San Francisco (Be Sure to Wear Flowers in Your Hair), #601


Yay!!!!!   It’s vacation day!  I am so giddy with excitement to go and have some fun, fun, fun with no alarm clocks and where make up is optional.  I’m flying to Sacramento today en route to Lake Tahoe, NV, one of the most beautiful places on Earth.  San Francisco was never part of the itinerary until we realized it was only 1-1/2 hours from Sacramento.  So, we’re making a quick stop at the Golden Gate Bridge and Lombard Street to give the kiddos a little bit of culture.

I love San Francisco!  It is a world-class city, and I will even go as far as to say that I could easily live there and envy my friends that do.  Don’t get me wrong, The Tucson Songstress would never betray her lovely oasis in the desert, but San Francisco rocks!

So blog readers, follow my blog over the next couple of days for some fun travel shots and happy little vacation stories, and of course, for some good music, too.  Forgive me if  I skip a day or two of blogging.  You never know what kind of Wifi situation you’re getting in until you’re actually there.  Fingers crossed for good technology!

I leave you all with the song that will be buzzing through my head all day!.  Scott McKenzie made “San Francisco (Be Sure to Wear Flowers in Your Hair)” famous at the Monterey Pop Festival in 1967.  It was actually written by John Phillips of the Mamas and the Papas, but McKenzie sang it at the festival, and it was an instant hit.  Click HERE to hear the very best (in my opinion) of San Francisco music, and you can be rest assured, there will be a flower in my hair today!
