Over the weekend our friends Markus and Charlie came up north from Encinitas for a visit to the City by the Bay. They haven't been up north for about 5 years, so it was long overdue! It was so great to see them, and I hope we can do it again soon!
First stop, Sushi Ran:
This was a magical roll that involved Copper River Salmon, spicy crab, some fancy, dried Japanese pepper and some other fantastic accoutrements that we were told would probably never be duplicated. We were sure to chew slowly and enjoyed every minute of it. (Of course in my attempt at being discreet, the poor quality photo, that clearly doesn't do it justice was taken with my camera phone.)
Walking back after dinner, Peter snapped a few less than desirable shots, but they make me laugh, as does he. (Nice focus Herb Ritts.)
Always time to stop for the classic self portrait.

Finally, one for the mantel
