Lisa is staying in our guest room until Sunday, when she will fly to Sydney, Australia for a one week vacation. She will return to Hawaii for a night and then fly back to Nevada, where she resides.
If her vacation in Sydney turns out to be an interesting one, David and I might do something similar next year. I especially want to see the exotic animals, such as the koala bear, the kangaroo, and the Tasmanian Devil.
Our trip to San Francisco in May is shaping up nicely. We have invited a blog friend, dkzody, and her husband to lunch at our hotel. Do click on her name on my blog roll to see what a fine person she is. She is a retired high school teacher and now volunteers as a chaplain at an elementary school in Fresno. It will be great to meet her and her husband in person.
Last night, David bought two tickets for the tour to Alcatraz Island, located in San Francisco Bay. We will ride the boat to Alcatraz and will be able to see the prison which housed so many criminals. Do you remember the movie, “Birdman of Alcatraz,” starring Burt Lancaster? I’ll remember that movie when we tour the prison.
I discovered that the island is hilly and akin to walking up a 13 floor building, which would be difficult for David. Because he has a card that certifies he is physically handicapped, he will be permitted to ride the SEAT, a motorized vehicle, to the prison. However, since I don’t qualify, I will have to walk the distance.
