Our out-of-town guests are, once again, out-of-town, so that means our hosting and tour guide duties are over. We had a pleasant time exploring the Bay Area with our guests. It was Fleet Week last week and this past weekend, which meant the Blue Angels precision flight teams were loudly streaking across the San Francisco skies.We spent time on the East Bay (Berkeley, Oakland, Walnut Creek), drove down to Half Moon Bay for a delightful lunch by the ocean, hung out at Ocean Beach, walked around Golden Gate Park, and took a cruise to Alcatraz Island.We also took advantage of the great cuisine San Francisco has to offer. And we even threw in a minor California earthquake while they were here. All in all, it was a fun, albeit exhausting, week.
As to blogging, I was able to schedule my daily FOWC With Fandango prompts in advance and to publish a few other random posts during the week our guests were here. I tried to read and respond to your comments, but, for all intents and purposes, I ignored my Reader, which meant I didn’t read most of your posts over the past six days. No doubt, I missed some great ones. I will try, once again, to get back into reading everything that shows up in my Reader from those of you I follow.
My stats did take a bit of a hit during my week as a tour guide, but that’s to be expected, I suppose, as I wasn’t nearly as prolific during the period as I usually am.But I guess that’s to be expected. Fewer daily posts equals fewer daily views.
Anyway, I had a great time with our houseguests, but I really did miss you guys.
