Last Thursday my son, daughter and I went to the San Francisco Conservatory of Flowers. San Francisco is about an hour away from where I live but it's like a whole different world in so many ways. The climate is usually drastically different, the culture is different and driving around the city is so much different than the South Bay Area. Driving a stick shift in San Francisco is downright scary but also a bit comical at the same time. I was panicked every time I ended up at a red light or stop sign on one of those steep hills that the city is known for. Luckily I made it without rolling backward or killing the engine. I did make a left turn going the wrong way down a one-way street though. Luckily I realized I was going the wrong way as soon as I turned so I was able to back up and turn around. The drive around San Francisco gave us all a lot to laugh about. We had a blast! We also had a great lunch on Fisherman's Wharf. I had clam chowder is a sourdough bowl...ya can't get any more San Franciscan that that!
The Conservatory of Flowers is located in Golden Gate Park and is stunning when you see it. This was the day the storm were starting to hit California so it was really cloudy and dark.
I wanted to take this cherub planter home with me! It was huge!
After we left the conservatory we drove through Golden Gate Park and saw this beautiful waterfall.
It's back to work after 2 weeks off. I got a lot done around my place. I finished painting the kitchen and I painted my dining room table. I'll be posting pictures soon.
