The Streets of San Francisco


I was in Full House city!!!!! This is the gorgeous line of rowhouses across from Alamo Park where the opening sequence of Full House , my daughter’s favorite TV show, was shot. I was there! I am so cool now….:yes: I saw Mary-Kate and Ashley and everything…. Okay, I’m lying now.

Fisherman’s Wharf! Best seafood and sourdough bread ever.


I bought piles of useless junk here. It is the useless junk mecca of America.

Got my palm read, too! Do all palm readers tell you that you will live a long life??


Cable cars!

Lombard– San Francisco’s “crookedest street”

The famous Cliff House restaurant and Seal Rocks.


I loved San Francisco. Been there? If not, go! It was so much fun and the food was SO GOOD!!! The RWA conference will be there in 2008 and I can’t wait to go back!

    I’ve been there as a child, but not since. Gorgeous pics!

    You were lying about seeing Mary Kate and Ashley??

    How rude! :rotfl:

    Did you go to Ghiradelli?

    I’m a hopeless chocoholic!

  4. catslady says:

    Oh those are great pics. I’d love to get there some time and San Diego too.:yes:

  5. Tori Lennox says:

    Great pictures! I haven’t been to San Francisco since I about two, I think.

    (And I think Lombard Street is actually the “crookedest street” in the whole country… or maybe the world. Anyway, it’s VERY crooked, isn’t it? :mrgreen:)

    Haven’t been there since I was kid. Somehow I think it would be much more fun now… :mrgreen:

    You gave us a wonderful impression of San Francisco. Great going. Nice seeing it like this after reading Simon Winchester’s “The Crack in the Edge of the World”.

    Yep, I’ve been there–for about 4 or 5 hrs. in July 1962. I can remember worrying about our car taking off down one of those steep hills when we parked it to get out for a while.

    I also loved the temperature–definitely my kind. As soon as we were 5 miles outside the city it was boil time again.

    It’s one of the places I’ve always wanted to go back to again. Those few hours were just not enough.

    And I have a feeling Tori’s right about Lombard Street’s being the crookedest in the world.

    I was in San Diego too in 1997. My first girl-cousin to join me in our family was living there with her family while her husband was studying at the Salk Institute. What I got to see most of was the beaches, the Coronado Hotel and used book shops. Oh, yeah and the family, too. I missed the biggest party because I locked myself out of the rental car–twice. The AAA guy had just managed to get the door open and rescued the key and I was so dizzy and ditzy that I stuck the key back in and closed the door when I went into our motel room.

    Talk about embarrassed!!!

    Good thing the guy wasn’t too far away yet. Anyway, after all these mishaps, I was just so exhausted I knew I wouldn’t be able to talk intelligently to a young guy that had a Ph.D. in some kind of physics and was working on artificial intelligence. Actually, their eldest daughter who was all of 6 or 7 then just arrived from Germany a week ago to go to school here near my sister’s place, where she’s staying until Feb.

    Great pics, Suzanne. I haven’t been back in too many years to mention — but RWA 2008 is most DEFINTELY in the cards!

  9. Angie says:

    I went about 5 years ago…and I want to go back so bad! I loved it.
    Did you see the sea lions? And the beggars with the cardboard signs that say “I can’t lie,
    I need five bucks for booze” and “Help me meet my alcohol quota for today”.
    Fisherman’s Wharf was so cool! We only had two days there, so we didn’t get to Chinatown. We just flat ran out of time. I was majorly disappointed.
    Great pictures! Thanks for sharing them.

    I’ve always wanted to live in one of those townhouses… :hyper:

  11. Lis says:

    Great pictures. That crooked street is scary though, I thought the snake road here in Edmonton (well it curves like one) was weird enough!

  12. Amy says:

    Love the pictures! I wanna go! Guess I’ll have to wait for RWA.

  13. Paula says:

    Thanks for the pics… I want to go.

    You’re missing flowers in your hair. lol
