These precious few days in San Francisco, I've wandered up and down the steep hills and gazed at the timeless beauty of sailboats on the Bay and lights twinkling through the fog. I've climbed the steps to Coit Tower and basked in the moonglow. I've had intense conversations and laughed with good friends, old and new. I've rediscovered places and things I'd almost forgotten.
I've eaten vanilla bean gelato and Boudin sourdough bread for lunch and North Beach pizza for breakfast. I've immersed myself in the awe-inspiring energy of this amazing city that has twice been home to me - and dared to imagine that it could become home again.
I am not ready to leave San Francisco. For me, it's a magical place that long-ago captured my heart. But early tomorrow morning, I'm off on the next leg of my journey to Vancouver, British Columbia. It will be my first trip to Canada and I'm looking forward to spending time with friends, including the effervescent Maddie of Persisting Stars!
Sans access to a computer, I won't be posting until returning to Savannah late next week for Jordana's college graduation and related festivities. Wishing you all a wonderful and safe Memorial Day weekend!
