hi, hello! long time no talk. i had visitors in town a few weeks back and got to play tourist in my own city. which, i've concluded, is a thing that shouldn't be overlooked as a worthwhile event even without visitors. knowing popular points of interest is useful because you never know when you'll need to dole out directions to the embarcadero or the best place to eat a crab as big as yer head. and when you do have to dispense that information, you can be all puffy-chested for the rest of the day because you know what's up and generally improved the experience of someone visiting your city. people helping people.
let's look at the pictures.
the weather was really cranking out its best moody bay charm. also, sea lions stink.
crab as big as your head at pier 23. boom.
i got honked at for standing in the middle of the street to take this picture (and the woman honking got the finger.)
i have no pictures of the bridge because i dropped the ball, is what happened there.
we ate at piqueo's in bernal heights, and now all i want is to listen to the waiter's syrupy accents and eat their peruvian food, the end.
hayes valley being cute.
coit tower/view from coit tower.
we went wine tasting in sonoma valley and kline's was the first stop. a man named bill served our group and said the sign about mud sharks (which are made up: the more you know) had to be added after a bachlorette party decided this fountain was a swimming pool. i sort of want to high five the members of that bachelorette party.
there were donkeys. i don't know.
blurry shot of wine glasses and i wasn't even drinking.
sing us out, scotty.
