Laurel's Visit


Laurel & Jesse
Originally uploaded by Katherine Donaldson.
Back in January Laurel visited San Francisco for Macworld, and we drove up to hang with her for an afternoon. Meant to post this picture then, but it got lost.

We had a nice lunch at Ali Baba's Cave Cafe on Haight St., and then walked through Golden Gate Park to the Japanese Tea Garden. It was nice, but crowded and smaller than I was expecting.

Laurel dropped her lens cap of a balcony, then went to ask a person at the gate if it was okay to jump the short fence at the bottom to retrieve it. He said he would call the gardener, picking up the phone, and she should run back and get it while they had them on the line, so they couldn't catch her. Was it a joke? We don't know, but Laurel successfully retrieved her lens cap. :-)

Then we had a nice tea, Laurel's Oolong was nicer than our green Jasmine, and finally took a whiny "Why, why am I not asleep right now!!!" Rebecca home.

Hehe. :-). I literally started running when I realized, "Wait a second..." I don't know why, but I'm always absolutely terrified of offending the Japanese.

Nice photo - thanks for posting it. I really need to get off my duff and post the photos I took. They're mostly done at this point, so I have little excuse other than to click "upload"... :)

Heh. You do know why, it's because you have studied the culture and bought into their memes. I'd a done the same thing probably. None of my other photos were worth posting... so I didn't. Go click upload. Slacker. :-)
