Due to the large amount of time we spend on the Project Mail Call charity that we operate from our basement, we have not entered additional postings or travelogues for many years. We hope to update this blog starting in mid 2015.
We will upload photos of the trip later, but so far all we have produced is a video of our electric bicycle adventure riding 20 miles across the Golden Gate bridge. See the adventure by clicking HERE.

Alison continues to enjoy the scenery of Northern California, driving down to Carmel, Monterrey and the Big Sur and hiking Point Lobos. Mary, Erin, Michael and Carolyn will be visiting Alison for a week soon.
With an elevation of 928 feet, Mount Davidson is the highest natural point in San Francisco, California, and is located near the geographical center of the city, south of Twin Peaks. Mt. Davidson's most notable feature is the 103-foot cross situated on the crest of the hill.
At 4 months old, Carolyn Elise, continues to explore her world; smelling flowers while on her Bumbo seat, exercising under her kick apparatus, blowing bubbles and raspberries, easting out, or watching Chobe the puppy. We get to watch her progress, but because we live a distance away, we missed her first rollover last week.
Last weekend, she was a perfect little lady for several hours during a wedding and reception up in the Georgia Mountains.
She is enjoying living in the city and is also exploring the area. On the left is a photo she took of the Golden Gate with her iPhone before she crossed over to Sausalito on her bike, about 20 miles in 2 hours.
On the right is another photo she took of a view west from Presidio Park while biking.
Below left is Baker Beach and below right is a view from Mount Tamalpais, in Tamalpais State Park north of San Francisco. Alison biked to the top, enjoying views back over San Francisco Bay and vistas out to the Pacific Ocean. It's a long way up that mountain.
She is on track for weight for her 9-week age and in the 83% decile for head size, which Erin hopes is due to a smart brain.
Carolyn loves her swing, tummy time and, of course, bottle time; but her favorite time is bath time. Cyber is always watching her, including at bath time. In fact, now Cyber gets in the large bathtub while Carolyn is having her bath in her baby tub.
