Previously, I posted some of the faces that I saw in San Francisco in Part I of this installment. In early spring of 2012 I drove down the Oregon Coast to San Francisco, where I spent a week wandering the streets. A beautiful time, eye opening, and always life changing. I will continue with more faces from SF now.
In April of 2012 I drove down the coast of America to San Francisco. It was a very beautiful drive for me, sunsets and seals were involved, and a perfect way to start off the trip [see The Road to San Francisco]. I had about a week.
When I arrived in San Fran, I realized that I’d be walking everywhere. I parked my car in a garage, pulled out my camera and toothbrush and walked it up to my hotel room. I had rented the cheapest place I could find, in the most central, downtown location I could find. As it turned out, it was right in the heart of San Francisco, exactly where I wanted to be.
The hotel room was pretty cool. I couldn’t help but feel I was following in the footsteps of some of my rock and roll idols that have played and hung around in the places I was heading to. Whatever I gotta do to make the dream come alive, right?
Each of my days I would spend wandering around; walking in a new direction with only my camera and bright eyes leading me. It was a beautiful trip. I met many very interesting faces, and talked to many interesting people.
I would do it again in a heart beat.
The road to San Francisco, California, USA from Vancouver, BC, Canada is about as beautiful as they come. After Seattle one heads to the coast along what is known as the Oregon Coast, or Highway 101, and finds themselves winding around boulders and whitecaps all the way to just North of San Francisco.
I found myself stopping at almost every turn in the road as the ocean opened up before me and the sky gave me a new perspective on life. Thank goodness I did this drive at a non-busy time of year or I’d have been fighting the whole way with RV’s and other tourists stopping in my stopping spots!
I did the trip down in two days because I felt it was worth my while to take my time. Also, I saw some sea lions real close.
What do you think?
