Going to San Francisco

Friday, May 16, 2014



I am making plans to spend part of the summer in San Francisco. I have a friend who lives there and when she goes on vacation she invites me to come stay at her apartment and care for her cat. That means 3 weeks in midtown SF in a rent-free apartment (with snuggly kitty) starting in late August. Isn't that a great arrangement?



I'm including this map to show you my fabulous location. I'm one block from California St. and Hyde. The cable car connects me with just about anywhere I want to go. I will have a transit pass for bus and cable cars so I'm all set.


Exercise is easy in San Francisco

I can take transit down to the Ferry Building on the Embarcadero and walk to Fisherman's Wharf. A lot of steps and beautiful scenery.


When the weather doesn't cooperate I can walk the labyrinth at Grace Cathedral on Nob Hill.


As you know, walking on San Francisco hills can be quite a challenge. I'm taking my walking poles along.


When I get tired of hills I can always go to Golden Gate Park.

I'll be able to eat well because I'll have a kitchen to cook in AND a brand new Trader Joe has just opened on California Street. Wow! This is going to work out well.

    emoticon I'm so jealous of you! lol Just kidding! Seriously though, I wish I could come along! I've only been to SF once when I was in grade school or maybe it was junior high (?). I loved it though and I definitely remember the hills as well as Fisherman's Wharf. Going to the cathedral and walking the meditation labyrinth sounds like a great way to get in your exercise if the weather doesn't cooperate. Even more awesome is that a Trader Joe's just opened up on California St. Have a great time! emoticon emoticon

    WOW! That's fabulous!

    I've been to SF many times when I lived in Sacramento. Fishermans Wharf, Lombard St, the GG Park...SO much to do & see!
    Have fun!

    Sounds like a win-win for both you and your friend. I also love SF but walking those hills would be a problem for me. I've never tried walking poles and in fact I've never seen anyone here using them. I should check them out. You're going to have a great time there and I wish I could join you my friend.

    Have a wonderful weekend.

    Hugs & Love,

    Jill

    Wow...such fun! I love San Francisco and to be in such a primo location is fantastic. I've not been to Grace Cathedral, so if I get to SF again, I'm going to make it a goal to visit there. Hope you enjoy every single minute! Hugs, Jeannie

    Sounds like a WONDERFUL trip! Ask your friend if she would like to spend a few weeks in Central Arkansas in a house in the middle of 10 acres on the edge of a mountain with a valley view. LOL Sounds absolutely FABULOUS, thanks for the photos!!!
