California Girls

Archer and Henry are getting married in just a few short months!  To celebrate, several of us gals jetted out to San Francisco for a long weekend trip.

Sharp, Archer and I were the first to arrive.  We cabbed from the airport, dropped our bags and headed into the city.  After a quick lunch, we boarded "Happy Days" for a lovely Bay cruise.

It was chilly!  We loved the fall-ish weather.


Ahoy, Alcatraz! 


We saw the sea lions on our way back to the dock!

Instead of staying in a hotel, we opted to rent a town house in the Russian Hill neighborhood.  We were half a block from the cable car line!

"Painted Ladies" is a term used for Victorian and Edwardian houses that are painted in three or more colors that enhance their architectural details.  This term was coined for the the group of San Francisco row houses that are also known as the "Full House" houses.  The houses are situated across the street from Alamo Square Park--we made a point to go by and channel Michelle Tanner and Comet!


Frolicking through the grass!  The hill was a steep--I got some air on the decline!
