San Francisco, continued

Saturday began with a walk down the hill to Oakland's Saturday Market for fresh fruit and flowers.

An early afternoon ride on BART to downtown San Francisco to see the mixed repertory ballet (program notes here), followed by an excellent dinner & drinks at Soi Four.

Sunday consisted of more eating!  Brunch at The Claremont Resort followed by a nap. Then off to Teresa's friend Elizabeth's for a sister only dinner.

Lovely home & view
11 sisters gathered to meet 
Homemade pottery pendant necklaces
Charming placecards

Yummy food
Delicious (and abundant) red wine
Things began to get blurry

Such a fun evening!
