    It really is a great city. I enjoyed it just as much as you did I suspect. :) Many memorable photos to be shared and treasured.

      Thanks for dropping by, Cheryl. Yes, it was fun looking at my pics and being reminded of the great trip to California. Glad you enjoyed your visit to San Fran, too.

    Lovely, Doreen. Sure brings back memories. Mind you, my memories from 40 years ago don’t include chocolate. Maybe it’s time for another visit to the area.

      Hi Linda, and thanks for dropping by the blog.

      Yes, I think it was at least 20 years since my last visit to SF. The basics haven’t changed, but the focus of my visit had. It was all good!

      Hi Susan: Yes, I’m always amazed at the variety of experiences you can have there. And the various modes of transportation you can ride for a very reasonable amount of money. The architecture is superb. You never know which way to look when you’re walking/touring around!

    We love San Francisco so much we have been back 3 times (and we are from Australia!). There’s just something about the city that draws you back.

    Glad you are having a good time :)

      Isn’t that the truth, Michael! There seem to be some cities that draw us back again and again. I certainly hope it won’t be too long until I’m back in California again!

      Thanks for visiting the blog. I believe it’s your first time. We hope to have you back again soon. :-)

    Doreen,
    I love your photos! It’s been years since we’ve been to San Francisco and your images take me right back there. I don’t believe that the the Marketplace was in the old Ferry Building when we were there. It reminds me of Faneuil Marketplace in Boston. Next time I go there, I’ll be paying more attention to the chocolate booths! :)

      Thanks, Sherryl. Yes, isn’t it cool how they take old massive buildings and turn them into vibrant shopping and meeting places?

      I can’t wait to visit Boston. It’s definitely been on my list for years!

    Haven’t been to San Fransisco since I was nineteen. But I agree with you, it’s a great place. Also enjoyed Fisherman’s Wharf, Chinatown and many other attractions in the city.

      Thanks for your comment, Catarina.

      Well, I’d venture to say that the highlights of San Fran are still the same, but have been vitalized with new attractions and additions. I’m sure that you’ll find it familiar, but newly vibrant when you next visit.

      Thanks so much, Esther. I’m having difficulty figuring out how to properly size the photos as I’m always in such a rush. Glad you’re enjoying them anyway. :-)
