What a wonderful view of San Francisco!
What a great place to begin our visit with my son to celebrate his 50th birthday.
The very first thing we did after leaving the airport was to visit Bernal Hill. I had been there before, so I knew what the view was like...and it's the neighborhood my son lives in...so, I felt Kelly had to see it first. It's so beautiful!!!
And, here are Scott and Kelly....taking in the view.
See, it's a beautiful view of the city
And, you can see different parts of the city as you go around the hill. It was really windy that day and the walk up is steep, so I had to work hard to get there. Worth it though. Click on these to make them larger and you will see lots more.
Boats in the distance.....it feels like the world at your feet.
Chilly too, while it was over 100 back home! (And, the fog coming in...I'll talk more about that in another post.)
Once again taking photos. If I lived at his house, not too far below this hill...well, I'd never get a thing done because there is a great view from his living room window. You'll see it.
One of my favorite things about San Francisco is the FOG. It's beautiful and it feels good too.
Kelly is going to get a good dose of it right here.
Ok. If you were on the street looking at the front of Scott's house....these places would be to the left. As a matter of fact, I took this photo looking out the side window of his kitchen. I love that big house with the blue door. The door looks really small, but it's not.
And these places are facing the back of his house...so if you sit out there on his deck, this is what you see. It's fascinating. I don't know how they figure out what electric lines go where. (That's probably the Old Navy Man talking to me.)
So, if you are on Scott's deck and look to the right....this would be two of his neighbors.
Just had to throw this in....there are more succulents in SF than I have seen anywhere. This one was small....but it's HUGE now. It's at least a foot across!
See it next to Scott. HUGE!
And, here are my two kids. I love seeing them talk like this as it doesn't happen very often these days. Precious hours!!!!
So, here is the view from Scott's living room. You must click to see larger...it's a wonderful sight.
And, there is something going on morning, noon and night. I'd really never get a thing done for looking out all the time!
He, evidently, has grown used to the view....like most people these days....looking at that phone. (I do too much of it myself.)
And, here he is with his sister....now on the computer. I love listening to them chat about whatever they are looking up.
Another photo of the living room. A sunnier day.
And, here is his house. Well, his and his three roommates. It is a four bedroom house. The living room, where you saw that gorgeous view is at the top, along with the kitchen. Bedrooms, and bathrooms, on two levels along with the garage on the first floor. They pay dearly for it and at this point in time are lucky to have it. Rent in SF is way crazy, and I do mean WAY!
And, here we are having a lovely breakfast. At a tiny old restaurant....has about eight tables. They serve a really good breakfast!!! And, oh, what fun....breakfast with my two. It's a privilege, for sure.
More coming soon about the trip and other things too!
until next time,
