Spire and The Presidio Tunnel Tops


The other morning I went over to the Presidio in San Francisco. The Presidio is a famous Army base that is now a part of the Golden Gate Recreation Area. I didn't go for the Army stuff, I went over to see a couple of things.

First was the new park that has been created there, it is called Tunnel Tops. It is a 14 acre park at the Presidio and it may have a view: 

And there might be a view or two:

After hanging out at the Tunnel Tops Park, I took the shuttle over and took a look at Spire. Spire is a 100-ft on the Bay Ridge Trail and is considered a symbol of the rejuvenation of the Presidio Forest:

Here is Spire:

After seeing Spire, I realized I was hungry and had a nice breakfast at the Presidio Golf Club:

It was a beautiful morning of adventure.

Hanging at the Santa Monica Pier


The Santa Monica Pier is a tourist destination but it is a fun place to visit in Southern California: It has shops, a small amusement park, a 100-year-old carousel and the Pacific Ocean, what more do you need:

Had lunch while I was there:

Oh did I mention that it has one of the most popular beaches in Southern California:

The Santa Monica Pier is a cool place to hang out:

 I have really enjoyed being the conductor on this Music Monday Train. It has been a great time. I will leave you with some songs I have been hearing and enjoying on the XM channel The Spectrum lately:

Thanks for following this "conductor" in August.

Return of the Downtown Hayward Street Party


After two years, the Downtown Hayward Street Parties have returned in my hometown. They are held once a month on Thursday's and there is lots of music, food, people and fun:

I cheated and didn't eat the food at the Festival but instead went to the Dirty Bird Lounge which is located downtown and got to see their beautiful new mural:

Love these fun community gatherings.

Meanwhile at Taco Bell...


I went to the Taco Bell Cantina in Pacifica besides having the regular Taco Bell food fare, it sells margarita's and other alcoholic drinks. Oh, did I mention it is on the beach:

Had to get this margarita and enjoy watching the waves and surfers

And it also has surfboard parking:

The Taco Bell in Pacifica is the best Taco Bell I have ever been to.
