San Francisco Sunday

A  L  O  H  A !
I love the Golden Gate Bridge.
Slender Pagodas,
impossibly high
above the windy Bay,
whisking one into 
the magic City;
Or up to the glorious
forested North.
And Home.

Cadillac Building
"He who rejects change 
is the architect of decay. 
The only human institution 
which rejects progress 
is the cemetery." 
                 Harold Wilson 

Click on these dudes
with their cogs
and spoked tires.
Cars today are
L-Ion Batteries
and computers!

And a sweet little
terracotta Bear Cub,
California's Golden Bear.
He's been watching
the street scene
in San Francisco
for a LONG time!
Did you see
his Comfort Spiral

Cities are charged 
with mystery,
energy and wonder!

Linking to
Our World Tuesday

I was on a tiny island
for a long time!

"Your awareness is different 
from both your thoughts 
and your senses."

Gotta ponder THAT one!


Thank YOU
for Visiting!
                Fondly, cloudia

Thanks for taking us on a drive through San Francisco. Will you ever take us to Alcatraz... another island where people used to live.

What a wonderful tour. My sister-in-law was in San Francisco this weekend and shared several lovely photos of the Golden Gate in the background. She has been to the city several times since she moved out that way.

Beautiful scenes, and I love the text with it, especially Harold Wilson.

I enjoy seeing where you are now, and that is one of my most favorite bridges too. My favorite place to stay there is at Fisherman's Wharf, and everything in and around there. Share more! You know I love a good mystery too!
