Today I wasn’t scheduled to hike up to visit Doctor G, and the sun had come back out, so I decided to walk back down through the pretty streets south of Mission Street. On a mission. A mission for coffee. Philz, I’m coming for you.


If you have to walk a few miles every day, you really could have a much worse city to do it in. I’m crazy about all the GREEN along this route. Garden District, San Francisco style…

It’s a beautiful day in the neighborhood…

Not kidding, no filter or photoshopping of any kind:sky blue house against bright blue sky

When your house matches the sky… sky blue house against bright blue sky

Mission District

This house (above) is immaculately maintained and landscaped, always—I had just assumed it’s owners were really into their house, but then I noticed some badge stickers in the window of this front door and looked up the address: you can stay here! It’s actually a bed and breakfast, not a private residence. You can also take a look inside, if you are curious.

Succulents for a front lawn…

Such a pretty day. Feeling better.


Where should I go tomorrow?
