Baseball, Star Wars and Fireworks


I went to the A's-Rangers game over the weekend and it was Star Wars night with fireworks. I usually a baseball geek who takes pics of the game and really follows the action at the yard but this time I just decided to have fun and enjoy myself. So sorry if I didn't get a ton of game shots:

I had a wonderful time at the ballpark (even if they played music from Rouge One instead of the classic Star Wars tunes) and I did visit the Darkside:

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.

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.
