Above The Blue And Windy Sea

The excellent photograph is by Hao$ and comes courtesy of Flickr
Many years ago I promised The Lad that if ever he became a doctor,he and I would go to San Francisco to celebrate. He has become a doctor and in a few days time, he, and I, and the Good Lady Wife, and the Lovely Girlfriend will jet off to the West Coast for a holiday. Our break will coincide with my 65th birthday, so I am hoping that lots of craft beer and a little good jazz will be added to the mixture. What with preparations and vacations, News From Nowhere will be off the air for most of June. But I will be back soon .... and hopefully I will have a tale to tell. Until then, I am to be found there in San Francisco, above the blue and windy sea.

  2. If you are going to SF than I hope you jet off to the West coat rather than the east. We had 15 months in that area on a company assignment back in the 80s - love that part of California, although SF can get a bit cold when the sea fogs roll in. "Enjoy" as our ex-colonial friends say.
