Living the San Francisco Dream

Sights on a December night walk in San Francisco's Pacific Heights

gym at Pacific Place, SFAfter a long day in the car yesterday and working at my computer I felt the need for some exercise.

Sure, I could have gone to the gym downstairs in my building, a handy facility to be sure. But with the stars twinkling, the air fresh and hills beckoning, why stay indoors?

San Francisco is a great place for walking, especially in my area in the north end of town--hills for exercise and tremendous views; friendly neighborhoods like upper Polk and the Fillmore; beautiful homes, both large and small. Neighbors are out walking, too, those with dogs and others returning home from dinner at one of the fine neighborhood restaurants.

So off I headed, along Jackson from Van Ness Avenue to Lyon Street, returning on Pacific. 45 minutes later, I was home, well exercised and smiling, happy to have seen so much beauty in so few minutes.

I hope you enjoy this slide show of holiday lights!

I really does not take a lot of effort to take a good walk.  It is making time for it.

I did enjoy it, Lottie. I love the one with the colored lights around the arched entry. Merry Christmas.

Very nice slide show Lottie.   I need to get out and walk more myself.

San Francisco is definitely a place to live if you don't want to go to the gym.  I remember walking there and being in severe upper thigh pain from all the hills :).  I didn't see the slide show because you have to download Smilebox, but I bet those lights are fabulous.

Toni, and Jim -- I'm glad you enjoyed the light show. Walking in my neighborhood is so much fun, especially this time of year.

Tim, the hardest part about taking an evening walk is getting up out of the chair, and pulling away from the computer.

Lottie - I'll take a walk with the holiday lights over the gym any day.  Great photos!

Lottie - it's always fun to take a stroll through the neighborhood and see what decorations the neighbors have put up for the holidays. Thanks for sharing the slide show.

We've been enjoying a range of weather--heavy rains a week ago; then 3 very warm & mellow days last weekend; this week quite chilly (for us! 50-55°) days. Today is gorgeous--sunny and crisp. Good for walk about the City.
