Photos From 2002 Vacation - San Jose, California

After a long summer helping out with the HealthSouth Training Center's Summer Skating Camp, I was ready for a nice break. So, off we went up North to visit our friends, Richard & Antoinette & their son Marshall, who happens to be just about ready to have his 3rd Birthday. We meant to drive up the coast & spend a day or two in hotels by the sea, but it was summer & we did not plan ahead, so we drove the long way up Hwy 1 & 101 in one night & arrived at like 3:30 AM. I do not recommend this as a relaxing way to begin your summer vacation.

We checked into a cheesy Ramada Limited that was cheap & had high speed internet access (love this century). We ate & watched skating videos & ate & watched bad science fiction movies & ate & I skated a little just to keep from panicking (didn't work too well, so I bought some port). And did I mention we ate? Anyway - it was relaxing & completely non-productive - unlike my usual vacation of masochists which involves going non-stop from dawn til dusk. So, here are the photos of my friend's wonder baby Marshall - Excuse me, wonder toddler. And some photos of their new kitty Alice too.
