This is for Belinda of Busy Mind Thinking. She’s asked to see where her WordPress family lives…
Hi Belinda ♥ I live in Mountain View, Ca – about half an hour or so south of San Francisco – in the heart of Silicon Valley. We are about 45 minutes, or a nice drive (over some hills and through redwood forests), to the Pacific Ocean. There are wonderful foothills surrounding us – great redwood forests and fantastic hiking. It’s lovely and green and hilly here. In the hills, near us about mid-way to the ocean – there actually is an Alice’s Restaurant!
I had to come back and put this picture – above – in for y ou… Alice’s Restaurant!
This- above – is the view from our condo balcony. Redwoods and one of the few remaining empty parcels in the city. Very lovely and peaceful
Above is the general area.
This – above – is Shoreline Park. We walk there several times a week. Lovely little lake with paddle boats and a cafe. Paths leading to the Bay. It’s a bird sanctuary sort of place – a gazillion kinds of migrating birds all year. You can see the foothills and these surround our area.
Another Shoreline Park one I thought would make you smile!
Above is Google. Mountain View is home to Google. Aren’t we the lucky ones? LOL! Facebook headquarters are about 15 minutes away. Oh joy 😛 Yahoo, Intel, etc.
Above is our downtown street – Castro Street. We can walk there to the cafe for coffee and to the farmer’s market and one of the few remaining bookstores in our area!
Above is Stanford Law School. I’ve recently retired from there. I was an admin there. It’s about 15 minutes from us – just up the street towards SF.
This is SF Haight Ashbury area…we hang out there several times a month for a coffee and a lazy day.
Golden Gate Park…another hangout near Haight Ashbury.
I hope all is well with you, Belinda. I’ll try to catch up better tomorrow 🙂 Many hugs and well wishes and tons of smiles
