Debbie Laity has asked us to show our home for the summer.
I've been reading about temperatures in the southwest over 100 degrees; seen gorgeous flower blooms and green, green lawns. I've enjoyed them all.
Here are a few pictures of San Francisco in the summer, which I hope convey a bit of what summer in San Francisco feels like. As I walk around the city, I enjoy the views and the beautiful gardens. I'm challenged by staircases and explore little pedestrian streets. I stand atop windswept sand dunes and gaze at Golden Gate Park and the ocean beyond. On a warm evening, sidewalk dining in North Beach is a treat and the interesting architecture in every neighborhood is a delight no matter what the season
And always, the fog -- ever changing, thick and heavy or barely there, or perhaps completely gone.(View from the east end of Chestnut Street on Telegraph Hill)

(Haven Street-a Russian Hill pedestrian "street" that goes nowhere!)
(tiled stairs, Moraga Street, in "the Avenues")
(view from Grandview Park, not far from the tiled staircase)
