Walking in the city

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.
