Sequoia and King's Canyon, July 2005

Around San Francisco

This was the first time I had the time and the opportunity to really explore downtown San Francisco. Ans found it wonderful. The day started off chilly, with the unpredictable cold and fog around the Golden Gate bridge. We made our way through a beautiful, windy drive to Stinson Beach. A wonderful lunch of fresh seafood by-the-sea followed. The evening was spent in downtown SFO - we met up with Vinay Ramani and his wife, Ashwini, roamed around the little shops on the marina, had a quick dinner, and ended with a mouth-watering icecream shake at the Ghiradelli factory store.
