Driving into the old town sections of towns and cities, it captures our awe and admiration for it’s architecture and we know instantly that it’s one of those places in which a closer look through our camera lens would be a memory well preserved. Old buildings beautifully restored into working spaces of shops below and apartments above. Tree lined streets, meridians and small alcoves; these are the types of places that enhance the atmosphere of a walk into the past.
Eureka, Petaluma and even San Francisco were such places. Although it is not always the buildings. One must look to see who inhabits these streets. What kind of shops, what kind of people. All is something to spark the interest of this ol’ gal.
Petaluma found us visiting family and friends, taking in old town, a movie and a trip to San Francisco.
San Francisco wouldn’t be the same without the Golden Gate bridge. Trying to catch a snap shot on a rainy day was quite another story. Lunch with friends we had met in Granada, cute boutiques and afternoon strolls. It couldn’t have been a nicer time.
I hope you have enjoyed our trip from Priddis, Alberta to northern British Columbia and down the 101 Pacific coast highway of the US. Until next time… au revoir por le moment y adiós por ahora!
