San Francisco and Beyond

We've been in the San Francisco area for almost a week, staying and playing in the Fisherman's Wharf area and North Beach. While Robin was busy working (making a video for Peachpit Press about her principles of design, based on her book The Non-Designer's Design Book), I wandered about, took photos, and sketched. After four days of seafood, wine, and sketching in San Francisco we took the Vallejo ferry to the north side of the bay and drove to Yountville, just south of Napa, to spend several days with Robin's mother.

More food, wine, and sketching still in progress.
