It was kinda funny that the Cardinals fans outnumbered the Rockies fans at the beginning of the game. We showed up early to see the guys warm up and just enjoy the atmosphere. I love being outside watching baseball and enjoying the feel. Takes me back to being a kid and playing baseball on summer evenings.
Look at all the buds. I had tons of seeds in the fall and I've put them all around the yard. We'll see what happens this summer.
He also gave me some roots from his Fig trees. I really want them to work. They're surviving the winters but they are bit way back by the cold and have to start all over each spring. I'm going to build a little protecting greenhouse for them that I can put over them during the worst part of winter and see if that gives them a head start in the spring. Here is a pic of them.
Kinda sad looking right now, but I'm hoping for more growth this year.

A bright, sunny spot in the grove of 250 foot tall trees.
Pixies in fern gully.
One of the many walk through trees.
Looks like a rock in the creek doesn't it? It's a log from a long time ago. We hiked probably two miles on this trip.
Back in downtown San Francisco Sarah wanted to get her picture in front of the statue dedicated to Lillie Hitchcock Coit. She's the one the Coit Tower is named after. Did I tell you her story? When she was a young girl she was recued by firefighters and she was enamored with them from then on. This is a statue dedicated to the firemen who rescued her. Sarah loves this statue. She's (Sarah not Lillie) not grumpy, she just woke up from her nap back over the GG bridge.
Back to Coit Tower. This time it was open so we went up inside to the top to look out at the city. This is looking south toward the Market District with the Transamerica Pyramid.
After Coit Tower we headed to Ghirardeli Square for dinner at McCormick & Kuleto's. It's an upscale restaurant that overlooks SF Bay and the Olympic Swim Club of San Francisco. This was the view out the window we were sitting at for our dinner.
