Golden Bear in Port of Sacramento
It is a beautiful day in Sacramento and an important arrival came in this afternoon. The Golden Bear, a ship stationed in Vallejo that is the training ship of the California Maritime Academy came up the channel to the Port of Sacramento.
Why was I interested? One of our grandchildren got accepted to the Maritime Academy for Fall 2012. It is an impressive vessel and I just had to go see it. Wasn't necessary to climb aboard (which I don't know if it was possible today)but just had to be up close. A lot of Sacramentens had the same idea.
I have been fascinated by foreign languages since childhood. I pursued Spanish for many years and it led me to teach Spanish. Two of my grandchildrens first language is Japanese and that was a compelling reason to study Japanese. Among the friends I made studying Japanese, one brought me into the Mac world and all that that enriches so here I am pursuing a blog as a journal and as an album because I have been so taken with some of the food bloggers that I have read.
