Thursday, Through Monday Feb . 9 -13, 2017

After out cruise, we flew up to San Francisco to visit our son, Greg and his partner, Chuck. They live in Diamond Heights. On the first night Tom cooked for the first time in a few weeks and made Spaghetti Bolognese. Of course, this was a dining weekend and Friday saw a great dinner at the number 2 restaurant in all of SF, Kokkari.

Saturday we went to a plant store and to a gourmet market to buy the ingredients for dinner. Sunday was a food tour in North Beach followed by a grazing over the leftovers.

On Monday, we met our friend Linda Casey and strolled through the MOMA.

A taste of Tai food for Monday dinner and an early call the next morning to board the plane for home.
