Day 27: San Francisco by Segway!

After much deliberation and planning, we have a day mapped out for today that combines all the things we love most, exploring new places, trying new things, but, best of all, uninterrupted time together.  Here’s the game plan…Sarah’s never explored Angel Island, and, obviously, nor had we. So, we planned to meet at the ferry in Tiburon, have a little breakfast and then take the 10:00 am Ferry to Angel Island.  

Now here’s the clincher…Greg suggested we take a guided SEGWAY tour around Angel Island!

Now I don’t know about you, but when I think of SEGWAYs, the picture that comes to mind is one of a mall cop patrolling the Shops at Mission Viejo.   I just don’t understand how one can possibly balance on that 2-wheeled space machine, so I really have no confidence that I could ride one, even if I wanted to!!  Sarah feels the same way I do.  But we agree to “suck it up” and GO FOR IT!! After all, Greg has been nice enough to reserve/pay for a trip on these beauts, the least Sarah and I can do is to be open to the possibility of fun.

Well let me tell you….I could NOT have been MORE WRONG.  These SEGWAYS were a blast!

We had a fantastic time and wished the trip was longer!  Way to go Greg!! The Champ was 100% right!!  Check us out!

After our wonderful morning/afternoon, we found our way to the Tiburon Tavern where we could enjoy a bite to eat and the second half of the Bruin game…Go Bruins!  It’s nice to have our first win of the season under our belt!

After our day of adventure, Sarah returns with us to the RV Park in Marin…We can’t wait to show her where we’ve been living for the last month!!

Home sweet mobile home!!

As you can imagine, the end of the day came way too quickly and I am so very sad to say goodbye to our Sarah 😦  We love you Sar Bear! We’re counting the days until we see you again…(Maybe Santa will bring you a Segway for Christmas, hee hee!)

Day 26: San Francisco to See Our Sarah!

We’ve been so looking forward to this next leg of our trip!  We get to see our Sarah, who’s living and working in San Francisco.  So, while I COULD expend energy telling you the details leading up to our arrival in San Francisco, I’ll jump to the highlight…We GET TO SEE OUR DAUGHTER!! I felt like a kid who can’t wait for Christmas morning to come…hurry up clock!  Fast forward to the time she’s off work and we get to see her!!

Since our RV is parked outside the city, we have to catch the Larkspur Ferry into the city and then we decide to walk from the SF Ferry Terminal to her apartment, which according to our calculations, should only be about 30 minutes.  HOWEVER, the GPS map fails to mention that a good portion of that walk will be straight UPHILL!! Thankfully, we had the good sense to wear our tennies, so at least we had that going for us.  (I do not know how she walks/runs these streets every day…She is a better woman than I…this walk just about kills me!)

We finally made to her new apartment, which we have not seen since she moved in last month. While the apartment and her roommates were darling, the real treat was seeing our beautiful Sarah!!

Beautiful Sarah runs out to meet us…First things first, CONGRATULATIONS WORLD CHAMPION!

She made reservations at a healthy new restaurant in her neighborhood, “Lord Stanley’s,” and we three had a delicious dinner and a wonderful time catching up, laughing, sharing stories and having a perfect night.  Sarah is an incredible young woman, and we are so proud of her!

It would be hard to say goodbye, but we can leave knowing that we have an incredible day planned together tomorrow.
