This past weekend we stayed at the Palace Hotel in San Francisco:
There is always a lush arrangement of roses in the center of the lobby:
It’s famous for its Garden Court:
…where we had breakfast every morning:
The hotel is also famous for this Maxfield Parrish painting “The Pied Piper,” which hangs above the bar in its more casual restaurant:
We thought the Palace suited the Countess perfectly:
She did too:
We had lunch before the wedding at Fisherman’s Wharf.
The Countess ordered crab:
It was fairly large.
Kind of like this one:
We took a walk around the pier:
We saw the famous sea lions of Pier 39:
And finally, in keeping with the ocean theme, I give you…….seaweed:
How can you not love a city where the 7-11 has roasted seaweed snacks right by the cash register?
Tomorrow: pictures of the wedding.
