Part of our afternoon was spent in magnificent Golden Gate Park where we heard a big orchestra play patriotic tunes at the park's 112-year-old bandstand. Afterwards, we settled on a sunny patch of grass, some of us throwing a frisbee, others just chatting it up & watching whiffle ball games. In the evening, we went to Ghiradelli Square to see the city's fireworks show over the water. It was around 55º and very windy, definitely my coldest 4th of July to date. We ate free samples of chocolate (compliments of Ghiradelli) and jumped around to keep warm until 9:30 arrived - the show was beautiful and worth the chilly wait. Fun indeed!
