Sparky!

On Saturday, February 1, 2014, we adopted Sparky from Berkeley Humane Society.  He is a 2 year old poodle mix.  He likes kids and other dogs.  He doesn’t shed so I’m not allergic to him.  He loves to go on walks.  We are having fun with our new doggie.

I took a walk around the piers in San Francisco to see the Christmas decorations.  This Burning Man art was in front of the Exploratorium.  I saw this at the Burning Man Festival a few years ago.

Golden Girls

On Friday, December 13, I went to see the “Golden Girls Christmas” show in San Francisco with my daughter, son, the “Flock of Sea Girls” band and friends.  We go every year and it is hilarious.  This year we all wore ugly Christmas Sweaters.  Here are my photos:

Isla Mujeres, Mexico

On our last day in Cancun we took a ferry to Isla Mujeres.  We walked to Playa Norte and went swimming.  There are no waves at Playa Norte and the water is clear, a great place to go snorkeling.  Afterwards, we went shopping for souvenirs.  The island is very beautiful.  I would love to spend a few days there.  Here are some of my photos:
