Today, my cousin Sharon drove over from San Jose and we went out to lunch and had a good old-fashioned gab fest. Not hard to do when you haven't seen each other in person for ten years! We have been in touch by email, etc. We went to Jack London Square in Oakland and had seafood at a restaurant named Kirkland's. Since we see each other so rarely, we decided we should indulge in dessert!!! Mine was chocolate:):) Our fathers were brothers and we really don't know too much about that side of the family so we have all been doing some research the last year or two. It was interesting sharing what information we do know and catching up on our respective families. We hope to see each other again before I leave next month.
Beginning my new life as a "sixty and single" woman started with a "Grand Adventure" of a five month road trip. Included in my travels were a stop in the Grand Canyon, two months in Berkeley, CA, and a ferry ride to Juneau, AK. After my two month Alaskan adventure, I returned on the ferry and visited several more national parks before relocating to Franklin, TN. (its great to have children in fun places) I spent the summer of 2012 working in Yellowstone National Park at Fishing Bridge General Store. Wanderlust has struck!!! I have purchased a Casita 17' Spirit Deluxe travel trailer . . . the adventure continues.
