However, that Saturday that I went to San Francisco also coincided with Fleet Week! So I opted for Fleet Week instead of the Post-Impressionism exhibition since I still have December to go see the exhibition, while Fleet Week is just for the weekend (well...of this year, anyways =]
I must point out, traffic in San Francisco is terribly on regular days, but during the time when the city hosts Fleet Week...well, traffic is insane. I spent half an hour on the same street and, from my GPS, only drove 3/4 of a mile. Walkers beat us!
So, on the way to Golden Gate Park, I saw a poster on the back of the bus and I made my sister take a picture of it. Many of you will appreciate the humor.
We didn't actually get to do down to the Marina to see the Blue Angels fly since as I've said, traffic was insane-bumper to bumper insane. And I wasn't too enthusiastic about parking (or lack of) either. So I just drove around aimlessly. Many other drivers were driving around aimlessly as well. I saw this one car with its emergency lights on and as we passed it, we found that the driver was gone. So I'm guessing soooomeone decided to ditch his car, engine running, doors open, to go and take snapshots. The most amusing and probably most efficient and cleverest as well were the people on their roof. Best. Front. Seats. Ever.
And of course, thanks to my darling sister, we got some awesome shots of the Blue Angels flying across the amazingly clear blue sky.
