Living in San Francisco - A November Sunday - 11/13/11

Today the weather was gorgeous, my listings are all sold or pending so it was time to spend the day with my husband.

We took a fast-paced walk down Jackson Street in San Francisco, through Chinatown and the Financial District, about 1.8 miles to the Ferry Building. We enjoyed a 30-minute or so ferry ride to the town (and island) of Alameda, just off the Oakland shore, near Jack London Square. Once there, we walked around the former Naval Air Station, and toured the USS Hornet, the aircraft carrier which is now a museum. Amazing how large it is!

After a fast-paced walk to get a deli sandwich, we high tailed it back to the ferry dock (with 4 minutes to spare!)

Russian HillOur return walk took us to see 6 open houses (what else does a Realtor® do on a Sunday off?) in the Russian Hill area of San Francisco. You can bet we climbed many hills and staircases, both inside and outside of homes.

All in all, a perfect day! We hiked around 10 miles, enjoyed new sights, yummy food, good time together, and I continued my education of the condo market (and one fantastic single-family home) in San Francisco.

Whether you live in San Francisco, San Mateo County or the Silicon Valley, why not spread your wings a bit and take in a new day's adventure?

Nice work on the pics and slideshow, Lottie! I really like the mix of architecture in the city skyline.

I am hoping that by this time next year I will be able to walk at least a mile...It sounds like you had a wonderful day!

I used to take my car into San Francisco for service and I'd spend the entire day walking all over the city.  So many great places to see and great exercise too.  Your post brought back memories.

Good for you Lottie for taking the time to enjoy what was a beautiful day around the Bay Area. I spent the night on the USS Hornet on a Cub Scout trip with my son last year and it was very cool to say the least. That is one large ship with a ton of history.

This was an awesome day shared by you for all of us.  I had to laugh - my husband and I go to open houses on my days off as well!  :)
