I'm very excited to get the film from the Leica back this afternoon!  I'll scan them and post them early next week.

Okay, this one's going to be a long one!  This is the last, colourful batch of photos from my phone.

 More brightly coloured homes and steep hills.

In the Mission District, the sidewalk grates around the trees were Día de los Muertos themed.  The neighbourhood was especially festive with Cinco de Mayo just days away!

One of the best meals I've probably ever had; at Gracias Madre.  If you're ever in that neighbourhood on a nice, warm day, I recommend sitting in their front patio and trying some of their homemade horchata.  It was pretty perfect.

Pretty markets in the Mission District.

The Golden Gate Bridge was really incredible.  We got up really early in the morning, (because we'd heard that the wind would pick up a lot later in the day), and went out to the bridge to walk across.  We spotted dolphins, (which is pretty magical for a girl from Canada!), and watched a giant tanker ship coming in to port under the bridge.  I'll have lots more photos from the other camera.  Poor Chris had to stop every ten feet for me to take another photo, (sorry Chris!).

Spotted: Banksy.

I love this sign, designed for the 49-Mile Scenic Drive by Rex May.

One thing I wished I could bring back with us; all of the beautiful succulent plants!  They were everywhere!

Possibly the best pizza I've ever eaten; from Pizzeria Delfina.

Rhubarb ice cream from Bi-Rite Creamery.

The view from one of the trolley cars headed down to the Fisherman's Wharf.

The last night we were there, we went to Fort Mason for their gathering of food trucks at Off The Grid SF.  My favourite was a steamed bao with crispy miso cured tofu with garlic-tofu mayo and baby choy sum from Chairman Bao.  So.  Delicious.

One last look from our hotel window.  Seriously, look at that hill!  This one nearly gave me a heart attack when we first drove up to our hotel from the airport.

Our brief stopover in Vancouver.  It was such a beautiful day that we drove over to the path on Beach Ave for a walk and watched the ships coming in to the harbour.

So that's all for now.  I'll post more photos early next week.
