The Painted Ladies

My Last Day in San Francisco was dedicated to adding 4  1/2 more miles to my pedometer and walking the Pacific Heights Area to absorb the beautiful California weather and the gorgeous Victoria architecture.  This is the neighborhood of the elite and the gawking tourists.  Easily one can tell the difference.  Hope you enjoy my photos as much as I enjoyed my day….

SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA

My Traveling  Adiction happily took charge again and swept me off to San Francisco, California.  Home to hilly streets, cable cars, and a vast assortment of sights.  Traveling with my friend, Laura, we wasted no time jumping on a cable car to the loopy Lombard Street and then onto Fisherman’s Wharf, Ghirardelli Square, Pier 39 and the Maritime Museum.  Ghirardelli Square tempted us with sinfully delicious sundaes in an old soda fountain atmosphere.  The Maritime Museum was  great cheap entertainment where we explored 3 retired ships from the 1800’s,  a ferry (full of antique cars and trucks) a tug  and a cargo ship.  Pier 39 was a clever mecca of shops and restaurants with views of San Francisco Bay and Alcatraz.  We even witnessed some fools swimming in the bay and that water has to be cold because we were wearing fleeces and wind breakers!
