Lombard Street

Lombard Street, the crookedest street in America, is full of 5 mph switchbacks and absolutely crazy tourists

The landscaping is simply beautiful...

And the residents are very friendly and inviting...even when we are taking photos of their neat dog gate. "John Smith" welcomed us into his courtyard for this close-up.

Seriously steep hills in this part of the city. This is from two blocks away from Lombard Street... switchbacks here.

SF Fun

I met up with my favorite sister this past weekend in San Francisco in part to celebrate our early birthday. We met up with Vince & Secret Baby Chan, Nicci & Glen, and Aunt Ruth & Marisa flew down too. It was fantastic to see everyone and spend some time in a totally beautiful and intersting city.

At the Palace of Fine Arts. From far away it looks like this magical golden dome...

...but when you get right up to it, there are all these sleeping people, lol.
