Happy 4th of July!

On the 4th, we made some new Los Altos friends. Vic Blanding showed us his world-class train collection.

After a party where we had to flee before our kids utterly melted down, we watched fireworks from the hills overlooking Santa Clara County. Pre-meltdown photo of Dane and Reid by Wayne Willis, aka Vidtel Chairman.

Saturday we went to Sausalito for lunch (in Marin County, just over the Golden Gate Bridge) and visited with friends who are now living in Kenya and Ethiopia. Sausalito has exquisite views but is very crammed with tourists on the weekend. Reid and I took the ferry to San Fransisco. Reid practices yoga on the Embarcadero.

Dane and Scott met us there and we drove down the crookedest street (Lombard) – view from the top:

Yesterday I found some buried treasure at Santa Cruz (about 40 min. away):

Dane had fun bodysurfing.

Boardwalk amusement park rides before heading home.

Anyone want to come visit?
