If Life is an illusion, then why do I keep banging my head against the wall?

Si la Vie est une illusion, pourquoi je n'arrête pas de me taper la tête sur les murs?

Final Days In San Francisco

I’ve fallen behind on my travel updates, but I did want to post some final photos of San Francisco because when you have eleven people (especially from the same family) traveling together and at the end of the the trip, you have eleven people still talking to one another – that’s a feat all on its own!

From 13 years old to 87 years young, we were an eclectic bunch.

The weather wasn’t the greatest when we were there, so while some went to visit Alcatraz, others went shopping, and there were those who just wanted to find a Starbuck’s or a Barnes & Noble and get out of the rain!

Patrick, the last one having breakfast. Hmm, or is he the first one waiting for Happy Hour?!

We loved our hotel suites and the big breakfasts that were served. The girls just wandered down in their pajamas.  (They weren’t the only ones!  Although some of the other guests were wearing pjs, they were more discreet then the panda bears and monkeys the girls were wearing, which screamed, “Let’s have a pajamas party!”)  Needless to say, Patrick and I enjoyed Happy Hour in the evening and no matter what everyone did during the day, we always met up for dinner.

Maya Muses:  We left the rainy West Coast and flew back to the sunny Southwest (Ahh!) for a final short visit of 70° weather before returning to the freezing Northeast and all that snow!  Brrr!

    It must have been nice to travel with all your family like that! I hope to be able to do something similar in the future!!!

    My family wouldn’t even attempt to make a trip like that! We would probably be at each others throats by the end of the first day!

    Meredith, at times it was a little hectic, but all in all we had a great time.

    Pam, there were times (not that many) when we could have been as well, but we had “Grandma” (my mom) keeping everyone in their place! Lol.

    So that’s how you do it! You get yourself a ringleader!

    I’ve never thought of it that way, Cid, but I think you’re right! Lol.

    Were you on that boat/ferry taking Patrick’s photo?

    Sounds like you have had a wonderful vacation.

    No way, Harriet! The weather was bad and the water was choppy! I told everyone, I had already been to Alcatraz and I sure as heck didn’t need to go again! After our boating accident….there was no way I was going to get on that ferry! I didn’t even like driving over the Golden Gate Bridge!!!

    My mom and Patrick told me it was a good thing I didn’t go! The trip over to the island was so bad, my mom was praying and Patrick was wondering why he went! Coming back they said it was a lot better. As far as I’m concerned, I avoid going over water whenever possible!
