Photo Journal - A Day in San Francisco

I went to San Francisco last weekend, to visit my brother and his wife and baby. I had such a great time! I flew out there with another brother and left The Husband and critters at home. It was nice to have a weekend away, though I missed the family while I was gone.

I mentioned before how wonderful the trip was. Not only was it great to spend time with my brothers and my sister-in-law (not to mention that adorable nephew of mine), but the trip was just an easy one. All four flights landed early, the weather cooperated, and I even found the boots I was looking for when we went shopping in the city!

I love taking photos (can you tell?) and so here are some of them from the day we went into San Francisco:

Here's a view of the Golden Gate bridge (and my adorable nephew), taken at the Crissy Field park. Beautiful place, and some of the BEST people watching ever!

It was an usually clear day, so this shot of Alcatraz was a nice surprise. Remember, my camera is a junky little point and shoot, so I was happy that it wasn't foggy or misty there that day:

Here's another shot at Crissy Field - this one is of the city, facing away from the bridge:

I think this is my favorite shot. I've always been in awe of houses built into the hills - stacked right next to each other. It's about as architecturally different as you can get from where I live surrounded by cornfields... Look at these hilly streets! How would you like to drive a stick shift on those?

We did some shopping. I love watching people while we're out and about. So much fun, and so many things to see!

Union Square is all decked out for Christmas. I loved watching the ice skaters there!

Those are some of my favorite pictures that I took of the city. I can't wait until my next visit out there!

Great pics, Monnik! I'm so jealous. Last week was so cold, I WISH I could have escaped to someplace semi-warm.

That baby nephew is seriously cute.
