A Week in San Francisco...

... My BFFs gave me a week in the Nob Hill section of San Francisco for my birthday! They actually got the trip for free on a fluke, so I consider this trip a gift from God as well as from them!  God is great & so are they! I felt very blessed. We stayed at the Powell Place. It was beautiful, like our own little apartment but with all the perks of a fine hotel. Close to the top of the highest hills in the city, at the corner of Powell & California.  We got lots of exercise walking up & down the hills.
Our place was larger than imagined & nicer than expected. It had a bedroom, bath, spacious living room/ dining room & kitchen. It was at the back of the building (house) with a view of a garden (well treetops actually) just outside a big picture window. It was quiet with the exception of the ding ding ding -bell from the cable car that stopped at the top of of Powell Street.  The weather was so lovely & the trees just swayed the breeze into our place, along with the smell of steak, garlic & muffled laughter at night from nearby restaurants.  The staff there was so nice too. Here are a few of my favorite photos I took of "The City" while I was there... tomorrow I'll take you to Chinatown!

The horrible plane crash in SF today came to my attention after my initial post. Heartfelt sympathies  go out to all those on board, & to the families of those that were lost.  It was a blessing from God that so many survived.  Another reminder to live everyday to the fullest.

Sounds like it was an awesome outing. Unfortunate though about todays incident. Great photos. I love SF and haven't been there since we went to dinner at Fisherman's Wharf. Take care and thanks.
