A few technical difficulties…here’s today’s post!

Today was my 2nd time taking the Ferry from Vallejo to SF which, so far, has been an absolute delight. Getting up at 5am isn’t my dream come true, but it’s so worth it if I can return to Napa in the evening. Mandatory 7am work days are getting in the way of consecutive round-trips, but they’re on the horizon and I can’t wait!

For anyone who knows me, I like to be fully prepared for new things because I’m not a fan of uncertainty. Before my first ride I contacted a Facebook friend who commuted by ferry and asked him for tips. We hadn’t spoken in 20+ years, but that is the beauty of Facebook. I also did a test-run the day before to get the drive time down and then quizzed the ticket guy about where to park my car, line up, get ticket punched, etc…Preparedness!

Anyhow, I can’t help but think of Mom and how she’s getting a kick out of my public transportation adventures. After all, she’s the one that got me on a Muni bus for the first time! Here’s a link to a post about that and there’s a comment from her too. 🙂

And a few pics from this morning’s ride…Btw, It’s early when you’ve been up for 1 1/2 hours and the moon is still in the sky. Ha! Regardless, it’s so worth it!
