Pictures from California

I finally got the pictures off of my camera from my Berkeley trip and thought I would share. I had a great time with Doug and Kristen and hope to be able to go back next year (preferably this time with Ryan in tow).

Doug and Kristen in Fisherman's Wharf with a giant crab

Forbes Island - the floating restaurant. Do not recommend if you are prone to seasickness.

Statue on Forbes Island. It was kind of a strange place....

We went to Kristen's office where she does the lawyering....

...and helped her with the availability board

We finally made it to Alcatraz on Saturday

This was about the same size as Doug's room in our old house

Cheese pretzel on the return boat from Alcatraz. Kristen chose....poorly

Doug's kitty, Digger

If you are at all interested you can find the rest of the pictures here.

Two things that made me happy today

1. Finding an upside to dialysis:

Getting out of jury duty. Yay!

2. Standing in the line that was stretching out the door for the 10 voting booths set up for early voting at Randall's.

This thing is almost over. Just 2 more weeks....
