After a trip to San Francisco several years ago, I noted that the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge would be considered the signature bridge in most cities, but it is second to the majestic Golden Gate Bridge. The Bay Bridge with its two back-to-back suspension bridges is majestic and beautiful in its own right. Now, an [...]

I have one regret from my 2007 trip to San Francisco — I didn’t drop everything and get to the Golden Gate Bridge the day I arrived, when it was sunny. Nevertheless, seeing it from the Wharf at Sunset was breathtaking, as was seeing it up close, driving on it, walking on it on a [...]
One of the things about our December San Francisco trip I forgot to mention was Bushman. He’s a street performer in Fisherman’s Wharf that pretends he is a bush and scares people. He is the subject of numerous youtube videos. Here is one I stumbled on last night.

Nearly three weeks after the fact, over 600 photographs and a couple dozen blog posts later, I’m going to “say goodbye” to the city by the bay. We had a great trip out there and thank David for hosting us.

MILL VALLEY, Calif. — On day 3 of our San Francisco trip, David drove us out to Muir Woods National Monument. We went for a short hike through the redwoods and comprehended their enormous size. They are big and the woods were dark and damp. I think going there on a sunny day would [...]
Generally speaking, I had to either spend the night or sit down for a meal somewhere for it to qualify.

SAN FRANCISCO — We stopped by Coit Tower, which may or may not be the world’s largest concrete fire hose nozzle, on our second day of the trip. We took a cab, driven by an American oddly enough, up Telegraph Hill and took in the excellent views. After we had enough of the parking lot, [...]
SAN FRANCISCO — Throughout our trip, we relied on mass transit to get around. Our first ride was on BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit), a third-rail powered train that functions more as commuter line than a traditional urban subway. BART serves San Francisco International Airport directly and stops within several blocks of David’s apartment in [...]
SAN FRANCISCO — A few years ago I had a page called BALLPARKS I HAVE SORT OF BEEN TO1? It was a collection of photos of me standing in front of MLB stadia that I had never seen a game in. At one time there were six, but I have since been to RFK Stadium [...]
SAN FRANCISCO — I can now say that I have been at both ends of Interstate 80. We jumped on it from US 101 at its western terminus for our brief jaunt to Treasure Island. I have been to the eastern terminus at I-95 in New Jersey several times. By the way, I think the [...]
