San Francisco Here We Come

Sunday, September 27th, 2009

We have been looking an places to live in the city this weekend. The first place we looked at was a beautiful loft with a great view of the city. We fell in love with the place and are now working with the owner on renting details. I’ll post some pics when I get some. Also I will keep everybody up to date with the address change.

Zip Line Adventure

Friday, September 18th, 2009

So we did the zip line adventure yesterday. I thought it would a little frightening, but it was not. You are basically in a seat harness which gets attached to your cable wheels. Once you are hooked onto the zip line you only have to walk off the edge and soar across to the landing platform. The average height was 125 ft. And the longest run was 1125ft. We did 8 total zips and it was totally worth the money spent. I’ll have to figure out how to post the video I took while doing one of the zip lines when I get home.

Another Day of Fun

Thursday, September 17th, 2009

Last night was an early night for us. We went to an incredible sushi restaurant, and went for the early bird special because everything ordered between 5:30 and 6:00 is 25% off. We came back to the resort and had Mai Tais and deserts. The Mai Tais here at the resort have been the best so far. Today we are doing a zip line tour. There are a total of 8 zip lines. We will do 4 and then have lunch on top of a tower platform then do the remaining 4. I’m a little frightened by hights and I’m hoping this will get me over my fear. We will see…

Yesterday’s Dive

Tuesday, September 15th, 2009

The dive yesterday was very nice. The first dive was at a wreck. It was at 90 feet of water and still in good shape. There was a lot of coral, and we did see a Sting Ray on the way down. There was a tourist submarine that came around which was kind of cool to see. The second dive was only in about 30 feet of water. It was an old pier the was destroyed due to poor design. It has become a great start to a reef. There were many types of coral living on it, which daws a lot of different fish to the area. We had spotted a giant sea turtle, which in turn spotted us. It swam very close by Scott and then headed directly for me. I watched him come straight at me thinking he was going to headbutt me. At the last second he he pulled up a little and brushed over my head as he swam on. Very cool!
We went to dinner at a nice place called The Plantation House. Scott had a very special dinner companion, a small lizard crawled up him and took up residency on his arm. I managed to catch it and release it back outside. Got many looks from the surrounding tables.
Today is a relaxation day. No plans. Pool, beach, reading, and a whole lot of nothing. We might schedule the 5 zip line tour for latter in the week, but that is all we plan on doing today.

Life is Good

Monday, September 14th, 2009

Another night of sleeping to the sound of the ocean. We have sheduled to go diving this afternoon. It is a 2 tank dive, the first is a wreck about 90 feet under water, and the second is a reef dive. We have dove here before, but never these sites. This should be good since the water visibility is usually 100 ft here. Yesterday we did not do much but lay around in the sun. In the afternoon we watched the Bears/Packets game which was fun because our friends Rick and Dave are also originally from Chicago.
