    Fishdr comes to CA!

    Okay - drifting the TD drift of the Fish visit over here....

    Fishdr is coming to SF for a work thing-y the weekend of Sept. 2. She'll be free to come out and play Saturday afternoon and Sunday.

    Possible activities suggested were:

    1. Drive up the coast, up Mt. Tam, go to the cheese factory for lunch;
    2. Wineries (I have not been to a winery for years) - maybe we see about renting a wine van if we have enough folks who want to do it? I think we could do this fairly economically and then we wouldn't have to worry about designated drivers.
    3. Chocolate factory, jelly belly factory.
    4. Touring sights of SF - museums (the DeYoung is great), parks, Ghirardelli square (hmm... more chocolate there).

    Who wants to come along? Other suggestions for things to do?? I expect she won't have a bike, but if someone had one to fit her you could go for a ride (I couldn't join you). Fish - my bikes are both in the 54 - 55 size range if those would work, you're welcome to borrow one.

    So let's start planning!

    I'm in! I'm in!

    All of the above activities sound fun.

    And let's not forget the Ferry Building: lot's of fun foodie stuff there - fancy chocolate, Cow Girl Creamery cheeses, wine, olive oil, and caviar tasting, Hog Island oysters, etc.

    (And by the way, Fish, my office is in downtown SF very near the Ferry Building so I'll also be around for any other "down time" you might have while you're here- I am self-employed, so I can be very flexible!)
    Keep calm and carry on...

    I LOVE the Ferry Building!!! It is probably relatively close to Fish's hotel. Not quite sure where the Mariott is...

    Ferry building? I could get there by BART (or Amtrak) and wouldn't need a navigator.

    It's fun to forage for yummy stuff from the produce place, Acme and Cow Girl, then set up camp at the wine-tasting place and taste wine! Then stroll over for some Peets, and/or gelato! Oh, it's dangerous over there...
    Keep calm and carry on...

    It is very dangerous at the FB. I love that French rustic food place - roasted chicken and fish and potatoes and great fare. And the chocolates. Oh - and the olive place. And the BREAD!! GELATO!!!!! WINE!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I may need to take a moment to collect my thoughts.

    That would be good also - we have 2 days so we can Ferry one day and have a drive the other.

    Driving up the coast would involve cheese, bakeries, possibly more wine....

    I have a feeling I'm going to gain weight on this trip...

    You'll only gain weight if we are doing our jobs as tour guides.

    I vote for wine! But...I always vote for wine. All of those sound nice.

    Me too! Me too!

    Ferry Building sounds fun, but I'll go with the group. Dr. Fish? What do you think you'd like to do?
