9AM - Thanksgiving
We are heading north out of Santa Cruz today. Bound for the neighborhood where the family will celebrate Thanksgiving. The plan is to spend two days in the San Ramon, Dublin, Pleasanton area so that we will have time to have a good visit.

As we type up this blog post, it is rainy here in Santa Cruz. And a bit chilly too. But this weather has not much bearing of our enjoyment of this part of the trip. Because we are protected from weather by our lodging.

We have been going for breakfast the past two mornings at Santa Cruz Diner. But this morning we are going to Harbor Cafe because this restaurant has the best rating for breakfast! We are getting soooooo spoiled!

8PM - Lincoln
Pretty close to Four Points Sheraton Hotel where we are staying is the Regal Cinema, where is playing the Steven Spielberg directed movie, "Lincoln". This is a movie that I have been looking forward to seeing. What a movie! Like traveling back into time and watching history unfold.

The story, in case that you did not know, chronicles the time when the 13th Amendment was coming to a vote to a abolish slavery in the United States. The movie ends on April 15th, 1865 when Abraham Lincoln is assassinated.

In the theater, many of us clapped in tribute to this great man who died 147 years ago.

Lite rain
