It was so cool to get to learn so much about him and see all his history, not to mention that the town he grew up in is real neat, chock full of a sense of community.
To cheer me up, we decided to plan a trip up to my dad's house, which is close by to several areas I've lived in my life.
Here's the mini-trip diary...
It was the captain's 50th birthday so
his wife brought everyone cookies!
Faja and Brutharrr had falafels waiting for us
when we got there, cuz they're awesome people.
(one of my all time favorites)
Drove to Santa Cruz.
Had acai bowls from The Brazil Cafe with a few friends
Coffee at Pergolesi's.
Boyfriend-Fellow got some sweet wolf socks.
Went back to Perg's and played some games in the shade.
A few more friends came...
Settled on Roasted Barley ice cream at the Penny Ice Creamery
(after many samples of course)
A few more friends came....
Then the whole group had lunch at The Saturn Cafe....
Boyfriend-Fellow and I headed up to the campus so
I could show him where I used to live and work.
Came home to join Faja for Thai food followed by massages.
Oooh la la!
Then us three played Bananagrams
Boyfriend-Fellow and I stayed up late playing Gubs.
Decided last minute to do something exciting and drove to
San Francisco to romp around the Ferry Building for a few hours.
What did YOU do this weekend?
