Downtown San Francisco and More
This past Saturday, Joe and I ventured into the streets to walk around, exercise our dog, and take some photos of the city. Because we were both feeling a bit under the weather, we kept our adventures quite local and close to home.
As we walked around, we poked into alleys and took a new look at the old European-looking buildings that are all around Union Square, the financial district and on both sides of Market street. They are truly gorgeous and they add so much charm to the city!
One thing I love, LOVE about Market street are the trains that run on it! These trains are ancient but still are in mint condition. The go by, zooming by faster than you would expect. I’m honestly obsessed with photographing this old treasures!
In West Portal, we saw mostly houses and no apartment buildings and, there were grassy spots outside the houses! Oh, there are no grassy spots outside apartment buildings in the part of the city we live in. In fact, we are lucky to have so many trees around our building despite being so close to the center of the city!
About an hour later, we realized our time was running out and it was time to return the car. Please with having seen a new part of our city, we got in the car and drove back home. Both of us still felt a bit sick so we decided to just take it easy for the rest of the afternoon. Next to us, an exhausted dog looked very happy too!
