I Left My Heart...

I have been promising pictures of my trip to San Francisco. I left home without my camera and had to purchase a disposable camera and I am disappointed that the photos were not as clear as my digital would have been.

One thing on my list to do was to ride a trolley car so Wednesday night after the conference we sat out to explore a little while. These pictures are a little out of order but it doesn't matter as the story is the same!


This heart is at Union Square. I loved the painting of the Golden Gate Bridge and had to have my picture taken with it.



We ate at Joe's Crab Shack. Being a Wyoming girl, I had to experience wearing a bib while I ate. This is Judy from Montana. We became fast friends as she does the same job in Montana that I do in Wyoming.


This is the trolley that we rode, I am not sure if we started on Hyde Street and ended on Powell Street or if it went the opposite direction. Since the open part of the trolley was full when we boarded, I told everyone who boarded the car part that whoever sits there had to sing when we topped Nob Hill. I know this sounds strange and I was not drunk or on drugs but being from Wyoming and living a wish, I was a little more forward than I usually am. Needless to say, everyone complied, well, eventually. I had to sing the song three times before I got everyone to join in and I was happy when even the ones who didn't speak English sang along with me. Here are the words:

I left my heart in San Francisco
High on a hill, it calls to me.
To be where little cable cars
Climb halfway to the stars!
The morning fog may chill the air
I don't care!
My love waits there in San Francisco
Above the blue and windy sea
When I come home to you, San Francisco,
Your golden sun will shine for me!

Once we topped Nob Hill, I didn't make anyone sing any longer. I was in awe of the lights and the city.


This is Danny from Cincinatti. We had a lot of fun singing together. I am sure he thought I was nuts but he went along with the fun.


I took this picture for my sister and brother-in-law.

I am planning on going back to San Francisco someday. It is a great city to visit.
I hope you enjoyed my journey!
Jo
