An awesome birthday weekend! LX7 & ZS25

Monday was my birthday, and so I took the day off from work for the first time. My wife takes her birthday off every year; so this year she pushed and I relented; and I am glad I did. My wife, my daughter and I (and the dog) went into the city on Sunday to listen to this swing dance band place at Delores Park. It has been decades since I have been there and wow, what a treat. First the weather was amazing, the music was terrific (Mindy and I even danced to one song) and the people there were even more incredible. It was a testament to San Francisco diversity and youth. Mindy and I felt pretty old there, but that didn't stop us from having a blast and breathing in the sweet, herbal air that was all over the place. Then we went to this cool rum bar, Smuggler's Cove ( and then we spent the night at the Kabuki Hotel. Monday we had breakfast at our favorite restaurant (Rose's Cafe), which was featured in the movie Mrs. Doubtfire; a walk at Crissy Field to see the Mark Di Suvero sculptures and then dinner at the Farm Shop in Marin. It was a terrific birthday celebration and the photography was primo in SF. I took the LX7 and ZS25 with me and really enjoyed the opportunity to put them both through their paces. I haven't processed everything, but here's a taste of the weekend. I hope you enjoy.
