Berkeley Roadtrip

 A bunch of random photos of our trip this weekend. Had fun window shopping and had a little time to check out a couple of stores. Mostly got Jason moved into his new home for the school year and spent the afternoon with relatives in Woodside and San Mateo.

 
 The Crate and Barrel Outlet had several bins of Marimekko fabric pieces for 25 cents each...couldn't resist picking up a few to play with. Jason shopped for things for his new home.

 
 Ici is the best ice cream spot in Berkeley. We each had to try some of the delicious flavors after our dinner at Tacubaya.
Jason and Justin in front of the Big Sky Cafe in San Luis Obispo on the way up.

 This is the Westminster House where Jason will be living while attending the University.

All nice photos Mary!!
But the last one WOW! I did not know about those 'crazy' knitters, till a while ago. My sun has an e-mail friend from Australia, she is very much in to it and wrote him about it, then he told me and we checked the internet. One can find a lot of photos and information there about it! Thank you for sharing that picture!

Nice surprise to find a Finnish word in your post. So Marimekko is known worldwide? Your sons still follow you on holidays? Lucky you, I miss that.
