    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.

    You’re in paradise. Blow off the bumpers and hit the Hunan Restaurant on Sansomme St. Ask for the Marty Special, the pot stickers and the onion cakes. Seriously.

    A suggestion:

    If you have never done it, consider driving across the Golden Gate Bridge into Marin County, and motor up a bit along the coast to Muir Woods, a national monument and park where you can take a short, level ground walk of about a mile through the through one of the most beautiful and breathtaking forest of trees that you may ever see . . . the Coastal Redwoods.

    There are regular shuttles running back and forth from the park to and from a few locations further out because of the limited parking availability at the park itself, especially during the summer months.

    Also, there are a slew of vineyards and wineries out that way, any one of which I am sure would make for a great “refreshment” stop while in the area.

    You should have been there in the early 1960’s before Haight/Ashbury. When I was in high school (graduated in 1963) we used to drive to “The City” with our dates (opposite gender) for a show or dinner.

    It was always just called, “The City”. I miss it.

    The summer off from work … on a trip to a scenic city to see your little girl … life doesn’t get much better than that! Have a great time!
