When we finally landed in San Francisco it was cold, wet and foggy. Just like home I thought but it was San Francisco only. After a short night in the Motel we drove through the city out of town.
There was a traffic jam but not a serious one. We passed downtown without any problems and headed East towards Yosemite NP.

The Suburban was big enough to accommodate my Canon 6D in the center console. Impressive! But there is one disadvantage: Taking pictures means to poke through the viewfinder. Not the best idea while driving. That’s why I changed for the Fuji XP1 most of the time for drive shots.
When we left San Francisco the fog was gone. It was sunny and warm – just what you expect when you come to California.
If you fly around half of the world something happens. All your problems, your sad times and troubles are left behind. It’s magical. It was just what we needed after the worst time we had in our life so far. The death of my mother left us almost shattered. The winter seemed endless. There was no light at all. I had a break in March with my 2 weeks business trip in South East Asia but my wife had not seen a lot of sun in 2013 till we came here.
But here in sunny California all that seemed so far away. I fell in love with the USA on my first trip in 2010 and this year it was just about the same. This is a wonderful place for a vacation and I start to think that this is also a wonderful place to live.
