California Road Trip - San Francisco by Philip Swallow

(Originally posted to Facebook on June 8, 2019)

Sue and I have really connected to San Francisco. It has character, history, charm, friendly people, loads to see, a nice climate - I could go on . . . 

It has been a good reboot to leave the car parked for a few days although yesterday we did 20,000 steps, covering 10 miles and the equivalent of 40 flights of stairs! 

We love the fact that there are few chains here, certainly ones we know in the UK anyway, so local businesses get the chance to thrive. Many of those have been established for a long time (thank you Swensen’s Ice Cream Parlour!!)

The weather has been kind and we really enjoyed our pre-booked trip to Alcatraz. Please make it part of your trip if you plan to come here. 

My photo shoot rate has increased as you will have noticed, and the video content is building up - many hours in the edit suite to come. 

We will eat locally this evening and then head off first thing to our next stop on our “loop” of California.
