On a High!

A couple of weekends ago, my best girlfriend & I spent the weekend in San Francisco and the surrounding area.  We saw a production of Peter Pan, which was spectacular!  The "flying", the special effects were so wonderful.  When this touring show comes to your city, DON"T MISS IT!  No photography was allowed, so I have no pictures to show you, sorry.  You can watch a short video HERE.

Friday night we stayed at the Hyatt Regency at Embarcadero Center.  The tent theater for Peter Pan was erected in the Ferry Park on the Embarcadero property, so it was a 3 minute walk from the hotel entrance. Even if the show weren't so close, we both love this hotel!  It has very interesting architecture, partially a pyramid shape, which is evident on the inside as well as outside.  Standing in the hotel's Atrium, you can see all the way up to the top floors.  It also has an 18th story circular private restaurant/bar which provides a 360 degree view!  Click HERE and take the "virtual tour", and you'll get an idea of how cool this building is!

On Saturday morning, we had our complimentary breakfast in the Regency Club.  (Our show package gave us a room on a private floor & access to the "club", La-Te-Da!  I'm posting photos of the circular room & the views below.

We sat at this table.

Bay Bridge

See this piece of concrete detail?  There was a window washer walking on this with NO tether, bucket and squeegee in hand!  Really!  No kidding!  18 floors up! 
We had to leave because my girlfriend was getting sick watching him!

You can see the top of this concrete thing.  It is about 18" wide.

Market Street, I think.

Ferry Building

Second story rooftop garden.

We had a great time.  San Fransisco is a beautiful city.  I even bought a couple of things at a street fair.  I'll be showing those next time. 

Cheers!  Chris
