postcard from america

Paved with gold in San Francisco

Published by


I have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.

    1. Or Australian… actually Australia is very American in a lot of ways. I know you have been to San Fran – did you go down to Fisherman’s Wharf?

        1. No real danger of that- just not long haul. 🙂 🙂 We went adventuring this morning and ended up in a tailback of traffic from an accident. Aborted adventure cos I had to be back for Rafa.

        2. Long haul is not much fun. Though once you get there it is amazing to have made the journey. If only I could sleep the entire way I’d be fine.

        3. Got to do Coimbra for a few days. And I’m hopeful that we can go up to Porto to see Cathy after she’s done the Camino. I’ve put Azores on hold for next May/June as that’s the best time to go. 😦

        4. Dunno. There are flights from Newquay to Faro in the summer, not looked where else they go to; Exeter and then Bristol are the next closest airports, 2-3 hours away. So much easier when we lived about an hour+ to Heathrow and Gatwick.

    1. Late evening as the sun was setting and everything turned to gold. Light is all important to photography and forever changing what you see.

    1. I know a lot of people avoid Fisherman’s Wharf but I really like the atmosphere down there, plus you are right on the water and have views of both bridges if you walk along their.
