Living the San Francisco Dream

A San Francisco "good-bye" to 2017

While much of the country is keeping warm indoors, we're fortunate to be able to enjoy being out and about (much to Tanner's delight as well as ours.)

Playing in the bay at Crissy Field is Tanner's first choice for a great outing, and we enjoyed doing just that a couple of days ago.

However, on New Year's Eve day we enjoyed a 5-mile walk through Golden Gate Park, out to Ocean Beach near the Cliff House and meandered back to our car.

This is one reason we pay the big bucks to live here! Our houses tend to be small, and very expensive -- but we don't stay inside much -- we have the coastal hills, and beaches, and mountains and parks as our backyard.
