Walking 24 Willie Mays Plaza


One day a couple of months ago, I decided to walk around at 24 Willie Mays Plaza in San Francisco. The Plaza is named for San Francisco Giant great Willie Mays and is home to Oracle Park- The Home of the San Francisco Giants. It is a great walk and there some cool things to see:

Hall of Famer Orlando Cepeda
Hall of Famer Gaylord Perry 
Hall of Famer Juan Marichal

For the players who are not Hall of Famers and don't get statutes but who were great Giant players, they get plaques around the staduim:




And they have great Giant moments in the sidewalk:



But street is named for the greatest Giant of all (and of one the greatest baseball players of all time):


Hall of Famer Willie Howard Mays
Walking around 24 Willie Mays Plaza is a good time but don't do it on game days. It gets a little packed.

Some More Flowers


Just some more of nature's beautiful flowers as I was walking around The Presidio in San Francisco:










I am finding out that flowers are something that I really enjoy seeing while walking.
