I spent yesterday in San Francisco...
|"A foggy day..." in San Francisco Town|
Husband participated in the Giants 5K race with some friends, while I sat snugly in the stands enjoying the views and cheering them on.
|I have NO IDEA how I managed to|
capture this image off the Jumbotron!
AT&T park is a beautiful ball park, and this was probably my only chance to sit behind home plate. It was wonderful!
|The Pitcher's Mound!|
|On the field!!|
|Having fun in the dugout|
|Good job Husband!|
Afterwards we went for lunch near Ocean Beach, and visited one of my favorite San Francisco landmarks...
|The fog and glare made it extremely|
difficult to get a good color photo
...the Dutch Windmills!
Although both windmills are in need of repair, they are still an impressive and remarkable sight. The South Windmill holds the distinction of being the largest of its kind in the world; while the North Windmill is surrounded by the beauteous Queen Wilhelmina Garden.
The ultimate time to see the garden is in spring when 1000s of tulips are in bloom, but it was still filled with an intoxicating array of perennial loveliness yesterday.
Hundreds of foxgloves stood tall and majestic amidst well-groomed lawns. Bumblebees buzzed all around, filling the air with the sound of their industry, while waves crashed on nearby Ocean Beach.
It was so very enchanting. I found myself wishing I could sit in that charming, picturesque garden all day.
If you are visiting San Francisco, I highly recommend a visit to glorious Golden Gate Park, and specifically, to see these distinctive pieces of local history.
