rambles with brad, san francisco march 2003
brad came to visit on his spring break from school in tucson, and we took several rambles in several configurations.  these photos are from the top-of-telegraph-hill hike (top of union looking south, looking north), including both the filbert and greenwich stairs (here's some scenery), and the russian hill ramble which included macondray lane (here's more scenery from macondray, the model for barbary lane in tales of the city, and nearby molinari park).  we also hit aquatic park and the municipal pier that morning.  then we went to meet mark and walked the mission part of 24th street (where I did not find the quince turnover I was looking for, but here are some of our favorite murals).  we dragged brad to the cool slides over in the castro, and mark and brad went down them straight into the mudpuddles at the bottom.  oh, it was sad and very messy (and there is a short movie available).  however, we kept on, going out to the beach so brad could stick his hand into the pacific.  there were some people on the beach in little sulkey-type kite-powered carriages being whipped about by the wind.  we started back across town, traveling through glen canyon.  brad is a good sport, and one of the world's finest houseguests.  thanks for coming, brad, come back anytime.
