I got to play tour guide today, and I think I did a pretty good job, if I do say so myself. Well, I didn't get us lost anyway. I had a great navigational assistant (though, quite the smart ass, he at least kept us going in the right direction... and kept me laughing), and the peanut gallery of hecklers in the back seat kept their commentary to the sights (versus my at-times-questionable sense of direction, & timing).
It was a beautiful clear day, even warm at times. We were able to fit in the Palace of Fine Arts, a drive across the Golden Gate bridge (complete with a short walk around underneath), lunch, a drive down Lombard street, and finished at the beach. The Short Bus liked the beach the best, he had a bit of freedom, and was able to play in the sand for a while. I personally enjoyed the whole day; good friends, lots of laughs, yummy food, beautiful scenery... did I mention good friends? Yeah, I think that was the best part.
