Busy work day today, but had an errand to run on Haight Street so used that as an opportunity for a walk. Not a sight-seeing day in particular, but if I have to run and errand, this is a great route to travel—interesting neighborhoods to walk through, good hills, and a few parks along the way, like…

Duboce Park. Good for picnics and largely a dog park, but sadly devoid of dogs on this passing. Maybe I’ll have better luck on the way back! 😉

I love this yellow house just by the park. It reminds me of Hansel and Gretel and fairy tales for some reason. Perfect fresh butter color…06-22-15-DuboceHaight02

No dogs yet, but the birds were singing…

Passing by Buena Vista Park and wishing I had time to hike the trails to the top today…

Haight Street windows… In my most recent past life in Victorian England, I’m quite certain I had one of the most extensive curio cabinets around: fossils, butterfly wings, seashells… rocks! I don’t even go inside these shops because I would want to take home one of each stone and mineral from every store…

Apparently, this used to be a Boston Terrier Crossing, but is currently a Dachshund trail… (Now I want to know why the dog breed changed when they re-painted the sign!)
