After breakfast I walked over to the park to the Strybing Arboretum in Golden Gate Park and walked many of the trails like above. The arboretum is still looking good even this late in summer, as always. I like the little dirt paths found everywhere in the arboretum. Above right is a pond by the bamboo trail.
Above left is the redwood trail.
Lots of bright flowers
An interesting round tree above left.
Some flowers just hang around.
Some look like cones, others have interesting paint jobs. I like the arboretum!
On the way leaving the arboretum I spotted this sign on the back of a bus which I kind of liked.
Then it was time to take a busmans holiday. I worked for a transportation agency for twenty years and helped build a light rail system. So I like to ride the trains. I caught the train back to Noe Valley then walked down Noe Street through the Castro District then caught the train again and rode out to the Stonestown Mall and back trough the Ingleside district then back downtown. Dinner was a Mexican pizza at Goldie's Pizza Parlor after which I caught the train home. It's usually nice visiting San Francisco because the temperature is usualy 10-20 degrees lower than at home but that wasn't needed since our weather at home has been perfect. It was a nice day out and there was no way I had to touch a shovel or pick ax today.
