Journey of a body on this earth

Pelican Pose


I am so excited.  Finally I got out for a drive with my husband on Saturday and it was a glorious day.  It was a pleasant surprise that I was able to get around a little bit.   Hurray for progress!

We drove over to the north side of the Golden Gate Bridge and there was an ambassador there to great us.  He was a bit of a ham for the camera, don’t you think?
