The weekend of November 3rd was CWD Family Adventure Weekend in San Francisco! The weather was perfect - well, ok, a little foggy in the morning - and the company was wonderful. Families gathered Friday evening at the Marriott Fisherman's Wharf for conversation, snacks, and games. Saturday morning, we divided into The Walkers and The Riders, and we tackled the Golden Gate Bridge on foot and by bicycle! (Yep, it was chilly) We then explored Sausalito on foot, and found some interesting places for lunch, shopping, and people-watching. Lucky for us, after all that exercise, we were able to head back to the hotel via the Sausalito-San Francisco ferry! Saturday evening, we enjoyed dinner together at Fisherman's Wharf and explored Pier 39 with its wonderful shops and street performers. On Sunday, bright and early, we took the ferry around the San Francisco Bay and learned about the history of the area. Finally, on Sunday afternoon, we hiked through Muir Woods (the giant redwoods) and ended with a late lunch in Tiburon by the water.

What a wonderful weekend!

Many thanks to CWD staff Natalie Bellini, Jim Vail, and Chris Tull for crossing three time zones to be with our San Francisco families this weekend! And a warm welcome to Katie Daugherty, CWD's newest staffer, who joins us from the San Francisco area.

Finally, to LifeScan - our sponsor for this CWD Family Adventure Weekend - our warmest thanks and appreciation.
