The hike was not tough, but it provided some really nice views as we descended Nob Hill and ascended Telegraph Hill.
And a cute Ligurian Bakery that sells only focaccia and closes each day when they sell out. (They were closed this day.)
|And some painted dogs...|
|And some ridiculous tourists on Segways. One of them crashed trying to go up Telegraph Hill.|
The tower was built with money left by Lillie Hitchcock Coit. It stands 210 feet tall and resembles the tip of a fire hose nozzle. Apparently that is just coincidental, despite the fact that Ms. Coit volunteered with the fire brigade throughout her lifetime.
The inside of the monument is covered in murals. The murals have a working-man feel, which makes sense: the monument and murals were erected during the depression to create jobs.
|Does anyone see Lucy in the back?|
|Making wine and dried apricots: two of my favorite things.|
And after all that culture...we stopped at Rogue Brewery for a beer :) The end.
