The plan had been to ride a double decker bus, have lunch and then play in the Central Park fountain. None of that happened. It's final's week and no double decker buses were running. Must remember that for the future. At the AMTRAK station we consulted with the agent and decided to go to Suisun on the train. We had one hour to eat and get more money from the ATM. Next to the station, the Village Bakery serves pizza by the slice. So pizza for lunch. The train ride to Suisun from Davis is twenty minutes. We had an hour in Suisun. We walked along the marina to an antique store. It was hot, hot in Suisun. On the trek back to the train station Shae's feet were tired. She walked anyhow (not like there was a choice.) We boarded the train and waited in air-conditioned comfort for the buses from Martinez to bring Bay Area passengers. Work on the tracks between Martinez and Suisun made the bus transfer necessary. We were glad we had not decided to go to Martinez.
Shae spotted lots of jack rabbits on the journey back. She seemed disappointed when Cynthia missed seeing these wonders. There were cows and horses to get excited about and we soon arrived in Davis.
Ready for frozen yogurt we made our way to The Swirl yogurt shop and joined the line of high school and jr. high school students (fresh out of school for summer vacation) to order yogurt. Two blueberry yogurts, one with chocolate sprinkles and one green tea (I'm the one who likes green tea). As we enjoyed our yogurt, the line remained all the way to the door no matter how fast the two people dispensing the treat worked.
Back at Cynthia's house we talked with Terry. Shae and Cynthia went looking for Big, the cat. To Shae's delight they found Big under a bush in the yard. Shae changed into her swim suit and we drove to Central Park. Woe to us. A graduation event caused the fountain to be turned off. The thing I had forgotten was it is UCDavis graduation weekend and the population of Davis more than doubles--that includes the traffic getting out of town. By the time we got to the freeway, Shae was asleep for a thirty minute nap. At home it is dinner time and we agree to watch Shrek for the third time in two weeks. I think I've gotten most of the jokes now.
Now it's three hours until the Shae train leaves for Reno and at 8:00am she is still sleeping. I'd better get my shower and pack my stuff. Auntie Pea will be here between 11 and 11:30.
