Last month we headed to my childhood town of San Francisco and spent five wonderful days, touring the city as well as attending a SF Giants baseball game. I was born in the city but hadn’t had the chance to return since I was a teenager. There is SO much to do in this city and here are just a few pics of my trip.
A lovely marina right by the ballpark.
AT & T Stadium – home of the San Francisco Giants
Jeremy Affeldt on the pitchers mound!
Love this! Isn’t this what life is all about? Of course there is a debate as to who is weirder – my husband or myself. 🙂
An old church built in 1851.
Front of the church – love the aged patina on the doors!
A view from Alcatraz Island.
Another view from inside Alcatraz.
Lombard Street was on my “must see” list.
Merry go-round @ Pier 39 – I remember riding this as a little girl.
Ghirardelli Ice Cream Shop @ Ghirardelli Square. They have some very yummy stuff!
The infamous San Francisco Trolley. We finally caught a ride on one near the end of our visit!
A view of the skyline. The tower seems to just disappear in the clouds.
A lovely little park across from our hotel.
And of course….the beautiful, awe inspiring Golden Gate Bridge.
San Francisco is truly a breathtaking city. Is there any wonder why it was hard to leave? We had such a fabulous time and could have easily stayed for another week.
I promise not to let another 30 years go by without another visit to you, my beautiful city!
