Kristin and I visited San Francisco for a few days in September primarily because Joyce is living and working there. She is working for a web-based health care start-up in S. F. city and living in Oakland.San Francisco is a beautiful city to begin with, but it is too big to explore fully in a few days. We set our goal to focus primarily on hangout with Joyce.
On Saturday, we drove down to Half Moon Bay. It is famous for many but we liked visiting a cactus (succulent) nursery, a pumpkin yard, art and craft shops. In a long while, we enjoyed the fall season and the fall colors. We ate lunch at Moss Beach Distillery Restaurant. The foods and views were equally stunning. After lunch we strolled in a park filled with thin and tall trees on top of the cliff looking over the ocean. Panoramic and amazingly beautiful! But, we liked and enjoyed the fresh smell of the trees in the park, along with the companionship we particularly enjoyed. We drove back to San Francisco passing by Pacifica. It was cute, but we liked Half Moon Bay far more.

In San Francisco, we drove through the famous Lombard Street that is a short but winding street decorated with flower gardens and cute houses. Obviously, we were tourists.

We had a great time. Only it was too short. Until the next time, Ciao! - Jeffrey
