The Magnificent Coit Tower
There are so many great views of this tower in San Francisco. Here is a shot taken from the Embarcadero looking back upon Telegraph Hill. I believe I took it after a wonderful morning at the Farmer's Market at the Ferry Building (that's another post). It was such a clear and sunny day and I liked how the colors of the buildings really stood out against the sky. Believe it or not, there are these lovely walkways down the hill that take you through these lush and tranquil gardens. These are the gardens where the famous "Parrots of Telegraph Hill" would nest. They actually made a documentary about them a few years back. I still see them everyday and boy can they be loud. There must be at least a hundred of them.
