Another Wonderful Spring Day in San Francisco

Yesterday we walked the lagoon at Crissey Fields in San Francisco. Yes, it's where we spent last Saturday too, but a week later we took the more watery scenic route. I am holding up my new pedometer to show you we walked 14,000 steps!
Dh is heading out toward the Golden Gate bridge.

This lagoon is lovely, peaceful, beautiful.

We stopped at a little aquarium and saw this starfish in a tank. The purple lupine were in abundance as were many other beautiful wild flowers.

Lots of rock artists abounded as well.

Lovely trees and rocks...

This was another little museum where we stopped to see some wonderful photographic art and art by children.

What a wonderful idea this is. These artists decided to photograph the alphabet as found in nature. I saw it as a wonderful challenge and did find some letters in drift wood and leaves on our walk.

This delightful bench holds a well done painting of jars of things.

The CA Thayer is the black ship in front. It is being restored on Hyde Street Pier. DH got to go aboard on a special guided tour of two. He was in ship heaven.

It was a beautiful sunny, warm spring day. And we had a wonderful time. I feel so blessed to be so close to this great city that people travel from all over the world to visit. I heard many different languages being spoken around us yesterday!

Art sculpture we saw upon entering the city.

Me with my new glasses and new camera!
Happy Spring to one and all!
