My day alone - vacation

On Thursday of my vacation I had the day alone. Yay! I just went and wandered in Golden Gate park. Lots of people out since it was a beautiful day. Lots of tourists in the areas of the museums, and I generally stayed away from them. Damn tourists!

Saw this cool greened-over pond. Notice anything?

Also sat and watched some guys doing lawn bowling. And had a woman go by me on her skateboard. Made the mistake of looking her in the eye. "Want some buds?" Uh, no thanks. I'm assuming it's pot, but is it something else?

I also ran into the children's area. Carousel! I decided I hadn't been on one in a while, so took a ride.

What's pathetic is that I started getting motion sickness.

I also just stopped and read a book. Of course, I was a third of the way through it and realized I had already read it (Girls' Guide to Hunting and Fishing). Oh well. I just sat in the sun and relaxed.

Now THAT's a vacation day.

That sounds like a fun day! Let's see - in that first photo I spy a little parade of turtles.

I should've gone on the carousel at the fair last weekend.

That green pond, turtle photo looks just like one Crazy4Coens had! How cool! Are those not real turtles then, or do they just spend a lot of time there? Hm.

Sounds like a wonderful day to me...and I would totally read The Girl's Guide to Hunting and Fishing again :-)

TURTLES UP THE LOG!!! I adore turtles. They are the same turtles that Sunny photographed too... same pond. How cool is that?

Wonderful day in the most wonderful place. I love it there. Lucky you!

When I lived in San Francisco, I used to wander around golden Gate Park on my days off. It was always so nice.
