Keegan and Collin were getting a little antsy riding on top of the double decker bus in the heat, so we hopped off at Union Square to walk around and get a bite to eat. It's a neat plaza area with every big name retail store you can think of surrounding it. It's also a great place to see street performers and homeless people looking for a handout. Believe it or not, we saw a homeless guy today who we met in another part of town yesterday and the boys recognized him.
After lunch and a stop by the Levi Strauss retail store, we jumped back on the bus some more city touring
Chris met us in SF at 6:00 and we took him down to the Union Square area to walk around and get a feel for the area too. It was a terrific night to walk around, people watch, and for the boys to hand out a few dollar bills to the many homeless on the streets. Oh, that reminds me of a creative one we saw today called the "Bush Man." He hides behind some thick green leafed branches on the sidewalk near Fisherman's Wharf and as you walk by, he jumps out at you with a loud noise and scares you almost to death.
I probably would have thought it was funny, but I hurt my neck yesterday carrying the backpack during our bike ride and had a bad pinched nerve in my neck. So when he jumped out at us, I felt like I had whiplash. He does this all to get a tip for scaring you. Sounds crazy doesn't it? We heard from Chris's cousin Inger and her husband, Jim, that someone actually had a heart attack and the authorities had dealt with him over his scare tactics
Collin was determined to get him back for scaring me so bad and decided to sneak up on him. So Collin did and the guy had a great sense of humor. He gave Collin a $1 bill out of his tip bucket for scaring him back.
Tonight was Game 1 of the basketball series between our Jazz and The Golden State Warriors. We came back to the RV park and listened to the Jazz win on the radio while the boys played little Game Cube together...they bond over it! Tomorrow is our last day in San Francisco and we're off to China Town God willing. -Kelly
