Lovely lazy day today. Had a lie in and then went for a run. Trotted over to the Starbucks next door afterwards and ordered a venti coffee and then went back for a shower and late breakfast.
Started a new knitting project and then drove south to Campbell where Anne lives to hang out with Anne, Matt and Kate for the rest of the afternoon.
Got back to my hotel about 7pm and so curled up on the sofa and watched crap TV until bed time.
Days like that don’t happen very often, but they are very nice now and again. Of course, I would have much rather been up a hill in the UK! 😀

Today was a day off from work, and lucky for me, some friends from the UK are in the area on vacation/live in the area for work, so they drove over and picked me up from my hotel and we drove up the coast from San Francisco to Heart’s Desire Beach in Inverness, CA at Tomales Bay State Park.
We were meeting some of Anne’s friends for a beach party, so when we arrived we helped to set up and got the BBQ going. They were cooking chicken, steak and oysters on the BBQ: lots of chicken, steak and oysters… it was quite heavy on the dead things, and light on the veggies, considering there were 3 veggies there.
We hung out on the beach all afternoon, and walked down the coast along the trails, which were cool because there was lots of information about the Miwock Indians who used to live there, as well as little teepee homes that they used to live in, which was nice to see.
Not a bad day really considering I would have usually been pootling around on my own. The only bad thing was that the weather wasn’t great, it was overcast and foggy all day, which was a shame. Even so, I have still managed to catch the sun. 🙂
