beautiful color in nature.......

We went to San francisco last week and while at the aquarium we saw jelly fish that were so beautiful in color and shape I had to take several photos of them. Of course we did many touristy things but found an apartment by Golden gate park to live like a local, it was great! We walked  and walked all over the city and ate myself sick with yummy food. My favorite things we saw and did were the academy of sciences-very cool planetarium and butterfly santuary, the exploratorium(don't go if you don't like children) wonderful scientific experiments you can try, the redwoods in Muir woods outside of San fran-I better say the Giants game my husband had to see-they did win so that was fun too. Of course I LOVE all the architecture of the victorian houses. I could have spent my entire time walking each neighborhood and taking pics of my favorite house. I have an obsession for houses!!
We found Alamo square and took our photo of the famous row of victorians there. There are some amazing streets to browse through like a native instead of downtown which is packed.
Most important why you go to San fran is the food-we did not go to 5 star places but good food for a decent price-schroeders german food-HUGE portions and so good, hard knox cafe-great fried chicken mac and cheese and corn muffins like cake!!!! We also had great japanese ramen off Geary and 4th-cheap for all they gave you....
