My trip to San Francisco: A photo essay

February 2013

DSC_0577I had always wanted to visit San Francisco, and after writing Dialing Dreams, I decided I just had to go see it.

So off I went, not sure what to expect, only sure that I wanted to ride a cable car or two and admire the ocean view.

What I found were some great memories and an appreciation for a very beautiful city.

Nick’s apartment
