San Francisco: scrapbook


We spent a month in San Francisco, staying with Lucy and Cousin Siri in the Presidio; a 2 minute walk from the Golden Gate Bridge. Within a couple of days, Digs and I had got passes to swim in the University pool. We even tried using our SFU cards in other places and got student reductions on entry to MOMA and the Monterey Aquarium!

We slipped into a comfty routine of swimming in the morning, and then picking up some delicious coffees from Le Velo Rouge on Arguello, and a few groceries in the Arguello Store, run by a lovely chap who sellotaped my credit card back together when I accidently put it in my back pocket and sat on it. Tuesday night at Chez Lucy was always Pizza Night and Digs was at the helm.
