City Views Country Dreams had a post last week showing beautiful dahlias; so I decided to use the dahlia pictures from a trip we made to each of the Canadian Maritime Provinces some years ago.
la crème de la crème.

Books, food and airplanes in Alameda" my eldest daughter who was in the area for business meetings visited my two grandsons - her nephews - and me during the week-end we were on Alameda Island. On Friday evening we went to a Lithuanian restaurant in Alameda. On Saturday my daughter and her fiance decided to take my two grandsons to the Exploratorium Museum near Fisherman's Wharf in San Francisco. The museum site indicates that "The Exploratorium is a museum of science, art, and human perception ... We create tools and experiences that help you to become an active explorer: hundreds of explore-for-yourself exhibits; a website with over 50,000 pages of content ... etc." Their stated mission is to change the way the world learns. The Exploratorium is the brainchild of Frank Oppenheimer (1912-1985,) an experimental physicist and university professor. It is a huge museum. Wikipedia has detailed information on this museum - click here to access it. (Two photos of Exploratorium below courtesy Bruce Damonte.)
