I missed several lectures on following the scenic drive route in San Francisco. Two women, Kristine Poggioli and Carolyn Eidson wrote a book, Walking San Francisco’s 49 Mile Scenic Drive, and had been lecturing at various libraries. I really wanted to hear them speak, but my schedule didn’t allow it, over and over. I bought the book, and decided that I would start working on my on foot tour of the scenic parts of the city. Bite by bite.
I also got a book recommendation for Cool Grey City of Love by Jane Chamberlin. I haven’t opened the book yet, but it is apparently about different historical events that happened on different San Francisco streets.
Using these two books as tools, I am planning on walking San Francisco. It will take me a long time, but I’ll work on it. I have a friend who was going to walk with me, but she backed out. I think I can manage at least part of the books each month. Alone or with company.
