A Grown-Up Get Away to San Francisco

We went to the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art
....some of it was good....most of it made us scratch our heads
as to what was really "art". Here is our stab at it though.
A very ornate church with Coit Tower in the background.
One of our favorite photos of The Golden Gate Bridge.

Beautiful clusters of grapes at the Francis Ford Coppola
vineyards, Rubicon, in Napa Valley. The weather while
we were there couldn't have been more perfect!

The front fountains and entrance to the Francis Ford Coppola
museum on the grounds of the vineyards.

Driving back from Napa Valley, we stopped at one of the
scenic overlooks to snap a self-portrait in front of the
Golden Gate Bridge. The weather was MUCH colder the
closer we got to the city!!!

On our last morning in San Francisco, we ate
breakfast at a famous little coffee shop that had
been featured earlier in the week on The Food Network
with Guy Ferrier. The extended wait for a table at 7:30 a.m.
was worth it! The food was amazing! It was the perfect
ending to a wonderful trip!
