California Vacation Part 6

We spent part of an afternoon shopping up and down the Haight/Ashbury area which apparently is popular to some. Our relatives who live close by called it “The Haight” (pronounced like “hate”).

Large vintage record store
Alley off of Haight St.

It was in this area out of all of San Francisco that I saw the most number of homeless people.

After The Haight we went to Balmy alley to check out the art murals which apparently change from time to time.

More sites around the Balmy alley area. My husband thought it was the ‘mission district” but I don’t know.

We also just kind of drove around San Francisco checking out all the architecture of the houses crammed together on the hills of the city. Some of the hills were so steep you couldn’t even see over the top of where the street went. It was like going over a cliff 😂.

We also drove by the Full House house!

  1. I love visiting the Haight area to people watch. Beware of the “contact high”. Lol. There is/was a cool store there called “Love to Death” it is/was an “oddity” store. Was a TV show for a bit some years ago. Those are not homeless, they are hippies. Lol. I would see more bums in and around the Union Square area of the city than in the Haight.

    1. I don’t know if we were ever in the Union Square. Doesn’t sound familiar. I saw a lot of hippies lol. One girl was screaming at a store owner who was hosing off his sidewalk up the hill from where she set up camp. I think he might have been doing it on purpose to run them off, away from his store. 🤔😬


      1. Lol…. There’s also a lot of bums in the tenderloin area and I did notice some in the Mission District. Pretty much wherever you go in SF you’ll run into some
