San Francisco

This past weekend Jacki met me in San Francisco. Considering how little time we actually had we did quite a bit.

Saturday morning we headed to the Golden Gate for some pictures. We then went to Sausalito and grabbed a bite to eat and saw walked through some art galleries. The first gallery had art work of Janis Joplin and Grace Slick. Grace Slick had a great painting she did of Frank Zappa. The price was a smooth 9 grand so we quickly left.

Further down the street we met the Tapia's. They have a great little art gallery that you should visit. We purchased an orginal painting of tulips that had tremendous depth and a fantastic frame. We also picked up a painting of the Golden Gate bridge as seen from Baker Beach. This was Jacki's favorite.

After that we drove through the Muir Woods and over to the Pacific Cost Highway. Very dramatic views of the Pacific Ocean with cliffs that dropped a couple of hundred feet to the shore.

From there we headed back to San Francisco, drove down Lombard Street and saw a view from Hyde down to Fisherman's Wharf that was identical to one of the paintings in the Tapia Gallery.

Next we went to Pier 39. Saw the Sea Lions and ate at Bubba Gumps. We walked down to Fisherman's Wharf, viewed Alcatraz in the distance and then headed back to the hotel. A fun and busy day.

Sunday was spent heading over the Bay Bridge towards Oakland. After we drove across we drove right back and headed to Ghiradelli Square. We ate some Seafood and getting some chocolate desserts. Then it was time to head to the airport. On the way we passed through Union Square and then our trip was back to Atlanta.

You can view some pictures of the trip here.
