been there and back

It was one quick trip to San Francisco.
Though my flight left ninety minutes late, I was there in time for lunch.
I had never taken BART before. I got on the red line that took me right
to the BART station at SFO. There are about four or five machines where
one can buy a ticket to a certain destination. I bought a ticket to the Powell
Street station, and followed the group down one flight to the platform and
got on the train. I got off at the Powell Street station. After finding my way
outside i just stood there taking it all in. Blasting street performers with a guy
yelling over huge loudspeakers in non-english, buses, cars, people, and a
very long line for the cable car. I stood in the ticket line for about fifteen
minutes with no movement and gave up. Deciding to walk over a few
blocks to SFMOMA, the museum of modern art, where i got a bite to eat
out on the sidewalk eating area.Then inside to have a look. It was good to
be inside the museum seeing some art for awhile, and kinda strange to be
chased-down for talking on my cell phone. After awhile i was wanting to
get back out in the fine weather, all sunny and in the sixties.

I walked around taking photos. And later met Peter’s brother. He lives with
his wife in a condo in the downtown area. We went to dinner and ate
family style Chinese, sharing the dishes.

After dinner, saw the condo, took shots of the view, and then off for a
walk to my hotel.

The next day…all driving, back home. It took me about ten hours or so.

NOTE…

I started a virtual Photo Gallery.

There will be photos of my trip displayed there.

  1. It’s been ages since we’ve been up to SF. We used to head up there fairly regularly. I was just telling my hubby that we need to go for a visit soon. Glad that you had time to take in the museum.
