San Francisco (#2)

Today I rented a bike and went from pier 41 to Sausolito! I'm not a sporty type (except I like to play tennis) so I am quite proud of my achievement! The bridge I had to conquer. The bridge from the other side. The bridge taken from the ferry. Alcatraz. I enjoyed a real american lunch with a Californian Chardonnay. The palm trees are ready for christmas. I really enjoyed myself today! Cycled all the way to Sausolito. the weather was fantastic and I enjoyed the ride. Loved the smell of Eucalyptus along the way! And the view everywhere. In Sausolito I took the ferry back. Had lunch at pier 39 and walked around there. I took the streetcar back to market street and tried another shopping round. No stampedes today. I have been in 2 art supply stores, bought some clothes at the Old Navy, been to the Apple Store and the drugstore. What a day......and YES San Francisco is a wonderful city!

    I can't believe I have never been to SF. Been close but never there.

  10. Toch een beetje een bofkont met zo'n baan he. Genieten van de zon en het prachtige San Fransisco. Heerlijk zo'n baan. Maar dit is natuurlijk alleen de mooie kant ervan.

    Geniet nog even! Hier is het koud en guur!

    Veel liefs,

  11. Oh I am with Suki, it would be very hard not to have fun in San Francisco. Our family walked that route before. It is glorious, indeed! I love walking around SF so much. Did you shop in the Union Square area?

    I wish for you another beautiful day there, Marianne...and then a lovely time off the rest of the year!

    The few days I spend in this wonderful city I started seriously to think of the MAC and Photoshop...

  14. Hello Marianne, have enjoyed visiting your blog, there is so much to read and see. I love your mandala's - Soulbrush sent me a link to the clock you sent her and I now have a lovely one on my blog. Enjoy your visit to the States.

  15. One of my favorite cities - enjoy it! (you're probably home by now) but thanks for the pictures, makes me want to get on a plane and go there.

  16. Lovely photos! I lived in east bay SF for 7 years when I was young. It's a beautiful city. Oh and the main point of this comment was to thank you for the mandalas!!!! I got them in the mail Saturday and love them. Thank you so much for sending them and creating the pentacle one for me. :) Your mandalas look even better in person and are sitting on my mantle above the fireplace. :)

  17. Wow! Great fun in the ride,conquering the bridge, sweet ocean blue, delicious lunch...thanks for sharing!
    Do you love soft colour, just like this pink? You look so relaxed here! Yeah, great holiday.

  18. You were an hour from where I live!
    SF is our favorite city to explore and we do often. I'm glad you had a grand time and it looks like the weather was great for you too.
