I took a trip up to see my sister near San Francisco.

Lately, I've been so bad at taking pictures.  I just simply forget to.
I grabbed my phone and grabbed my sister who was working in the kitchen and snapped this one.  Wow!  It turned out great!!!
That's me on the left and Cindy on the right.  
We actually look like sisters.  When we were younger no one believed we were.  

We had to make the trip to SF so that Serena could meet up with the WYAM group.  They had a dinner for all the missionaries and to pick up her clothes. 

We took Serena's stick shift car.  

Wait - do you realize what I'm saying?

Hills - and clutching on those streets?
And NOT rolling back into the car behind?
It has been about 30 years since I drove a stick.  AND I did it here on hills like this without a single problem!  Whoo Hoo!!  I was so impressed with myself.  Hahaha

I love cities and all those cool building.
Like this one triangle one that is on a strange triangle corner.

And the bridges - which by the way I'm not afraid to drive over.

There's a lot of fun stuff to see as you are walking.
Like this heart. 
My two girls, Rosanna and Serena - and Sis Cindy.

Serena just came back from being a missionary trip in China, so Rosanna said we had to go to Chinatown in SF as not to be left out.  So off to Chinatown we went.  Oh my, the Chinese people loved Serena speaking to them in Chinese.  We had so much fun.  

We went to a little Chinese Cafe and Serena ordered our food.
 She showed us what she usually had for breakfast or lunch.  And told us all about life on the other side of the world.  The different ways they have from us - such as there are not lines. Can you imagine? People just push their way in, but they are not seen as being rude.  That they do not speak in tense - such as past tense, present tense and future. Which was very hard for Serena to communicate that she had already eaten.  Her Chinese friend kept trying to take her to eat.  lol
Rosanna, Serena and Cindy

So that's a bit of my trip.

Happy Stitching,
Linda - enjoying family and SF


  1. Oh I miss San Francisco so much...not the traffic, mind you, but the feel of that place! It's nice to see pictures of the city again. (I have been away from there for over two years now)
    Thank you for sharing your pictures, so glad you had a good trip!

  2. Your trip sounds like a whole lot of fun. I am impressed with you getting up those SF hills with no problems. Gorgeous photo of you and your really do look alike. Love looking at your photos, Linda.

  3. Sounds like Serena had a fabulous trip! And when I finally get to San Francisco, I'll have to get you to be my tour guide. I have a feeling that you 'girls' are all just a barrel of laughs.....

  4. Good Trip! So glad to see you doing fun things with your family! SF is such a fun place to visit. :-) Next time you come up, message me: I'm only an hour north. I'd love to meet you for lunch or something. Hugs, H in Healdsburg
