Joy in the City by the Bay


 Today, let's pause and look around.

Across the Bay, much joy is found.

Our 49ers are Bowl-bound!

 
How lucky can one city be?

from winning pennants by the sea

to lighting Union Square's grand tree?

Just take a trolley to the ocean

(Pier 39 inspires devotion),

then watch a play, if that's your notion.

 We've got it all...catch the ballet...

or catch a wave at Half Moon Bay...

the spot where famous surfers play.

Find views that no one can ignore,

or take a jog along the shore.

She always leaves you wanting more.

 
The City by the Bay.

GOOD LUCK, NINERS!

Oh my gosh great photos, good music, and on my last trip to San Fran we stayed in Fisherman's wharf! One of my favorite pastimes there was of course people watching and catching the street entertainers down there! My fave was getting my picture taken with a man and his all doggie band!

My daughters are trying to convince me to take a girl's trip there. You're adding to the temptation.

Rocky Mountain Woman said...

oh my, now I need to take a trip to the coast...

Dixie Mom said...

Oh, you are so great and San Fran should pay you for this great tribute to their city! My only wish is that Steve Young still played for the 49ers...:)

good luck 49ers! I used to live in SF in the late 70s. I wish I had gone out more and visited the tourist sites, but I just had my own little path to school and stores and home again. Never have been a party animal... {:-Deb

Great poem. I love San Francisco.

VBR said...

Oy! What can I say? Photos of a beautiful city. Photos of one of my favorite style of house. Beautiful just beautiful. And, on top of that, musical background that is perfect! Lovely j post.

I used to be quite a Forty Niners Fan when Steve Young played there. I am not that into pro ball as much these days, still, I am glad you guys are, and I do wish those 49ers lots of luck.

By the way, I did enjoy the poem and pictures. Some of them brought back some pretty neat memories of S.F.

Someone likes their San Francisco. Great city.

Lola said...

Wonderful captures - itching now to return there!

Grandma Honey said...

Your poem and pictures gives me a better impression of SF than I usually have. I have a hard time with the all the houses and buildings close together. But really, you remind me of why I liked it so much as a child. My Dad grew up there and so loves that city.

Judie said...

Amy Involuntary said...

It looks beautiful. One day I will get out to actually see it in person. One day.

yaya said...

I've never been to SF but it's on the list! Only you could write a fun poem about football and mix in the beauty of a lovely city. Good job and good luck to the team!

What a fun post and it did bring some memories back. We lived in San Jose for 3 years and would often go into San Francisco.
Hugs!
