What We Did Today

We started the day with a delicious buffet breakfast at our hotel, at 8:00a.m., which really felt like 11:00 a.m. -- awesome.

Since this is my first time in San Fran, we decided to take a driving tour of the city.

Here I am at the top of the most crooked street in the U.S. You can see the crookedness much better from the bottom, but we stopped at the top, so that's the photo I have.

Here I am with Grandma -- age 95 and still going strong!

I snapped one of Dad when he wasn't looking.

I took 67 photos today (!) and since we have all seen photos of San Francisco, I'll try to be economical in my sharing.


The Castro

Aunt Gayle, Dad and me and the base of the Golden Gate Bridge

The Palace of Fine Arts, built in the early 1900's for a World's Fair -- This place is seriously gorgeous, and photos don't do it justice. I felt like I was in Italy or Naboo (Queen Amidala's homeland)

Aunt Gayle and me in Naboo

And finally:

San Franciscans LOVE their dogs, as evidenced by this three-part water fountain!


  1. Beautiful pictures! It looks like you're having a great time. What a cute picture of grandma too! My Nana is going to be 95 this year and still going strong as well! God bless em'! :)

  2. i love san francisco! great pics. did you do the alcatraz tour?

  3. Hi Sara -- No, we only did a 5 hour car tour. My family talked about going to Alcatraz, but we are all pretty tuned in to energies (spirits, residual emotional imprints etc.) and, all feeling more open than usual with the loss of my Mom, we opted to not go where we would surely absorb unwanted drosses. Pretty woo woo, huh? I would have gone if I wasn't with grandma (mom's mom, age 95) but I want to keep her around for a while, so no. When I go back someday it'll be at the top of my list!
