We end our out of Canada portion of this trip by staying with Lydia's Aunt
Angela and her husband George in a location near San Francisco. This is a
great place to settle down. I am sure there is a town name associated with this
location but that would give the wrong impression. We are in the hills among
huge forested acreages and the only sign of a neighbor seems to be a roof that
I can see peeking out of the trees across the valley. I really think that I could
stay here for a very long time but Simon yells in fear of the dog and
Benjamin's normally loud defiant ways are heightened by a cold and we gave
George the cold leaving him bed ridden for three days so...I am sure that when
our scheduled time here is done it will be time to go. We will continue to do
some sight seeing but the main point here is to have Lydia and her aunt visit.
Here the memory will be learning to play Mah Jong, a truly fine way to spend
many e venings.
Next stop, Calgary to see family and friends.
