This morning I took a very chilly run up Market Street spending more time freezing at the stoplights than running but it gave me a great appetite for breakfast at La Boulange, a wonderful French style bakery in the Hayes Valley district. Fresh baked croissant with ham and scrambled egg plus a side of fresh fruit. Coffee is served in a large bowl - needs two hands!
San Francisco is a beautiful city with a mild maritime climate, changing only a little from winter to summer - never very hot or very cold! The streets are filled with the most amazing range of trees all planted by Friends of the Urban Forest - a largely voluntary organisation. Where else would you find, Magnolia, Ficus, Arbutus, Callistemon, Pittosporum, Eucalyptus, Ceanothus, Cordyline, Phoenix, Photinia, Persea, (avocado) Metrosideros and a host of others all growing in the sidewalks? It's like a citywide botanic garden! But more about that after a future visit. But first the tedious flight back to the UK later this afternoon!
