I think I’ll let the pictures and captions do the talking.

In a Sausalito store window (same town with the Merman in another store's window) there were two, huge, carved, mammoth tusks in the window and these cleverly posed ivory figures on a table.  There were at least a dozen different poses.  Each cost $2,400.

I took this picture from the 6th floor at Macy's looking out at Union Square's tree and skating rink.  The rink is very popular - You have to make online reservations for a one-hour skating time - but is empty here because the Zamboni just cleaned it.

One thought on “Golden Gate Park, Ocean Beach, Sausalito

  1. Hi Katie! Great pictures. The trees in your picture look like Joshua Trees, but I’m not sure. I don’t know how they look in different seasons, but in the summer, they look like something out of a Dr. Seuss book. We see loads of them in the Mohave desert when we drive to San Diego. Hope you guys are feeling better.
