If you set aside politics and pre-conceived notions, it’s hard to deny that San Francisco is one of the most beautiful densely populated cities in the world. Television personality Larry King, for example, reportedly indicated the ultimate travel destination for him would be one perfect day in the Golden Gate City.
“It’s a perfect 72 degrees, clear, the sky bright blue,” King has said. “I’d start down at Fisherman’s Wharf with someone I really like and end with a romantic dinner and a ride over the Golden Gate Bridge. There’s no city like it anywhere. And, if I could be there with the girl of my dreams, that would be the ultimate.”
During our recent trip to San Francisco, the Bay area, and the Napa-Sonoma region, I was fortunate enough to be there with the girl of my dreams (Mary, my wife of 29 years) and three pairs of our wonderful ‘couple friends.’ We basically started the day in the Fisherman’s Wharf area, which is where we got to take in the approaching 70 degree weather and occasional blue skies. The skies were blue just long enough to capture the photos featured here looking up at both the water and shore birds and at some of the aircraft participating in Fleet Week 2011.
