In Pictures: Flying Over San Francisco

Before I left San Francisco, a friend of mine (who is also a licensed pilot) promised to show me the beauty of San Francisco in a way I had never seen before.

By air.

And it was breathtaking.

Since I've been posting the remainder of my San Francisco photos, I thought it would be nice to share some photos of my "day of flight."

Oh yes, and as for food, my friend and I stopped by for a simple lunch of turkey sandwiches on rye in Columbia, California.

We ended our trip in Oakland, California, at the best-barbecue-joint in the East Bay,
Everett and Jones, where we filled our empty stomachs with a variety of barbecued meats including (1) hot sausage links, (2) toothsome and tender brisket, and (3) sticky barbecued ribs. Unfortunately, my camera ran out of space after taking a picture of our sides, which included warm potato salad, sweet and sticky yams, and slow-cooked collard greens.

Flying over San Francisco was an experience-of-a-lifetime. I hope this post gave you a glimpse into the beauty of the Bay Area.


  1. Whoa, what a treat! The ride and the food. Why don't I have friends who are pilots?

  2. I second what Elmo said! That photo of all the piers is just awesome!

  3. simply beautiful. I visited SF, for the first time, last month and loved it. I wished I had known about your fav. bbq place, maybe next time because I am def. going back.

  8. I miss all of you and appreciate all of your comments Elmo Monster, Wandering Chopsticks, Liberal Foodie, Food Hoe, Aria, Belizegial, and Melinda!
