A Little Work, Lots Of Play

Work then play in San Francisco

semi-overcast 70 °F

We made San Francisco, the weather was cold next to what we’d come from; 100+ in Bakersfield to high 60’s in S.F.

I made my claim meeting and laid out what would be paid for.

From the claim, we went straight to Golden Gate Park. Our goal was to have a good fast walk, getting the heart rate up, preparing for the upcoming backpacking trip, and just a good workout.IMG_201508..0656807_HDR.jpgIMG_201508..4153909_HDR.jpg

Well, Twinkle likes to smell everything along the path, so that took some time. Then I like to take photos and had the big Canon along, so that took some time. Poor Dale, always waiting!

We’d forgotten how great the park is. We found some trails up hills; we walked fast so we could get the heart rate up. Trails between ferns and flowers, trails between trees. What a wonderful park this is and we only explored a small portion.

We brought Twinkle back to the RV then went to dinner at the Russian Family Restaurant down in Redwood City. I’d found it on-line with good reviews. We drove down and found it in the center of the older section, an area revamped, full of restaurants, life and music. We found a table outdoors and ordered a bunch of Russian food: Borsch, beet salad, pickled herring. OMG, now we are ready to go off to Russia to eat. IMG_201508..0044969_HDR.jpg

So now there are hurricanes in both the Pacific and the Atlantic and I’m on vacation. How, pray tell, do I go on any kind of vacation when I could be called out at any time? So here is what I do: Packed; the work box, clipboard, flashlights, business casual pants, Crawford logo shirts, business shirts and shoes suitable for storm. If, in fact, a hurricane hits, I will buy a suitcase, pack, and buy an airplane ticket and leave. Dale will drive home, pack up the rest of the stuff and then either drive to where I’m at or fly (think Hawaii).

We are always ready to point the truck somewhere else, always have a contingency plan, or can make one up on the spot. The sign of a catastrophe adjuster who loves to travel!!!
