Just got back from a 7-night cruise (San Francisco, Santa Barbara, San Diego, and Ensenada). Great spa onboard (weekly pass). Won money in the casino. Had the best dim sum ever at Palette Tea House in San Francisco. Picked up a ton of Recchiuti chocolates at the Ferry Building. Walked State Street in Santa Barbara. Had lunch in Little Italy in San Diego. Finished with a phenomenal 90-minute massage in Ensenada (inexpensive place downtown). The highlight, though, was being at a covered bar on the top deck as we were leaving San Francisco. Foggy night. A little mist in the air. We passed directly under the Golden Gate Bridge. It was surreal.
Just some musings from an old guy...
