san francisco

I spent ten days of spring break in SF and driving along the coast south of there. It was wonderful and beautiful and all of that. The vibe on the west coast is so different from the east–I know everybody says that but it was quite something to witness it myself.

Muir Woods:


Bernard the Gopher:

Moss Landing:

Big Sur:

Henry Miller Memorial Library @ Big Sur:

Big Sur:

San Francisco itself:

Japanese Tea Garden:

At the waterfront, obviously:

North Beach:

The Beat Museum (Jack Kerouac and Allen Ginsberg are the two in the middle. Neal Cassady is on the right and a friend of his whose name I can’t remember is on the left):

Also, while on this trip, I finally finished Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close by Jonathan Safran Foer.  I  cried intermittently for the last 50 pages.  It was unbelievably touching.  The only other book that came close to moving me that much is Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?.  (I always feel weird typing a question mark and a period right next to each other)  I highly highly highly recommend it.
