One good looking city!
Needed a fun day in the city with Green-Eyed Girl and WonderD
Perfect lovely weather to visit the Palace of Fine Arts
It was built to celebrate the International Pan-Pacific Exposition in 1915 and still draws a large crowd.
The architecture is still impressive.
Inside they have some info and pictures.
Like the Heinz 57 tower!?!
Celebration of the Ukulele
We had lunch in the Presidio
Fresh asparagus - wow - could not be more like spring.
Great view of the Marin Headlands and the bridge.
A quick walk takes you to the bayfront for great views of the city skyline. We could not have had a better day. The weather was amazing, people were pleasant, even the traffic was not a problem.
Walking out on the jetty takes you to the Wave Organ. I have been meaning to visit for years but didn't quite know where it is. Finally took the time to visit.
Those are listening tubes. The other end in placed in the water so you hear the waves. So neat! A bit weird for sure, I don't think there is anything similar in the rest of the world.
Up close you can see the choppy water of the bay.
But when you go up into the Headlands it looks so smooth! It has been a couple years at least since I've been to this section. Totally fantastic drive up to this view. I will put it on the visitor list.
Final stop at Ocean Beach and the Cliff House, which will get its own post. Great day! Great company!
