Monet or Titanic?

We were hoping to visit the Monet in Normandy Gallery on the last weekend is was here in San Francisco, but there was a big disappointing sign waiting for us at the front entrance..."SOLD OUT". We missed the gallery back in Seattle and now we missed it again...Bummer. Well, we always wanted to see the Titanic Exhibit at the Sony Metreon...so we decided to drive across the city to check it out.

I'm really glad we decided to visit this exhibit . Not only were there so many artifacts, photos and video clips...they even took the time to replicate several rooms and open areas of the Titanic - Just amazing!

I wish I could have snapped some photos to share, but no photography was allowed. I guess that gave me a chance to mess around with this new pen I purchased in Japan Town.


We ended the day by visiting Beard Papa's. If you haven't checked this place out, you gotta go...right now.....try thier cream-puff! Just be prepared to stand in line for 10-15 minutes. Service is fast, it's just the people in front of you that are buying 2 dozen boxes. Hahahaha.

Gerald- Those sketches look real cool--a kind of graphic-novel look to them. I have heard of Beard Papas! I saw them for the first time in Waikiki (but unfortunately I did not try one...)

Wow, it was probably a great thing your camera was not allowed as these sketches really tell a story. They are wonderful! Love the composition. BTW, thanks for letting me know about the Monet exhibit. I'm going to see about checking it out.
