SF: Friday night: Exploring the City


We're back from San Francisco! I took 339 photos in 48 hours -- it's going to take me all week to share them with you! (I promise I won't really post all 339.)

We arrived at my sister's late Friday afternoon, took a tour of her apartment/studio, and hopped on the muni bus to see some city!


Three Twins Organic Ice Cream Shop was having a free ice cream night in support of Friends of the Urban Forest -- so that was our first stop. Dessert first, of course!


Then we found a nice, kid-friendly pub for dinner...

I had a lovely organic lettuce salad with my eggplant parmesan. We must have passed five organic markets on our way to the pub. Evidence of the city's eco-consciousness was everywhere.


San Francisco weather is mild and damp, so I should not have been surprised to see the beautiful work of urban gardeners in every nook and cranny along the streets. We found a community garden with a waiting list reaching back to 2004!

I couldn't stop snapping photos...


Street art...


The boys just loved running down the sloping sidewalks...

Come back for more tomorrow!

I love that place. My husband's experiences there haven't been great, but I am determined to take him there and show him a good time. :)

I love your photos, and I have always loved SF! To see all of the "green" things you pointed out is really cool! My family lives in Napa, so I hardly ever stop in SF, but now I'm wanting to take the fam. there soon.
