While my friend Bethany was here to visit, we had to experience San Francisco! My wonderful Dad was able to coordinate a day trip where we hit several major highlights in only 7 hours in the city.
First, we took the ferry boat under Golden Gate bridge and around Alcatraz Island.
After clam chowder and doughnuts, we headed to the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. I love to look at art, and we got to see some incredible works by Andy Warhol, Frida Kahlo, Diego Rivera, Picasso, Georges Braque, and so many others. There were works of art which took incredible amounts of talent, such as this:
Then, there were the modern art pieces designed to "challenge your assumptions" about what constitutes art. Call me uncultured, but I find a pile of dirt or a plain blue canvas a bit difficult to revere as famous artwork...
I love the architecture of San Francisco, and just the busy atmosphere of the streets with the smell of salt and shops and the ocean breeze intermingling.
