We've lived in the Bay for over a year now and while we always make sure we take visitors to see the major landmarks (Golden Gate Bridge, Coit Tower, Bay Bridge, Alcatraz, Fisherman's Wharf, etc.) somehow The Painted Ladies always get cut from the list once time starts going fast. Well, my sister visited last year for nearly a month and this time will be here for just over two weeks. We are saving the major landmarks for next week when her best friend visits, but we were near the Divisadero and the Western Addition for an event she wanted to check out, so we made a stop by Alamo Square to check out the famous Painted Ladies. It was disappointing that the park seems to be under construction, but the ladies looked beautiful and even in the middle of the week, there were plenty of tourists milling about. San Francisco laughs at the Summer Solstice and it is cold and windy regardless of the season.
