The journey: part two

A huge plus as a result of the closure of the Bay Bridge is that our arrival in San Francisco was via Marin county and the Golden Gate Bridge. Somehow it seems terribly appropriate to drive into SF on that bridge and it utterly lived up to expectations. Today was a glorious sunny day with not a cloud in the sky. This may happen a lot round here and doubtless I will get bored by the good weather but right now, WOW! Not a cloud in the sky and it is a very big sky.

How utterly fabulous is this? Oh all right, the picture is rubbish but you get the idea.



Oh and an afterthought. A picture of our lives packed in the back of the truck.



That's it. There is an awful lot of shopping to be done in the next few weeks. Let's hope chair choices aren't as difficult as mayonnaise or orange juice.

Glad you have arrived safely. More adventures and discoveries around the corner I think.

I'm entirely fascinated by the account of your journey and the process of settling in, and am looking forward to regular bulletins on your new life in the States. A valuable insight into another way of life without having to leave the comfort of my sofa!

Have been wondering how it went. I so identify with the supermarket shopping. I used to visit an aunt in Boston from time to time and just couldn't cope with the paralysing amount of choice!
