    San Francisco

    So.... stalker or no stalker, I am gonna share... [img]/forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/70371-jump.gif[/img]


    Yesterday we went to the Haight St. Fair in San Francisco.




    It was Imanni's 2nd time in the city, and he had a ball...




    His Father lived in SF for many years, and was glad to be in his old stomping grounds for the day.

    I love the city on occasion, and planned to meet up with an old friend at the Street Fair...


    So this is my report of a day in San Francisco [img]/forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/70371-jump.gif[/img]

    Re: San Francisco

    I spent probably 3 hours twisting Imanni's hair on Saturday...


    He was so good, he sat still and would help me hold a piece here and there [img]/forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/grin.gif[/img] we took breaks in between sections, and by the afternoon his head was done... [img]/forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/70371-jump.gif[/img]

    On the way to the city he could not stop shaking his head and pulling on the twists... I think he really likes it [img]/forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/cool.gif[/img]

    Re: San Francisco

    There is almost always traffic leading up the the Bay Bridge and yesterday was no exception:




    We got through it and it was smooth sailing over the bridge:



    We got our first glimpse of the city [img]/forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/yahoo.gif[/img]

    Re: San Francisco

    We drive around, and around, and around there is absolutely NO PARKING [img]/forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/mad.gif[/img]

    After 3 trips around about a 12 block radius, I give up and head back to the pay parking lot $20 a car [img]/forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/eek2.gif[/img] [img]/forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/mad.gif[/img] [img]/forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/70394-bawlout.gif[/img]


    I pull up to the guy and as I am handing him my hard-earned money with a big sad face I say $20 this is crazy [img]/forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/crazy.gif[/img] [img]/forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/cry.gif[/img]

    He says I know... there are only 4 spaces left, park over there, and he hands me back my $20 bill [img]/forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/shocked.gif[/img] [img]/forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/eek2.gif[/img] [img]/forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/70371-jump.gif[/img]

    I don't ask any questions and quickly pull over to where he told me to park before he changes his mind [img]/forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/shocked.gif[/img] [img]/forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/yahoo.gif[/img]

    Now we have free parking, and we are only a block from the street fair [img]/forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/70371-jump.gif[/img]

    Re: San Francisco

    So we load Imanni in his Jeep Stoller, and head into the crowd:


    There is "wall to wall" people!

    You can smell the food vendor's and ever so often there is a hint of herb in the air [img]/forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smirk.gif[/img]


    People in the house windows watching the goings on, and being crazy like only SF people can be [img]/forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/crazy.gif[/img]
