Thinking about moving to KCL

Tomorrow's a holiday, so I may have time to look into it.

Of course I'll let you know if I do that.

Pics as promised

These are a few shots from Sunday -- As promised.
What I didn't know when we went there was a piece of family lore.
Many years ago my grandparents were walking along this beach and a seal came shooting out of the water onto the beach behind them. He was followed by an enormous shark, which bit it in two and dragged it back into the water...

Thing2's response to this was to tell me "I told you that beach was dangerous.
When we were there we didn't see any sharks, but there was a world-class kite surfer out in the big waves.

One of the little beaches

There were lots of interesting plants too.

No pics this morning

My wireless mouse apparenetly was insulted by my desktop ncomputer and has decided not to speak to it.

Until I can get them back on speaking terms there will be no pictures.

Sorry :(

It's so good to be back

I knew that I missed reading all of your blogs, but I had forgotten the little bonuses that come from writing about our daily activities and interests.

For example, I never would have learned about the history and architecture of Asilomar if I handlt posted my previous short little note. (I haven't forgotten about the photos... I did find time to upload them, so tomorrow morning I'll post them.)

And while I was doing that search, I ran across several great web sites.

One was a talk on gender in the visual arts: Oh What A Difference A Difference Makes

The other is a site that bills itself as a web search for women. I'm not sure if it's actively maintained, but it's full of interesting links.

All in all, I have to say it's nice to be back.

Good Morning Everyone

I don't have much to say.

Later I will post some pictures from yesterday. We had a really great day at Asilomar State Beach and Conference Center. Interesting factoid -- it was originally developed by the YWCA as a women's conference center. It has a wonderful feeling, perhaps that's why.

A very nice lady who was attending the national Qigong convention struck-up a conversation with Thing2. It felt like a day that was meant to be.

Check back for pictures later...

A much needed blogging vacation comes to an end (probably)

The last few months has been quite a journey. And I'm sure it's only the beginning.

Thing2 and I are trying to get out every weekend for some good walks. (Not hikes, I HATE hiking- I've hated it with a passion since I was 5-years old... but that's another story.)

Here are two photos from the walk we took yesterday on the coast. The first photo is from the beginning, when there was still fog blowing through the top of the trees. The second one is from the end of the walk, when the fog had completely cleared.

Learning of the day: Always look at the menu before being seated at a restaurant that is new to you. (I don't have time to write about why, but I think you can guess.)
