Painted Ladies.......


I love Victorian Houses painted in 3 to 4 colors, so I couldn't wait to get to that section of San Francisco last week. I have always wanted to view the infamous "Painted Ladies". They are actually the row housing you see in the opening credits of "Full House", a 80's show that launched the careers of some famous twins. These houses are so beautiful, I was in love...

I was hoping I could get off the tour bus and gaze a little longer, but with time restraints, we had to keep plugging along. The tour was great! I enjoyed every minute, we were even able to go back and forth over the Golden Gate Bridge, with the wind whipping us up on the top deck. It is definitely worth the extra funds to go on those trips. You learn so much about the history of the buildings and areas surrounding the city.

These houses were so inspiring. Some remind me of cake decorating, with their scalloped edging. Simply marvelous! Something not to miss when visiting the' City by the Bay.'
