I found another cute looking fabric shop on google, Peapod fabrics, just south of Golden. Gate Park, but strike 2, they didn't open til 1. Boo! I took a few pics thru the window:
Golden Gate Bridge was spectacular....today was grey and a bit foggy, & I spent a long time just looking at it while the family ventured out to walk on it. I didn't have the mental fortitude to walk with them; the wind was howling & the traffic was so loud I just opted to gaze at it. In that time alone, I found my mind thinking of Ellen Benson as I was surrounded by tourists from around the world: she'd be snapping beautiful photographs.....
We drove a bit down the coast, stopping at the Cliff House, taking a group selfie with the
ocean in the background:
We're just a bunch of goof balls....
Things I've learned on this trip:
-- Siri has made my marriage better. I love this robot woman's voice. She has smoothly guided my husband to our destination, with minimal interruptions from me, who would have been trying to read a map to him. Thank you, robot voice woman.
-- traveling with 2 teenage daughters is like driving the streets of San Francisco: ups and downs. It's
anticipatory, exciting, don't know what's coming when you turn a corner, braking hard with frustration and laughing til your sides hurt with silliness & glee.
--HGTV is so fun to watch in hotels at night.
--I loved riding the Muni bus system. People stand up without hesitation when an elderly person gets on, and that person sits right down in the vacated seat. I love that.
-- seeing all the homeless people made me sad....& more so seeing the mental illness attached.
Tomorrow: Santa Cruz beach & boardwalk!
