Apologies in advance: this post was written over the course of this afternoon…
We are standing on the terrace rooftop of Macyâ€™s waiting for a table at the Cheesecake Factory. Below us is the famous Union Square; it sprawls across a city block, lit by a beautiful blue sky.Â Toni is standing next to me snapping pictures on my old Olympus digital camera.Â Union Square, recently decked out in Valentines splendor, looks impressive, if understated.
Itâ€™s been a mildly relaxing day.Â Today, shopping day, started around 10Â am andÂ found me stationed for a long time at a Borders.Â Â Toni went the max at Victoriaâ€™s Secret.
Itâ€™s not a touristy day for us today. Weâ€™re all about relaxation and having fun.Â Toni picked up a free water bottle from Nike Town where they had odd elevators and multi levels.
We bought a new suit case at Macyâ€™s to cover our increasing luggage weight.Â Â I bought several Criterion DVDs (can only get here)Â and the complete Far Side collection â€“ adding to the weight issue.
Itâ€™s a simply stunning 70Â°F day and I doubt weâ€™ll be able to stay in the city long. Â Â Golden Gate Park beckons.
We didnâ€™t quite make it â€“ yet. Â Â After lunch we ended up at H & M as Toni shopped for new suits. Â Â As I write this,Â lâ€˜m listening to some kind of remix of The Churchâ€™s â€˜Under the Milky Wayâ€™ J
We’ve finally left and have returned to the hotel..
