Places my Altoid Tin dragged me to, in San Jose, CA.

My Altoid Tin, My Beloved and I went to San Jose last week and here are some of the places we went and things that we did.

Outside of the Clarion Hotel, San Jose.

Complimentary breakfast at The Island Grill.

Making friends at The Island Grill.

Hanging out with friends, by the pool.
The Clarion Hotel, San Jose Airport was a delightful surprise. On site restaurant, room service, spacious well lit lobby in which one can knit, read or just have a cup of coffee. The food, both room service and in the restaurant, was delicious.
Hanging out with Otis, the Yarndog at Yarndogs in Los Gatos.

Yarndogs is a must see when you are in the Bay area. Wonderful yarn, helpful staff and Otis, the Yarndog. No-one batted an eyelash at our request to photograph Otis posing with My Altoid Tin.

A wonderful time was had, by all.

I love Altoids (the original mints, not the other flavors) and have a tin sitting here in front of me right now!

My teenager is ga-ga over penguins too, so I had to drop by when I saw your moniker.

It's kismet, I guess, eh? ;)

I want to turn tins into small amusements that can be left in waiting rooms of clinics and hospitals. Each tin would include activities such as; crayons and paper, sewing, small paint kit, small weaving kit with instructions...
