California here we come...

Ok... It's finally settled. Jim and I have been trying to figure out what to do, where to go, etc... For "our" birthdays this year (mine 9/18 and his 9/22). We thought maybe a cruise, or an all inclusive resort, or maybe a European Vacation... Jim has been to LA before, but never to San Francisco, so? Can you guess where we are off to yet?


You got it... The Gay Capitol of the U.S. of A... San Francisco Cahleeforneeah. It's been about 20 years since I have been and I am getting just as excited as Jim is. We booked the flight, using an American Airlines frequent flyer ticket for me, and got the matching flights for Jim on Priceline.com for $249.00 round trip. We have been researching and emailing (over the past week) different hotels in the city to determine the best place to stay, and have finally decided on the Parker Guest House, in the Castro District. We have decided not to rent a car unless we really need to, relying on packaged tours for the Muir Woods/Napa Valley tours, and public transportation along with our 4 good feet for the rest...

Any of you with suggestions and places to go or see are welcome to comment...

I spent the first 12 years of my life in Northern California, but as I said earlier, my last visit was 20 years ago, and I'm sure that things have changed a little since then. I also want to know if there is any locale in SF that even closely resembles "28 Barbary Lane" from the "Tales from the City" books and series?

Anyway, no doubt I will be rambling on this subject for months to come!! For now, it's back to reality, laundry, shopping, housekeeping... Oh and it was 14 frigging degrees out this morning when I got up! brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr...

Over and "Out" for today, from sunny, but chilly, Toano, VA

We just spent a romantic weekend in San Francisco. We stayed at a charming Bed and Breakfast in the Castro called "Inn on Castro". It was our first time staying there. This makes our third gay Bed and Breakfast we have vacationed with in San Francisco. Our favorite has been "The Parker Guest House". We also have stayed at "The Willows Bed and Breakfast Inn". We recommend any of the three. They all do a great job.
