if you're going to san francisco...

... make sure to bring a jacket and a scarf cause while it may look bright & sunny, it is deceiving! The wind, OMG no one warned me about the wind *brrrrrrrr* As a result, we all came back from SF with colds lol Anyhoo, had a great time with faninohio and her nephew. Would love to go back some day -- visit Muir Woods, the Sonoma/Napa region even though I don't like wine, the sea lions at the Wharf, Golden Gate Park, walk through Haight-Ashbury.



View of the city from the Twin Peaks


View of the city + Bay Bridge from the ferry


Cable car!


Entrance to Chinatown


City hall


Transamerica Building (ie that really tall pyramid-like building)


A mini-redwood forest besides the Transamerica building


The pretty, colourful Victorian houses of Haight-Ashbury





Golden Gate Bridge. Apparently we were quite lucky as the area had been getting quite a bit of fog days before.


Alcatraz

SF is a city I have wanted to visit for a looooooooooooooooooong time (child of the 60s here, lol, Streets of San Francisco fan). Great pics- I especially like the wee redwood forest beside the big shiny tower. You must've had a fantastic trip.

So jealous! Even though I've been there a half-dozen times, it's never enough. My friend used to live in an old Edwardian place in the Lower Haight- so cool!

Yes, you must go back and wander Golden Gate park! Waterfront, ponds, the Exploratorium, etc etc!

Did you track down the Charmed and Party of Five houses? Hee.

Did not track the houses. I knew about Charmed but not Po5. And the Full House house is there too, I think.

The Charmed house is in LA. Even though the tour guide told us otherwise, we looked it up online and Zach discovered it was on LA and NOT the green house the tour guide told us was that house. :)
