Monday, August 12, 2013

Monday was walk2werq Monday.  I didn't have any trouble getting up early because I'd gone to bed the previous evening at an eyebrow raising 7PM.  Don't judge.  I didn't really have a plan for walking when I got up but one of the guys I'd been hiking with the day before asked where Divisadero ended so with that in mind I walked the entire length of it from where it turns into Castro at Waller all the way into the Marina.  Divisadero's got a LOT of variety on it from this:



To this all within a couple of blocks:



I hadn't spent a lot of time on Divisadero between Geary and California.  There's a ton of restaurants there some and I think it warrants another visit.  I started heading into Pacific Heights and saw this glorious building at Washington.  Love it:



Gold coast Divisadero:




Heading down into the Marina:





I reached the end of Divisadero and realized that the Palace of Fine Arts was only a couple of blocks away.  So I headed over there.  I'd beaten the first tour bus and pretty much had the place to myself:










I was running late so I headed over to Whole Foods on California and then up over Nob Hill into work.  I saw this intersection as I headed into Chinatown.  It challenged my concepts of time and space:



I continued down Sacramento into work.  I headed home for lunch and then went to a spin class after work.  I like a little walk after a spin class so usually on Mondays I walk to Powell muni station.  I stopped by Barney on the way because I'm already conducting reconnaissance for the Love Yourself beauty event next month.  I went to the Le Labo counter to sample Rose 31 which is billed as a unisex rose fragrance and maybe it is for some but on my skin it seemed way too syrupy sweet.  Didn't like.  I headed home and had dinner and then went to bed.  Long day.
