The View from 150 California Street

I found more public open space in a building at 150 California Street in San Francisco. Went up to the sixth floor and it was beautiful up there. The cool thing was that there was nobody else there with me:

I love all the public open spaces on top of buildings in San Francisco.

Off the Phone

Just some pics off my phone:

And me being me-I found two more of the big Heroes and Hearts in San Francisco that I hadn't see before:

And always remember that peace will be with you:

Walking Lombard St and Gardens

Lombard Street in San Francisco is known for one thing- a steep, one-block section with eight hairpin turns between Hyde and Leavenworth. The section is only 600 feet, is one-way all downhill and is paved with bricks. It is said to be the most crooked street in the world. Besides being crooked, it is also lined with flowers and makes a short but beautiful walk. I didn't drive it like most people, I just walked it and enjoyed it:

People actually live on the street dealing with all the tourists

Lombard St and Gardens is truly, original San Francisco treat. I learned that it is better viewed walking it than driving it.

Music Monday: Songs While Cleaning

Music Monday: Just some of the stuff I was listening to the other day while cleaning the house:

And because I saw the movie "Some Kind of Wonderful" again on one of those cable channels:

Have a wonderful week.

Some Cool Whips

I was in Downtown Hayward and they had a small display of classic cars, so I decided to take a look:

Even though I believe that a car is only to get you from point A to point B, I do think that the people who take the time and everything to restore these cars are true artists.

More Monterey

Talk about selling to the tourists

Just a few more images from my little visit to Monterey:

There was a surfboard Museum:

1939 Surfboard
1952 balsa wood, twin fin Simmons board-worth about $80,000
And the beach and ocean:

And a wonderful place to eat:

I bought this small flight of craft beer-If you mix the two on the left, it tastes like peanut butter and jelly as the one of the extreme left is a craft peanut butter beer and the one next to it is a blueberry beer 
Mini corn dogs and a bowl of chili
Monterey is a lovely place to spend a day or a weekend:
