Did you know that San Francisco is NOT one of the largest cities in Californina? The largest California cities are San Diego, San Jose, Fresno and Los Angeles. Mike, our SF tour guide, also, mentioned that San Francisco has more dogs then children. I had a grand adventure, yesterday, in this windy city. I drove up from Santa Cruz, to join my amazing granddaughter, Alejandra, for an adventure my son and daughter-in-law arranged. The four of us went from Berkeley to Oakland, to SF, to Saulsalito, back to SF, Oakland and Berkeley. Wow, those ferries travel fast! We had a great lunch in Saulsalito, at Poggio’s Northern Italy sidewalk eatery. Melt in your mouth home made mozzarella cheese, tomatoes, scallops, halibut, beef and much more. We caught the end of some amazing break dancing in the street sponsored by DARE. Alejandra danced with a silver guy since the gold guy wasn’t around. Perhaps, toady I will figure out how to upload the video for you. Right now I need to walk the dogs, before the wharf to wharf race starts. Hope the list I leave you with, below, is helpful for dog lovers. This time next week I will be in Germany, visiting Anna and family!
