I've Just Got Share What My Dear Friend Essie Made Me

I brought her paper clay, some tools and eyes... then she created this beautiful Japanese doll for me.
She will always remind me of my time with Es (and her husband) in San Francisco and Japan Town.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart Es.....

I'm Back and I Left My Wonderful Friend in San Francisco

Is it always good to come home after a trip? Yes and no for me.

I had a wonderful time in San Francisco! Not only was it warm and sunny but the best part is meeting my friend Essie and her husband! We had SO much fun! Alcatraz, Double Decker tour bus ride, Japan town, Fisherman's Wharf.... just hanging out... It gets me excited for the Netherlands in April... so here you are some photos!

This guy stole my heart!

 Prisoner's Cell and how it looked way back then...
 This is a "peep" hole that the prisoner's could look out to San Francisco

 Tired me enjoying the sun!


 I love rusty things...

 This was an auto-man gallery on Fisherman's Wharf.... This doll was scary... she laughed and rocked back and forth.
