The trip: day one

I flew to Oakland, California (near San Francisco) last Wednesday evening. My girlfriends Sue & Teresa picked me up at the airport and took me back to Teresa's apartment where we drank sparkling champagne on the patio under the stars, and talked until 1 am.

Thursday we walked down to Lake Merritt to the bird sanctuary, taking in the sights and the sun.

Hey Harriet...this shot's for you!

Dinner at Mezze, (Yellow Fin Tuna Tartare served with avacado, cucumber, apple, pine nuts and a chili-truffle vinaigrette for me...mmmmm)  then off to the play (which was excellent). Another late evening talking until the early morning hours...

Late night talks for nights on end are one of my 'favoritest' things about being a girl. No one does it quite like good girlfriends! Nice pics.

Oh...I have girlfriends like that. Those long-term pick up right where you left off girlfriends. And the nights are never long enough to say it all. Lovely.
