Road Trip Review: A bit of San Francisco

Yes, in the middle of the California road trip I made the requisite pilgrimage to the City (as San Francisco is called by locals - and never, ever "Frisco," a gross vulgarism guaranteed to shake the City's pretensions and make local folks queasy).

I love the old Victorians, lovingly maintained and nicely painted. Mostly just a bit of color and not too tarty, though there are exceptions.

View at a stop light.

The Mint.

More Victorians and a corner turret.

And yes, ladies and gentlemen (and the rest of you lot), Castro Street. Towards the end of the street is the Castro Theater. [Click to enlarge.]

Lots of nice fauna too.

Awwwww, Margaret. That's so touching. Hope you can get the spaceship running again. Glad I could give you some visuals.
