San Francisco: Twin Peaks, Tank Park, Castro, and Alamo Square

On a clear bright sunny day we head up to San Francisco for some views. We first head up to Twin Peaks and the to a lesser known park just down the hill from Twin Peaks called Tank Hill. From there we drove down to the Castro where we had lunch at Luna Cafe sitting outside in the back patio. We then walked around Castro which was 'painted up' to look like the Castro of the 70's for the filiming of "Milk", the story of Harvey Milk. After the Castro we drove over to Alamo Square to see the Painted Ladies, a row of famous Victorian homes.
