Yesterday, I met another fellow Blogger - Britt-Arnhild, her husband Terje, their daughter Marta and three fellow Americans who were hosting these wonderful people from Norway, Jane, Lanny and Maddy. I *met* Britt through Suki - what a small and wonderful world it is! You may find Britt-Arnhild's wonderful blog here..http://brittarnhildshouseinthewoods.typepad.com
We had one day to see *everything* in San Francisco - so although the day was grey and very cold....(*Mini-Winter* for those who read me regularly), we set off!
First stop - the Palace of Fine Arts. Britt is a consummate photographer, so I knew she would appreciate the history and beauty here.
|Amazing - and wonderful to finally meet!|
|Photographing the Photographer!|
Then, off to Crissy Field and the Fog-Shrouded Golden Gate!
It WAS cold - we stopped at the Warming Hut for Lattes and Hot Chocolate - and sweatshirts! Brrr...
|Marta and Maddy|
Off to Lunch at *Liverpool Lils*.....I wanted my friends to sample some typical SF food - away from tourists!
|Surprise! Emily V.V. Rabbit appeared! She just shows up everywhere!|
Next Stop - a ride on the Cable Car! (I hadn't been on one in years!) We had to wait in a LONG queue...but eventually, boarded and everyone had a great time riding up and down those hills!
|Britt and Marta....(Terje in the background)|
The *clock was ticking*...we had to make it to Pier 33 to get our boat for....Alcatraz! (Somewhere I have NEVER visited in all my SF days!)
On *The Rock*.....Looking out at Angel Island.....
Alcatraz Tales......to be continued....tomorrow!
