Impressionists - from Paris to San Francisco

Today we are driving into San Francisco to visit both the de Young Museum and the Legion of Honor California Palace to see wonderful early impressionistic art on loan from the Musee d'Orsay in Paris.

In these difficult financial times it's great to get another chance to see this glorious art without having to endure a 11 hour plane ride, to say nothing of the security lines!

Not much could have pulled us away from our total relaxation mode, but ...
And after, we will top off our "day in Paris" with a delicious dinner at Zazie in Cole Valley, C'est magnifique!


  1. How did it get to be Thursday. I wanted to comment on A.Lemon's stylish luggage, the swell places you visited in Berkeley (be still my heart...all that crepe paper at Castle In the Air) and here we are, seeing French treasures in San Francisco. One of my son's closest friends if from Sebastapol, a Berkeley grad and we are continually envious of her favorite haunts, some of which we've visited, some not. I hope it has been a wonderful time, with more tales to tell.

  2. What a wonderful trip THAT is! I didn't know they got works on loan from Paris! I haven't been to San Francisco in about 2 dillion years!
