Good Times with a Blog Friend

 
Yesterday I had the great good fortune to get together with Jacky (of the Scrappy Jacky blog) and her family. We had met once before in London. This time, we met in San Francisco and did a terrific tour of the murals in the Mexican Mission District. We stopped in a playground for a photo opportunity. We posed on a feathered serpent named Quetzal Coatl.

 
Among the beautiful details of the mosaic sculpture included a dedication.

  
 
It reads "The Gifts of Quetzal Coatl." It seemed appropriate because the whole day truly felt like a gift!

Gorgeous mosaics, how fun to get to meet Jackie. I've enjoyed meeting many blog/internet friends and it is always such a nice experience.

Those murals and tilework are gorgeous. I must write down these places for next October (2016) when we're in San Francisco for a few days before a Panama Canal cruise. Love going there but it's been a few years.

I'm trying to catch up on my blog reading.
