More Shana Tova

Sunday, September 24th, 2006

We hope everyone had a good time, and will continue to do so next year. Ron went to hear the Shofar in Beit Knesset and covered his ears just to make sure it wasn’t too loud.

Sunny / Cloudy San Francisco

Tuesday, September 19th, 2006

What a difference a week makes. We visited the city (what locals call San Francisco, not San-Fran, or other abbreviations) 2 weekends in a row. One Sunday was cloudy cold and utterly un-fun. The next weekend was heavenly. Click on the images below to discover what we did each time.

Belated – Labor Day Weekend in Redwood Country

Monday, September 18th, 2006

Sorry for this rather late post (3 weeks late…)

We took a 4 day holiday on Labor day weekend and drove up to Redwood country in Northern California. We almost reached the border with Oregon. There are several parks that are part of the Redwoods National Park. Near Crescent City we visited Jedediah Smith Park (it’s a fun name to roll around your tongue. Try it…Jedediah…). South of Eureka is Humboldt Park. Also Avenue of the Giants which is a great scenic hiway going through redwoods. We even found a tourist ripoff place where you drive thru a redwood tree (quite tight with a minivan, actually). The kids behaved great, considering that on the first day a forest fire on highway 299 created a six hour detour for us. By the time we reached the motel that evening we were seriously considering going back home. But the trip got better from the second day, as you can see from the many pictures. The views of giant redwoods, scenic shores and cliffs, elks, and 4 days non-stop of “The Sound of Music” soundtrack made this a most memorable and musical weekend. One of My favorite Things…
