We took advantage of the low airfares and visited San Francisco last week. As it worked out we picked a good week to go since Portland had the "Storm of the Century". We only had one day of rain in San Francisco and we picked that day to visit the Museum of Modern Art.
Here are some photos of our trip.
The Golden Gate Bridge.
I went a little crazy with the row house pictures!
Most of these are from the Haight/Ashbury neighborhood.
They are so cute but besides needing a lot of money to buy one, we noticed a lot of contractors working on them.
Ah, the details!
And the colors!
They look like little doll houses.
Love the curved windows on these homes.
I really love how bright the houses were painted. Purple, pink, yellow, blue; these colors look good on a row house.
Of course, all white looks good too.
As you can see the weather was pretty nice for wandering around taking photos of people's homes.
Seriously, how do you curve glass?!
We took in a little shopping in the neighborhood as well.
I loved how there were so many open air produce markets all throughout the city.
Wish I could have flopped down in a sunny spot for a rest about then too!
What's a trip to San Francisco without a trolley picture?
Of course we had to get some Ghirardelli chocolate!
Like Portland, San Francisco has it's homeless problems.
We spent a lot of time walking around the city.
We had major pepper envy over these! Our peppers didn't do so well this summer.
Our last day there we hit a farmer's market and craft show on the pier.
