Duffy's Trip to San Francisco - Part 23 - To the Walt Disney Family Museum - June 13, 2015

"Oh boy! We are almost there!!"

"Also, there's water. Hi!"


"We're here! We're here!"


"We are waiting."

"And waiting."

Awww! This was inside. I don't know if it was because it was between Memorial Day and 4th of July?

"Two tickets, please."

The museum is split up into several rooms, which gives it a bit more of an intimate feel (but hinders progressing back into previous rooms...though you can go around and go through again if you need to).



Yes, Walt Disney drove an ambulance (not this ambulance) in World War I (after lying about his age; oh dear).


"Mr. Disney was naughty, but I guess it worked out all right."

Duffy's Trip to San Francisco - Part 22 - To the Presidio - June 13, 2015

Oh no! Today is the day we leave San Francisco!

Goodbye to our lovely room!

We are walking...

...down Lombard Street...

...and walking...

"Oh! The Palace of Fine Arts!"

To....the Presidio!

"That was a bit of a long walk."

This dome should be familiar to anyone who visited Disney California Adventure back in the day. They built it for the "Golden Dreams" show and repurposed it in Ariel's Undersea Adventure.

"Whoa! Philo T. Farnsworth!'

"I'll bet that is where Professor Farnsworth on Futurama got his name!"

"WHOOOA. Yoda it is!"
"I was trying to mime his motion...not sure it worked very well...I don't have a staff.  :( "

These old military buildings were utilitarian yet pretty.

Duffy's Trip to San Francisco - Part 21 - Marina Middle School - June 12, 2015

"Still Duffy...still walking...I believe this was a library! We went in for a minute. It looked like fun for locals, with lots of computers, but nothing much for us."

"ARCHITECTURE!"

"We have walked a whole lot today."

"I think I will just rest here a bit..."

"OH! This is a school?!?!"

"So impressive!"

"Um...are we almost back to the room, though?"

"San Francisco does look very different from any other place I've ever been. My human says that's true for her too!"


"So different!"

"Oh! Heya, Mater!"

"Hm...I look shocked but I don't remember why...."

"That building back there is beautiful, isn't it?"
"So much detail!"

"There was a back way to get into our hotel. With a mirror and everything."

"So fancy!"

"I...don't remember if this was a snack that night or breakfast the next morning. (I know, I know, I'm in the same clothes! I only have one nice outfit and I wanted to wear it to be respectful of Mr. Disney. Please don't judge me...)"

Duffy's Trip to San Francisco - Part 20 - Back to the Waterfront - June 12, 2015

"So the human and I kept walking and whoa! We are back by the waterfront!"

"The human remembers the museum because it has neat and free restrooms (or at least it did in 2015!)."
 
"Alcatraz!"

"Such a nice view."

"This was a different part of the (small) museum. So colorful!"

"Can you guess where this art is?

"Yes, it's the bathroom! So classy!"

"Right across the street.....mmmm chocolate. Wait; weren't we just here today?"

"We started walking back toward the room. Okay, the human was doing more walking than I was."
