Back home after the US trip I’m checking all the pictures and they are for sure a fantastic memory of what we saw. What you are is what you see, and we saw something that enriched ourself. We spent the last day in Carmel, with its beaches and houses and golf courses. Very chilly, but very lovely place to stay, maybe not in summer when the fog is there everyday. See you soon California.
Some days ago we spent all day on the road, travelling from the Gand Canyon village to Disneyland: 460 miles. A long ride on very hot roads (43 Celsius in avergae), behing the glorious route 66, with a lot of music and games like Uno and all the iPad can offer. I need to say that the air conditiong of our car was our best fiend!
This morning we entered into the Valley! And what a Valley!
For people like me, with many years spent on the walls, a journey in a valley is something normal; nevertheless I always look around to find new views, rocks, walls…
But this morning we finally met the incomparable valley: Yosemite’s natural beauty can be found in things big and and small, from towering granite cliffs and giant sequoias to diminutive wildflowers. I’m still astonished by El Capitan, I think I’ll never do it… it’s too big 🙂 We hiked along the Mist trail up to the Vernall Fall: again, something big!
Yesterday the weather was fantastic and we spent our time doing what you can’t miss if you want to have a deep dive in Frisco. First, breakfast at Honey Honey where the choice is amazing with the best value for price. Second, Alamo Square with the Painted Ladies. Afterwords around the Golden Gate Park, like every family does on Sunday with a visit to the Japanese Tea Garden, see a picture. Again, at my favourite restaurant the “Cliff House” where the lunch was super like the view on the ocean from the Sutro’s dining room, see picture. After lunch, quite late, a walk on the beach. And then downtown in Market Street for some shopping.
Finally, sliced pizza in our hotel room 🙂 We enjoied Frisco a lot, and now it’s time to move not so far from here. What’s next..?
