While in Golden Gate Park, we stopped by the Conservatory of Flowers, because there's nothing I love more than some super bright exotic flowers. Delicious!
The next day we went to our beloved Berkeley campus and reminisced about our glory days there - luckily the weather was PERFECT and there was nothing to ruin our beautiful dream... except the fact that the Cheeseboard is closed on Mondays! No pizza for me! We took a bus up to the rose garden and smelled all the flowers there - we really are plant people. And it's such a quintessentially Berkeley place for me - I used to run up to and past the Rose Garden every week for almost all four years. I love the Berkeley hills!
Next we took a train down to Lompoc where we hung out with James's family. And what is a trip to Lompoc without a little visit to Jalama beach...
Then we headed south for a short stay in San Diego before flying back to reality. We patrolled for pirate ships in a little sailboat in Mission Bay. Arrr. All we saw were divebombing pelicans having lunch.
