Fall is coming. The temperatures are dropping at night and the days are shorter. By December we will have days where it will be dark when you leave for work and dark by the time you get back. On the bright side, our summer nights are short and the days are long. When we get snow for the first time, I am generally happy for it. However, I would be fine if, after a week, it melted and we went back to 70 degree days. By January, if not mid-December, I will be ready to California Dream.
So, despite my ability NOT to wait for it, here are a couple pics of San Francisco. Specifically, the view from the top of Lombard Street, here:
And the Conservatory in Golden Gate Park, here:
It is one of the prettiest cities I have ever been to. If there is another one better, then I have not been there. I suspect San Diego is almost as good, but I do not know for sure. I miss seeing the things in California. I liked having so many things so close. Roseville was only thrity minutes away and was such a nice place to go shopping. They had almost everything there.
We travelled to San Francisco several times while we lived in California. We took all the family members who came to visit us there. We especially liked entering the city from the north. That meant driving through Sonoma, Napa, and Marin. Then through the tunnels and viola, there was the Golden Gate Bridge.
So, sometime this winter, I will probably be looking at these and wishing. Oh, now you people in AZ, don't feel so bad. If you had a beautiful BAY like this, I'd like you TOO! LOL!!
