All is well here, I have just been busy with other things. The last few days at Pier 8 with Mohammed and Sami, Sarah and I and the last few days of the wonderful shuttle bus.
Here are a few shots from that time.

It is interesting to note that along the edge of the peer, there is a rusted metal, fairly wide wedge to step on. The big boat, had engine troubles and the little Hamiltonian boat came to help them. They were unable to go out on the planned tour due to this problem. I believe that the people got part of their money back if not all.

The sunsets at Pier 8 are indescribably beautiful. I saw one that almost brought me to tears but unfortunately I did not have my camera with me. My camera is a nice one, but it could not have done justice to the sunset over the water.
The only unfortunate part of Pier 8 is that there is very little shade so during the heat of the day, it is not possible to go down there for me at least.
In a few more days, I will start going down to my other favourite spot and take lots of pictures there.
I also hope to take some pictures of a famous garden here within a few days and post them.
I may even go and take some pictures of statues at another location.
We'll see. The temperature is too hot for me - tomorrow will be 100 degrees F.
On another note, this week I was invited to Ken and Jody's place for a BBQ but it rained so instead we all enjoyed Chinese food and chatted. Jody was here just for a short while. She is looking well.
Ava, the dog, growled at me but then remembered me and was all right.

We had a lovely visit and I took the 7:15 bus back to down town.
Thanks for dropping by.
