This is a true Christmas town, with all these redwood slat and shingle homes set amid huge redwoods, all it’s missing is snow.
and there were reindeer in a paddock in the back of the science museum in San Francisco!
I had forgotten how cold it can get in San Francisco. We saw plenty of rain and gray skies, but that didn’t stop us.
Here are some interior views of the science museum.
Martha said this was a must see, and of course, I always do what Martha says. The architects, Herzog and de Meuron, are quite the rage now. Note how the tower lines up with the mass of the main building. And unfortunately, the show, and exhibition of Impressionist paintings from the Musee D’Orsay, was sold out.
I was missing nature, sounds of rushing water, trees, the scents of moss on the rocks and deep forest. Want more of that on my last day (which is today).
We had fun, too. One of our first days here, we went to the House of Air, one big trampoline. Here’s one picture in motion, and one at rest.
We did have a happy holiday!
