, along with a couple of July birthdays and a few health issues and I became distracted . . . it could be that I suffer from undiagnosed ADHD, though I'm not at all sure about the "hyperactivity" part.

My hubby and I spent the night in Medford before driving the rest of the journey to San Francisco, where my youngest sister, Norma, lives. 

After trying unsuccessfully for several years to sell her large home in Novato, California, Norma was finally able to sell it this time around and for a much fairer price than she would have gotten a couple of years ago.  She has now purchased a smaller condo that over looks San Francisco Bay.  The view is spectacular, and the area around her offers a lot to do and to see but I'm sure the downsizing is going to take a bit of getting use to.

Photo below - Even though there was summer fog, we were able to see the City of San Francisco from Norma's condo.

Photos below - And then of course there's the Golden Gate Bridge.  Yes I know it's a long ways away but with my cheap little point and click camera, my zoom capacity is about 3X or 5X, which is almost nothing.


  1. Nice views! I can't tell if she's in the East Bay or Tiburon/Belvedere, from those views. Nice though. I miss the Bay Area. Haven't been there since 08.

  2. So glad your Sister was able to sell her house, nothing worse than trying to get that process done and it not working out, so glad the economy work out that she was able to get a fair market price.

    Our Daughter lives in San Francisco; Medford is my halfway stopping place too :)

    Hope you have a lovely weekend, cheers, T. :)

  3. That is a nice view even with the fog. And big kudos to your sister for waiting until the market was better for her sell!

  4. I agree, nice views! I've only been to SF a couple of times, but I loved it!

  5. Sonds like a long trip. Looks like you got some amazing photographs out of it.

  6. Wow, those are awesome views! I went to SF as a young girl and don't remember much about it, but would love to visit now. What a treat to spend time with your sister.


Nothing makes me happier than to hear from those who have dropped by my blog for a visit. I love hearing from you.
