1st San Francisco Post

Hello from the West Coast!
Flying over Colorado, still snow on the mountains.

I have finally made it, after making stops in Santa Rosa Beach, FL and Nashville, TN, I am now writing this from my new "workspace" in the Marina in San Francisco!

Yesterday I made my first grocery store run and grabbed three different shades of gerbera daisies. 
 They make my "workspace" happy.

KTW and I have had fun going on dates since I arrived, something I had really missed during our long-distance relationship.  Last night we went to The Tonga Room where some of his colleagues were meeting for happy hour.  Located in the bottom of the historic and beautiful Fairmont Hotel, this bizarre, quirky tiki lounge is anything but expected.  It was a little dark for pictures so check out their website.  The indoor thunder and rainstorms were pretty entertaining.  Afterwards, we came back to the Marina for pizza at Delarosa, fabulous!  I ordered this watermelon wheat beer and was thrilled to see the can,  The Statue of Liberty resting on the Golden Gate Bridge, 
sounds quite familiar to this former New York girl... :)

It sounds wonderful! I'm so glad you had a fun reunion with T. I like being able to picture where you're blogging from! (Um, stalker alert, I also plugged your address into google maps street view to get a sense of your neighborhood - it looks great!.)

Now go find a place that does cheap mani/pedis!
