A dear friend and I spent several days in San Francisco last week, and with the help of a San Fran regular, we got to see Ocean Beach. It was just one of the many highlights of our trip. We walked by the water side, a nice change from the Hudson River, and climbed to the top of the (mini) cliffs to take in the views. Not only was it beautiful, but the weather in San Francisco at this time of year is perfect - light sweater and jeans kind of perfect. It was also on this day that we ate Four Barrel pastries and Bi-Rite ice cream before noon, walked all over the city, and then ended the night in an incredible ping pong match involving upwards of 30 people. More photos to come.
