A Story of Someone- 8/2

Steve and I went away for a few days before my crazy work travel begins and he goes back to school. In April, on a tip from Cyrena, we went to Cambria and fell in love with the peace and quiet of the area. After a night there, we continued up along the coast and ended up in San Francisco for a night- a favorite city of ours where we got engaged. We had a delicious meal at an Italian restaurant we stumbled upon and had a really enjoyable night in the city. So much so that Steve wanted to do the exact same trip again.

I knew we were going to be in San Francisco for my Story of Someone, I just wasn't sure where the day would take me. On Saturday night, up for an adventure, Steve and I drove to a set of mosaic stairs that I read about online while exploring stair walks in the city. They were magnificent and so much more beautiful than I was prepared for. I bounded up those stairs only to get to another set (of ordinary stairs) that led to a wonderful viewpoint of the city. I couldn't stop the smile on my face for the rest of the night. It was such a spontaneous and unusual end to our night and I just loved it. I was bummed that my photos just wouldn't do it justice. I tried hard to get some photos, but you couldn't grasp how beautiful the stairs were at night. So I was already plotting my return, when I'd sneak out of the hotel room while Steve was still sleeping.

And that's exactly what I did.

I got there just about 8:00 a.m. and had the place to myself when I first arrive. With tired legs and a little slower than the night before, I followed the same route up the two different sets of stairs to the view point. When I came back down, I was a little bummed that someone was now obstructing my photo of the empty mosaic stairs, but then I got really happy knowing I could use this man as my Story of Someone. I went from being annoyed to being grateful that someone was there to "get in my way". Thanks to this stranger, I had the most beautiful backdrop to my photo. 

I have climbed a lot of stairs, especially recently, and I can honestly say that these are the prettiest stairs I've ever seen and climbed! I look forward to going back and exploring more staircases in San Francisco and other cities I'll be traveling to in the next few months.
