    If you’re wondering why things have been a little slow here, I’m in San Francisco visiting my daughter, who lives near this very tourist-y shot I took at Alamo Sq. Park:

    If I don’t get some really good bumper sticker shots here, I’m going to demand my money back.

    Was there a few years back……heck of a city, there so much to do within a couple hours drive. Ate at a great restaurant down in the wharf, Schomo’s (sp).

    You’re visiting at the right time. We had some chilly overcast days for the last week. Today was a beautiful mild sunny day with clear skies. My friends and family were up by UC Berkeley and could see the Golden Gate Bridge and Alcatraz all the way from the Lawrence Hall of Science at 5 pm. Usually the fog starts to slowly roll in around that time.

    I second the Muir Woods suggestion. Or take a drive down the coast a bit toward Half Moon Bay.

    Here’s second to the suggestion from superabsurdness | July 18, 2011 at 12:00 am to go to the Ocean Beach and the Chalet Restaurant.

    “The Beach Chalet Brewery & Restaurant is located above the Golden Gate Park Visitor’s Center which features the amazing and historic WPA frescoes created by Lucien Labaudt in the 1930’s.
    . . . . “

    The view of the Pacific is just wonderful there and because it is overlooking the Golden Gate Park, you could have breakfast there and combine it with a trip across . . . just sayin’ . . . .

    Ooops . . . here was the link for the Ocean Beach and the Chalet Restaurant
