Then I headed to Japantown which was gorgeous:
These pretty Victorians are on Bush St at Buchanan:
I walked through Pacific and Presidio Heights and took a bunch of pics along then way:
This grand mansion is super fantastic. It has a pretty little garden up front:
This was the Egyptian consulate for many years. They completed a massive renovation on the building just a couple of years ago. The sign in the window now says that the consulate has been moved to LA. Too bad. I wonder what they'll do with the building:
I loved the glamorous entrance to this building:
This is pretty Presidio Terrace. It's full of very glamorous homes and although it's supposed to be entrance restricted, nobody's ever chased me off when I've visited either on foot or on a bike:
This home is completely unsuccessful. Who thought a Santa Fe style building would ever work in a Beaux Arts neighborhood? Also, this building isn't even really Santa Fe, it's some kind of a southwestern pastiche and it's a complete disaster. Do not like.
This mid century marvel has a lot going on. I don't know how successful it is, but it's super interesting:
I walked back up Arguello and then followed a path past the Presidio Golf Club towards Mountain Lake Park. I came out of the park at 8th and started heading home. I saw this fantastic building on Cornwall. Love it:
I headed home via Whole Foods on Stanyan where I purchased and consumed a surprising amount of vegan pastry. I fed the dogs and myself dinner and then I got cleaned up and we waited for Mr. Poe to get home. Long day.
