It's Tops! (...and it is, too!)
This morning, I woke up at 8:30 with a craving for blueberry pancakes from our favorite Pancake joint: "It's Tops". Dick and I have been going to this old diner for years - we were drawn in by their marquee which claimed that they had "The Best Hot Cakes in SF!" (I believe it to be a true statement)
So, we headed out at 9:00 (earlier than most folks in SF) and treated ourselves to a yummy breakfast.
After we finished, we decided to take a drive around the City.
We headed into Golden Gate Park via John F. Kennedy Drive. Along the way, we passed the Bison. I love the fact that we have bison in our park!

We drove up towards The Cliff House and decided to take a walk along the beach. The beach was really calm and quiet, and was just beautiful. As we walked along the water, we enjoyed watching all of the dogs, big and small running amuck on the beach, having a grand 'ol time!
When we came home, I noticed that most of the Ginkgo Trees along our block have turned golden. They stay like this for only 2-3 weeks before they loose all of their leaves for the winter.

What a nice way to start the weekend. I'm so glad that I had my camera with me to capture these moments.
