At least once on the weekend, I like to take a long, long walk. I like to walk as far away from home as I possibly can and then walk all the way back. That usually amounts to around 7 miles round trip.
In the comments of the Reader Survey
, a couple of people asked for a little more non-crafty info, so this weekend while we were walking, I thought I'd snap some pictures for you.
I didn't think of this until we were halfway through our walk. And, I didn't come up with a theme or anything like that. I feel like I totally borked the whole thing. The photos aren't particularly beautiful nor San Francisco-y either. Well, maybe a couple are.
I'm going to post them anyway because I don't have the time to do a crafty post this week. Oh, well. Let's see what I decided to document ...
This is where I got the idea to take photos for you. We were at the corner of Broadway and Fillmore
and the road was falling away from us in both directions (straight ahead and to the left). Click through to the Google Maps street view if you want to see for yourself.
The reason I took the photo is that you can barely see the top of the next streetlight down the block. Here, let's take a closer look ...
Is that hilarious, or what? Also, right out of frame is the Golden Gate Bridge (which I misspelled as one word in my images ... gah). I thought I'd taken a photo of the bridge for you, but that photo didn't get saved on my phone. Oops!
When you're standing at this corner, cars appear from below, as if by magic . It's slightly terrifying if you're crossing the street on foot because the cars don't want to stop on the near-vertical road so they nose up into the intersection and I always feel like they are going to keep going and careen into me.
Believe me, I was happy to see those stairs when we crossed the street. Walking down those hills can be brutal on your big toes because your feet slip to the front of your shoes and smash, smash, smash your big toe with every step.
I promptly forgot all about taking photos for you until I saw this GIGANTIC crane for which they'd closed the street. I love big machinery. I love watching big cranes, construction equipment, and anything like that. I really don't know why. I don't want to build big things. I don't want to run the equipment. It just fascinates me for some reason.
So, hey look, big crane. Isn't San Francisco beautiful? Haha!
We stopped to rest our feet at Yerba Buena Gardens and I took these last two photos. Yerba Buena is pretty fantastic.
I hope this post isn't too ridiculous. :) We'll be back to regular programming soon.
