Today is the last day on this end of the bookend for a while. It will be good to get back home to the Land of Smiles; home to family, friends, and warmer weather. Had a good holiday season visit here in California, but is just not like being at home. In a few hours, I will heading off to the airport and taking that ride back home on the silver bird.
Spent the last couple of days shopping, but I did have a chance to have one final outing yesterday. Always wanted to visit the Ritz Carlton at Half Moon Bay. They have a spectacular golf course set along the coast, very similar to Monterey. Did not get a chance to play however. They also have a couple of great restaurants that overlook the ocean and the course that is perfect for a lunch outing. It was a chance to take out Velda after getting her steering redone. In both cases (lunch and Velda), it turned out very nice indeed.

The weather was perfect as it was clear along the coast while it was fogged in elsewhere. What is little known is that the best time to visit the coast along the SF Bay area is winter time. Its the time when there is the highest chance of sunshine as the summers are almost always fogged in.
Anyway, back to packing and maybe will post some more when I get into Taipei.
