California [part 1]

I just returned from a few days in San Francisco and a short trip down the California Coast. San Francisco, as always, is full of wonderful restaurants where we had delicious meals. One of them, which we particularly liked, had an interesting underwater decor. Here is a snapshot of the lighting.

Jellyfish lights

Of course we went shopping, but also sightseeing. We did see

We did go inland at about the level of Watsonville [strawberry capital of California] to buy some very good inexpensive fruit. Then we returned to the coast, in the direction of Monterey.

I will post the rest of our trip tomorrow
