Scenes of San Francisco, Part I

Hubby and I worked up an appetite each day we were in San Francisco, trekking all over the city.  What better way could there be to burn off the previous night’s dinner and make room for the next?  In the meantime, we took in the city’s highlights and snapped pictures for you…

And finally, to conclude Part I, check this out – compost bins!  In public!  And people actually use them!  This warmed the depths of my crunchy heart.
