Kites aren’t just for kids any more. Experience the artistry of modern kite flying at the Annual Berkeley Kite Festival & West Coast Kite Championships. This annual festival features giant creature kites as big as houses, high flying kite fights, plus free kite making and candy Ddrop for kids.

I'm back after 2 years! I hope you enjoy them.

During the administration of Mayor Dianne Feinstein (1978–1988), San Francisco saw a development boom referred to as "Manhattanization." Many large skyscrapers were built primarily in the Financial District but the boom also included high-rise condominiums in some residential neighborhoods. An opposition movement gained traction among those who felt the skyscrapers ruined views and destroyed San Francisco's unique character. Similar to the freeway revolt in the city decades earlier, a "skyscraper revolt" forced the city to embed height restrictions in the planning code. For many years, the limits slowed construction of new skyscrapers but now THE CITY is BACK IN BUSINESS and MANHATTANIZATION in FULL FORCE.

Thanks for the photos of San Francisco - one of my favourite cities - love it!

To my mind it is a perfect city to live in: Surrounded by water/ocean, hilly aspect & views, easy to walk around, some lovely suburbs & houses, within reach of national parks ( Yosemite)and just a great atmosphere..
