San Francisco - Day 1 

Hi. I am writing to you from my hotel room in San Francisco on a BEAUTIFUL Sunday afternoon. Flight in was peaceful. My son Owen and I are here for a 5 day vacation to go hear music, eat food, see sights, and have a great time! We had a nice lunch at a sidewalk cafe, stopped next door at Healthy Harvest for a great local beer. A new flavor from one of my favorite american breweries: Sierra Nevada's Ovila Abbey Quad. I have never had this on before. It is a dark Belgian style ale brewed with plums! It is 10.2% but goes down easy. Beautiful small bottle with cork and unique label. Nice balance:-) Our hotel is perfectly located 3 blocks to Golden Gate Park or 3 blocks The Presidio. Today we will walk to Golden Gate Park and to The Pacific Ocean. RW

    Hi, Rich, Am in Vegas this week and really hoped to see you here. You know, if I had known that you are a fabulous, famous musician, I never would have presumed to ask you to play in the Calf Creek Campground last April! Your impromptu concert in the canyon by firelight was the highlight of the month. Just in case you are coming though, I'll be back as the camp hostess this April. Bring the keyboard! And if you'd like some photos of that sweet concert, let me know where to send them and how. keekmensing@earthlink.net
