Coit Tower

Filed under Travel

Today I walked around the North Beach area of San Francisco. Here are the photos.

Coit Tower is on top of a serious hill. What a workout just climbing the stairs to the top of Telegraph hill. Once you catch your breath, you get some great views of the city.

Next, we went to Pier 39 and the Fisherman's Wharf.

The World Famous Bushman caught me off guard. He has a writeup on Wikipedia, so I guess he is world famous.

The line to ride the cable car was *long*. I think we waited at least 45 minutes to get on. Here is a tip I learned...don't wait with the tourists to get on at the beginning. Instead, walk about a block away to the first cable car stop. There was *no* line and people just jumped on. You pay $5 after you get on.

I checked out the Golden Gate National Recreation Area today. This is about 5 blocks from where I now live. See the photos here.

1849 Miles

Filed under Travel

I made my journey from Dallas to San Francisco...a total of 1,849 miles. I did it over 4 days with stops in Odessa, TX; Tucson, AZ; and Los Angeles.

I got a new camera for the trip, a Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX07. The main reason I wanted a new camera is my previous camera took blurry pictures in low light conditions. This camera has image stabilization, which should help reduce blurry pictures. It also does wide screen video, which could be fun to play with. So far, I really like it.

Here are the pics from my trip. Thanks to Mike & Alan and my Grandma for letting me crash at their places along the way.

I saw three different wind power farms along the way. One outside of Abilene, one near Palm Springs, CA and the last just before I arrived in San Francisco. Here is some video (116 MB) I shot of the wind mills near Palm Springs. Photos don't do the wind mills justice...and I wanted to see how my new camera does widescreen video.
