SkyWatch Friday- SF Skyline

San Franicisco looking East toward Oakland. The tall building on the left is the Hyatt Union Square and the green Nike sign in the forefront faces Union Square.

Sunrise in San Francisco. Absolutely Beautiful!

It's Friday!!! And that means another SkyWatch! This is the view from the window of my room at The Drake Hotel in San Francisco. I was so blessed to get away for a few days after Christmas, although it seems like forever ago now! Did a lot of tourist stuff but my fave was the just being on the streets of San Francisco (hmmm??? sounds familiar. heheheh) at night with everyone else. There were full bands playing on the street corners and a puppet show/ balloon maker handing out balloons at 10 PM! It is crazy and I loved every minute of it! What I think is so great is that I can feed my horses on my rural hill in the morning when it's perfectly quiet except for the howl of coyotes and the cry of a hawk, then jump in my car and at lunchtime be standing on the corner of Market and Broadway in SF with hundreds of people, cars, buses, cable cars, taxis, restaurants, theatres, and all that makes SF so great! It's a grat place to visit. (Glad I don't live there!)
Another fave was finally getting to the Ferry Building. If you love to cook- you have to go there!!! It is like a Foodie's Disneyland! Hope you enjoy- to see more SkyWatch Friday from around the globe, click here.

Street band at Union Square. The guy in front is the bass player/ PR guy. He was trying to get the girls to dance with him.

Puppeteer / Balloon Maker. shes making Elmo Balloons! See the little kids in the chairs in front? It was 10 PM! At that age my kids were in bed!!!

I like skywatching in the city too, too many pretty things to see along with the sky.

Hi Caprice, we meet again. These post is very interesting. I agree to you, the sunset in San Francisco is absolutely beautiful! Looking again at my sepia photo in your perspective, I guess it could be a Sherlock Holmes crime scene ;).
