Seeing Jackie in San Fransisco was something we had planned for a while because in 2016 we did #1faceaday/#366Faces together on our #TeaBags. I am so grateful that we did. We only had 3 days together but it was so special. We connected deeply and quickly and our 3 days were fully about adventuring together. Jackie had planned so much for us and I'm so grateful. We all three did new things for the first time.
And doing this together just cemented our friendship.
Like taking a ferry to San Fransisco from Walnut Creek. Walking to the top of Coit Tower, going to the SF Moma and of course walking the Gold Gate Bridge. It was a beautiful precious time we shared together.
I'm so blown away about our time together and like with Phyllis and Chrissie, it felt like we had known each other forever. I guess it has something to do with sharing something as personal as our journey through paint, there is a natural vulnerability already there. I can honestly say that there was connection with just about everyone I got to meet in person.
I can never express what this meant to me.
Coit Tower - we climbed the steps through the private gardens to the top and then we went up the tower and we got to see gorgeous San Fransisco from the top, a 360 view of the city. It was breathtaking.
On our way down to the ferry, we popped into the San Fransisco MOMA.
One of my favourite images from our trip, Kitty in the SFMOMA. Poor Courteney was at home beside herself that we were in this incredible place. I knew that was going to be hard for her.
Port Costa, CA
Jackie arranged a visit to Port Costa, CA. The sweetest time warp of a town from another era but interestingly still standing. She took us to the Theatre of Dreams to meet Wendy Addison.
What a treat!
I'm not going to lie, I'm a little in love with SF. What a beautiful city. I think to fully grasp the extent of this remarkable place, one would probably need to live here a little. Jackie was amazing at navigating her way around. It was an amazing few days. I'm so grateful for this time, her family and everything.
