This weekend we took advantage of being in the San Francisco area.

First we took advantage of my friend who had already made camping reservations at Half Moon Bay. She's here with her husband and two kids on sabbatical from Missouri and planned way in advance to take advantage of the time. Every other weekend they have campsites booked. We did no such planning, so we'll be spending some time with them! It was another world, so close by. And really good to get away.

Sunday we decided to go biking. So, sort of a touristy thing even though we're not tourists. It was great to get out and get fresh air and get M some exercise (I'm more able to do it given my free schedule).

Although I hate Comcast (even to the point of when I had to use a Love stamp to send the payment I put and arrow to it and wrote that I really hate you) we learned how to use it and watched Man on Wire for free on Sunday night. It was actually really good - I highly recommend it. We may as well take advantage of all this since I'm canceling or highly reducing the service once the year is up.

Oh, How I miss biking in and around San Francisco. What a beautiful area.

Wow.....what a lovely place to peddle and paddle. :-)

Cute babies :-)

I can't help but admire your deep, abiding hatred for Comcast. You are the second person I've heard recommending Man on a Wire. Good enough for me then!

Comcast...UGH! The number of remotes required to use it drive me insane. I didn't even begin trying to use it myself until a couple of weeks ago. I'd wait for the man to come home to change a channel. How sad is that? But I am starting to get it.

Boy you make me homesick for CA. Half Moon Bay is so beautiful and calming. I think riding your bike is a great way to discover your new home too. Sounds like a wonderful weekend. Yay!

CHurlita, it is. Too bad I wasn't here when you visited. You coulda had a home base.
Mel, it is.
Laura - did you see what happened below??
Ananda, I think no matter what system, you have tons of remotes.
Comcastcares - check out my post of July 10 for beginners...if you are real.
