San Francisco

I'll try to sum up a few of this week's experiences...
The Palace of Fine Arts: Overwhelming.  It's under renovations and I want to come back to see it when it's complete.  

The beach:  It's been very windy al the time we've been here.  We wanted to do some tidal pool exploring but the waves are so big! (and why do they always show those Tsunami shows on Discovery when we're on holidays on the west coast?)

China Town: ...great deals, interesting food, colourful characters, strange aromas and sore feet.

Cable cars: Vintage  San Francisco, where riding public transportation is an event.

The Aquarium: Experiencing the undersea world without getting wet.

Taking a ferry around Alcatraz and under the Golden Gate Bridge: windy, wild and exciting!

Great quick overview of your excursions! I love the photo of you and Dan in the ocean! (I stole it, hope you don't mind)

Wanna come for a birthday party for Danny? His BD is the 24th so it will be as close to that as is convenient for most. We'd love to see you!
