Pigeon Point Lighthouse

Labor Day road trip for me and T! We went south. First stop Pigeon Point, which is beautiful and only about an hour away. I love that there's basically a four color limit to the palette. And I'm not kidding when I say it's prescription pill commercial heaven. There's an ad running right now of an older lady taking photos around the lighthouse as someone reads off side effects. ;-) This is also where we met Tocco's newest buddy. If you've never been to the lighthouse, you should definitely stop there. It's easy to get there from SF, and so simple and peaceful.

The Guys From Bremen

I've shared this elsewhere, but in case you missed it (hi Mom!)

This weekend Tocco noticed a pin of the Bremen, Germany (his hometown) flag in the cap of this old sailor. Turns out this man is from there too... but he had to leave Bremen for the US when he was 14 after his dad didn't return from the war. You should have seen the look on his face when Tocco told him he's from his hometown. :) They sat down together and enjoyed a nice long happy German conversation after that. Tocco said he's going to return another Friday and bring this man Labskaus, a recipe he said he misses most from home.
