Living the San Francisco Dream

Summer in my home town, San Francisco

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 east end of Chestnut Street(View from the east end of Chestnut Street on Telegraph Hill)

Hi Noah Seidenberg - I could have written about the plays, the concerts, the activities - but decided simply to share some of the photos I've taken on recent walks around the city - it was hard to know where to stop!

Lottie - all of your lovely photos give a good feel for San Francisco living in the Summer.

Lovely pictures, Lotties, especially the night view... of course, when I lived in SF I always felt summer was coolish and the real summer arrived in September.

Posted by Nina Hollander, Your Charlotte/Ballantyne/Waxhaw/Fort Mill Realtor (Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage ) over 3 years ago

Beautiful pictures, Lottie, as always. I think the tiled stairs are my favorite!

Lottie I love the Bay Area, and it would not be San Francisco without the fog :)

Hi Kathleen Daniels so many photo ops here.

Hi KRISTIE DESAUTELS - those white flowering trees are angel trumpets - they have a very sweet, light fragrance which is most prominent in the evening.

Hi Nina Hollander - with changing weather patterns, we've had less fog and warmer temperatures than past years.

Dana Tapia & Lisa Pigott - hi Lisa, the tiled stairs are truly a work of art. This is only one of 3 that I'm aware of.

Hi George Souto - the fog is quite delightful. In my part of the city, it doesn't come in to stay for day, just very changeable day to day.

If I can get to the top of these challenging tiled stairs off Moraga Street. It is time for wines and celebrate.

Thanks for sharing.

Hi Sam Shueh - that was only one of the many staircases we climbed that day--my FitBit said I went up the equivalent of 131 flights of stairs. Beer and Cheetos tasted fabulous when we got home!

Good morning Sharon Lee - Perhaps the photos will entice you to put San Francisco on your bucket list!

Hi Sheila Anderson - I'm glad you enjoyed the photos. Summer here is quite different than on the east coast.

Hello Gita Bantwal - I think so too 

Posted by Lottie Kendall, Helping make your real estate dreams a reality (Compass) over 3 years ago

San Francisco is such a beautiful place, I have been there a couple of times and I hope I get to visit there many more times in the future!

Already is.

Posted by Sharon Lee, Retired and loving life (Sharon Lee's Virtual Assistance) over 3 years ago

Plan a trip in the summer -- but bring your sweatshirts! So much cooler here than there.

Those are the best pictures, Lottie. I haven't been to San Francisco in years. I need to get back and explore and take in the sights, food and people. Thank you for taking the time to enter the challenge.

Now as a native Bay Area boy you, and I know this is either March or November since we never see the sun in the summer in the City  Beautiful photos and yes I know, Mr. Sun sneaks in around July and stays for a while.

Posted by Thomas J. Nelson, Realtor e-Pro, CRS, RCS-D, Vets, & Host of Postcards From Success Podcast (Big Block Realty 858.232.8722) over 3 years ago

So the rumour goes, Thomas J. Nelson, Realtor - these photos were taken this month, mostly on June 3 and June 5 - this area of the City gets much less fog than the Avenues does. And when the fog does come? Just part of the charm of summer in the City.
