Stunning Structure

No visit to San Fran would not be complete without a trip over the bridge. You can drive, be driven, walk or ride a bike. Stunning places to take photographs.

We were in the Bay Area & before going home we always like to stop at the wharf to pick up fresh cooked crabs & sourdough bread to take home for dinner.

The Chinatown at San Francisco city is the most amazing place in the city, here there is a special sensation because the people and the buildings offer a environment like in China. Would be impossible not to eat here and to make some buy

I grew up in San Francisco, been to Houston, Los Angeles, New York, New Orleans, Oregon, Seattle area and now Maui. Everywhere I go, I still get homesick of San Francisco.
