Photos From the Road: San Francisco

Here's the latest in my series of photo posts from this summer's road trip!

I previously posted photographs of San Francisco movie locations. Here are a few more photos taken in San Francisco, beginning with a classic San Francisco shot including a cable car and the bay in the background. Click on any photo to enlarge for a closer look.

We hadn't been to San Francisco for many years, and we enjoyed an early evening stroll around Fisherman's Wharf. Some of the colorful signage:


Not a sign one sees every day...

Signs from classic San Francisco eateries in walking distance of the wharf:

This may not be a "classic" San Francisco restaurant, but it's a busy tourist spot prominently located on the wharf:

Loved these Barbary Coast Trail signs on the street, which reminded me of the Freedom Trail in Boston:

And this street name pressed into the ground evokes California literary and seafaring history. There are many places in California named for Dana, including a library my father and grandmother patronized in Long Beach.

We stayed at the Hotel Zephyr near the wharf, which turned out to be a delightful hotel at a relatively good price.

Instead of a pool, the Hotel Zephyr has a fun courtyard filled with comfortable seating areas, fire pits, and oversized games.

We really enjoyed the hotel's unique designs and comfortable room and recommend it.

The trailer serves everything from hot cocoa to alcoholic beverages. As the sun set we enjoyed cocoa next to a fire pit.

After checking out of our hotel the next morning, we headed for the Walt Disney Family Museum, located on the grounds of the The Presidio:

The Saturday scene on the lawn in front of the Disney Museum was most appealing! The museum is the building at the right...

...and if you are looking at the museum and turn to your right, you can see the bay in the distance.

I shared a few photos of the Walt Disney Family Museum in my post on SUMMER MAGIC (1963), and I'll be sharing more here in a future "photos from the road" post.
