5: chinatown

to someone i love so dearly

it's your birthday
and that makes my
heart sing with
happiness; please
come back to visit
soon, and we will
ride the cable cars

so much to love about san francisco 4: The Haight

this is from a
to-die-for shop
on the haight; i
have the card in
my (again, voluminous)
files. when it turns up
i promise to post the
name. please go there.

mail early in the day (more to love in sf)

i adore the huntington hotel
it is charming and warm and
somewhat quite grand, which you
really can't tell from these photos
because i have a habit of taking
pictures of rather odd things but
somewhere in my voluminous
photo bank (too voluminous,
must sort soon) there are better
pics of this sweet hideaway and if
you go there don't forget to have
dinner at The Big 4 downstairs or
you will miss half the fun. yep.

(plus there is a heavenly spa)
