San Francisco!

Ok, so this post has nothing to do with building houses - but Dave and I had such a fabulous time in San Francisco, I thought I'd share some of the millions of photos I took.

I'll let the pictures do the talking.............

A rare photo of the two of us together in the Palace of fine Arts (it was in the movie "So I married an axe murderer")
Moi with the Bay Bridge in the background.

Moi again in Union Square - leaving my heart in San Francisco!

Why we were there in the first place - St Francis Yacht club (in the distance) who hosted the sailing regatta Dave was in.

Coit Tower

Such a beautiful city with architecture to die for! We couldn't believe that on the most average of streets you would find amazing houses. This row of Victorians was on a walking tour I did.

Golden Gate Bridge under fog

Golden Gate Bridge with sunset (beautiful *sigh* this was actually from the sailing club)

Dave and I did this "Go car" tour with our friends Noddy and Sue (Dave's sailing partner and wife). The car is basically a 2 person moped. It was an absolute blast, and the tour with a GPS guide, was informative, had great directions, and was so much fun. This would be such a hit in Sydney.

Golden Gate Bridge on a sunny day! We saw dolphins swimming in the water under the bridge.

A fabulous diner we stopped at, for coffee and breakfast whilst on the car tour. A really great little stop, perched on a cliff, with a stack of history to boot.

Southies for you - the Painted Ladies. Oh and the one on the far left is for sale. About $4 million USD a taxi driver told us.

Goooooooooooo Giants! Yes we went to the Baseball. I loved it so much. Not so much for the game itself (bit like watching cricket), but the people watching - fabulous! They won!!!!

Dave's boat (he's in the middle) - actually an 18ft skiff, the Yandoo. Why we were actually there, thanks to the generosity of Woody and Kerrie. You are both amazing people - thanks :) The boys finished 3rd overall - a great result.


  1. oooo... the painted ladies on a sunny day. lol. Remember my pic ?? standing in the miserable rain, so desperate to get the famous shot ??... lol

    Hey! yellow cars in sydney.....maybe a new business venture bel???

  2. Funny you should say that Southies - I have thought about how it would work and the routes you could offer!!!! They said someone was looking into doing it in Melbourne - what's to see there - ha ha ha :)
