Time For a New Pair of Shoes

This past week we fell into a nice routine of sleeping in, working out, making lunch, doing a neighborhood walking tour, picking up groceries for dinner or eating out, watching the Warriors (or football), followed by an episode of our new TV series, Shameless (very funny), then back to bed.

I have a quick story for those of you who watch Shameless.  Robin and I just started watching season one last week and really started getting attached to the characters (and loving their British accents). However, after watching the Golden Globe awards last Sunday, and seeing several Shameless actors that we didn’t recognize, we figured out that there was an American version of the British series we had been watching.  Being only a few episodes in, we switched to the American version……but I still kind of miss the British actors.  You should have heard our argument about which actor (on the British series) was being played by William H. Macy!

Here are some captioned pictures from our walking tours and meals:

While walking the Embarcadero we came across this monster of a cruise ship….the Crown Princess. It has 900 balconies and accommodates over 3,000 guests.

HMS Surprise. This ship (a replica of a Royal Navy 18th century frigate) was the actual ship commanded by Russel Crowe in the movie Master & Commander: The Far Side of the World.

This 1898 Ferryboat, the Berkeley, operated in the San Francisco for 60 years.  It carried passengers from San Francisco to Oakland 24/7 after the 1906 San Francisco earthquake.
