Back from my U.S. Tour 😜 visiting good friends, eating amazing food and drinking tremendous wines and fancy drinks!
Inspired conversations, observations- visiting the Academy of Sciences in San Francisco (it’s been well over 25 years!).
The Skulls exhibit was impressive, and of course the aquarium. 🙂
AND we spent an afternoon in the Botanical Gardens (panorama below). There’s a lovely redwood grove there (southwest corner) where I spent at least an hour immersed in the Douglas Fir bark (inspiration towards the Etsy Metal charm swap!)
Our final day in San Francisco I took Andrei across the GG bridge into Marin. Pronounced Merr-in 😉
Showing him where I grew up, went to high school, the redwoods, we drove out to Point Reyes and hung out on the beach for a bit, making kelp horns.
Oh yeah! Glass pancakes… What’s that about? Well, when I returned to my nano-studio I mixed up a batch of glass powders. ….to be continued..
