Road trips are fun to go on occasionally. For longer ones, like to Reno, I do the driving so hubby can stretch his back but for short hops he drives. That allows me to take pictures of the interesting things we see as we go along, like the Oscar Meyer Weinermobile, which is huge, the castle hidden behind some trees, the snow on the mountains and our old friend the Golden Gate Bridge on our return home. We even saw Elvis in his pink Cadillac once. Of course sometimes we have to stop and take a break before we continue.
While I never went for ice skating, rollerskating is something I really liked to do. I even got myself a pair of skates. The old fashioned kind with four wheels, not rollerblades where they are all in a line like ice skates. Bill was a pretty good skater in his time too. We both enjoyed skating around the rink to the great music. I am not sure it would be such a good idea to do that now, even though my recent bone density scan shows that I have good bones. No sense asking for trouble, right?
And my final suggestion for a date is to go to a rooftop and check out the view. No pictures for that but I know that there are a lot of rooftop restaurants. In fact, there is a new one called Rooftop 25 that recently opened in San Francisco. I can remember going to the Top of the Mark when I was younger and while that wasn’t exactly outside on the rooftop, it was at the top of the Mark Hopkins hotel and the room would spin in a circle so you could see the whole city while you ate. We did have dinner on the rooftop at the Mountain Winery once but won’t do that again as we didn’t think it was worth the price.
Okay, that covers R. As I look in my draft folder I see there are less and less posts in there. We must be moving right along!
