A few weeks ago Rem and I had a play day in San Francisco. The campus where I work is closed on Fridays for eight weeks every summer (LOVE) and I like to make the most of these special days. Here are some of our pictures.
Not very far away, we visited WOOD LINE, which is also in the Presidio.
We searched for a labyrinth but didn’t find it on this visit.
Instead, we climbed this beautiful mosaic stairway.
It starts deep in the ocean and goes all the way up to the sun!
From the ocean to a flowing river with plants and animals along the side.
And then, above the earth to the sky, moon and stars. The moon is pieced together from pieces of mirror.
The stairway has handcrafted shapes of animals, flowers, fish, birds and stars with names of local sponsors pressed into them. It is really an incredible work of art.
And finally, at the very top is the sun.
At the top, looking back down.
From the top, we crossed the street and started climbing a whole bunch more steps to Grand View Park. If it had been a clear day, I’m sure the views would have been quite grand.
Our final destination? The concrete slides at Seward Mini Park.
We both had a few runs on the slides and Rem said it was his favorite thing of the whole day.
Thanks for sliding by. Tomorrow I’m starting the 30 Day Journal Project, #30DayJournal!
