San Francisco !!!

On our way home in March 2015, we headed north to the bay area.  Laurie has an old school friend, Linda, who lives across the bay in Alameda. ("Where they keep the nuclear wessels" as Chekhov would say in Star Trek IV).  It was a short stop-over on our way home.  We spent the evening at Linda's with her, her husband, and her son.  The next day we went into San Francisco, and early the next morning we left for home.  The day was overcast and hazy.  This is typical for the bay area.  It was a great day to get an overview of both Alameda and San Francisco.  We walked along a few of the streets, spent some time in Chinatown, Little Italy, Coit Tower, Washington Square, and Lombard Street.

The architecture in the town is incredible and beautiful from older buildings including the Saint Peter and Paul Cathedral to the modern Transamerica building. We plan on returning to this city and getting a closer and more detailed look next year.
