When guests come to visit, we take them to the usual San Francisco haunts they want to see (Embarcadero, Fisherman’s Wharf, Union Square, North Beach, cable cars…), and for ourselves, try to walk new routes and find new spots to keep it fresh. I confess, I don’t even bring my camera anymore (how many pictures of Coit Tower do I need?), but it was a first time visit for our friends from the East Coast; it would be easy to feel the day with fresh eyes.
We had both cloudy and sunny days:
Near Telegraph Hill. Last month we shot video footage here for my new song “I’d cross any bridge for you.” I love this spot!!
Vinyl store “101 Music” on Grant
Favorite animals of the day: sharks in the glass tunnel; Aquarium by the Bay- SF.
Art of the day: Argentina ants at Fisher Weisman Studio of custom furnishings
“I dunno Bernard… the journey from Argentina has been long; anything my size will do.”
The most inspiring discovery of the day;
The statue of The Goddess of Democracy in Portsmouth Square in Chinatown, begun in 1989 and is a replica of the same statue erected at Tiananmen Square to mark the protests of the same year.
It was a gorgeous day. Everyone is relaxing and playing cards and checkers around her.
