Nicky, Max, Alex and I drove across the Bay Bridge from Alameda and went to San Francisco's Chrissie Field in the Marina District for gorgeous views of the Golden Gate Bridge. En route, darling Max dozed off and so I stayed in the car with him while Alex and Nicky ventured over to the base of the Bridge.

We saw boats going by and ferries too. Max woke up a little cranky so we hung out at the sea wall long enough for him to cheer up a bit. I think he was a bit jet lagged. Max calmed down considerably when we told him we would be taking a ferry boat the next day ourselves!
We drove through North Beach and Chinatown and Nicky and Max seemed to enjoy seeing the crazy crowded street scenes. We continued on to drive down Lombard Street, touted as "The Crookedest Street In The World". To get there, we were driving straight up the side of what seemed like an alpine mountain, and the trip down is like a roller coaster! Really a gorgeous sight with the Pacific Ocean laid out in front of us.
Finally, we drove to the Castro District. I had assured Nicky there were naked people walking around there. At first we saw a wide range of characters, but nothing resembling a naked person. We parked and looked for a place to get some liquid refreshments. A bistro Alex and I had enjoyed in the past had closed, so we walked the length of the commercial section and "Voila" as Nicky and Max would say. There was a man standing in the sun reading a newspaper completely starkers, nude, naked! The sight made me and Nicky "clutch our pearls", but Max seemed not to notice at all. After a couple of stunned seconds, Alex said "Wow! He's really got an all over tan!" Nicky and I agreed that he did and for a mad moment, discussed how we might take his photo, but we decided that would not be kosher. We crossed the street and walked down to "Harvey's" for margaritas. Nicky agreed these were the best margaritas ever!
We returned to the car to go home. When we passed the corner where the naked man had been, we noticed there were a new bunch of nudie cuties standing around. Nicky whipped out her camera and got one money shot that I know of. She will have to choose to show it or not.
It was a good day!
