What a morning by the San Francisco Bay!  Flocks of geese and ducks were flying low across the water. Sea gulls were circling and the sound of barking seals could be heard echoing. What was the reason for all of this fun? The herring were in the water. On certain days every year the herring migrate to the shores of San Francisco Bay to lay eggs and all of Mother Nature knew that today was one of the days. Even the fishermen were out on this beautiful morning. What a sight!

It’s that time of year again and our favorite! The holidays are upon us and tonight is the lighting of the Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree. It is a favorite event every year! Steeped in rich tradition and drawing people from around the world to watch, this spectacular event is a “must do” when visiting New York City. Lights, festivities and entertainment all lead up to the official lighting. The crowds will be huge and, once the tree is officially lit, many will take to the ice rink to finish the evening skating. It is a joyful evening. Hope to see you there! If you are not in the area or want to avoid the crowds, the entertainment and lighting will be televised – a great treat to watch.

San Francisco Waterfront

March 17, 2017

Exciting news on the San Francisco waterfront.  Pier 29 has received the OK for the development of retail shops and hopefully a recreational area as well.  This pier has been vacant and unused for years and is a another step in the revitalization and beautification of the San Francisco waterfront area.  There will be shops – most selling homemade San Francisco goods – a wine bar, a coffee roastery, and a craft beer brewery.  We are looking forward to a wonderful addition to this exciting and beautiful area.

Lombard Street in San Francisco has long been considered as the crookedest street in the world. And it is! And it is beautiful and scenic with fabulous vistas. What wonderful thoughts went into designing this amazing street. Today, however, it is still beautiful but very busy. Tourists come from all over the world to see it, drive down it and admire it. Fabulous but not fun for those residents who live on or around the street. Traffic is a nightmare and can back up in the neighborhood as the cars wait a turn to drive down. Tour busses stop at the bottom of the hill so that the tourists can get out and snap a picture. Then there are the thousands of tourists walking up or down the stairs of the street. So some in City Hall are considering a charge for the cars and busses. Don’t know how this would work or be regulated and it is a long time out (if ever) but it is an idea to help control all of the people looking to enjoy this wonderful San Francisco icon.
