Seems fitting that after yesterday's post about one of my favorite parks in New York, that I follow up with today's photos straight from Alamo Square in San Francisco. When I trekked to the city nearly 5 years ago, I moved into a little corner studio, with two sets of bay windows on the fifth floor, just a few blocks away from Alamo Square. And man, did I love that studio.
Most weekends I would spend walking up to this very park, blanket in tow, and plopping down to read magazines and books, while folks gather in front of the Full House house for photos. (I've since been told that the actual Full House house is not one of the Painted Ladies, but I kinda refuse to believe that -- I'd rather keep the magic alive!)
Granted, I currently don't live all that far from Alamo Square anymore and will often head there with Elvis when I have a chance so he can play with some of the other neighborhood dogs (mainly the pugs). But every time I come back, I'm hit with a mini wave of nostalgia that only this pocket of the city really gives me. Probably because so much of my formative, "I'm on my own" years were spent roaming around Hayes Valley and this very park -- sitting, thinking about work or whatever problems I was facing at the time, starting new friendships and relationships,and enjoying my new life in a city that excited (and still excites!) me.
Oh San Francisco, I truly will leave a part of my heart here.
