Guilty Pleasure


The famous Golden Gate Bridge


Muir Woods
Sequoia sempervirens (commonly referred to as the Coast Redwood)


Katie at Fisherman's Wharf


I have returned from San Francisco! Reluctantly!

I attended the Centennial Celebration and conference of the American Society of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (ASBMB).

It was delightful! The talks were really great as well as the poster presentations. I adored all the sights and sounds of this west coast city.

It was wonderful to be immersed in this scientific community. It was also great to be away from the bench for a while. Although I do feel a bit guilty for being away.

The San Francisco Symphony was really a true treasure to behold and hear.

I am very grateful to ASBMB for thinking that my research was worthy enough of the wonderful award and opportunity to travel!

Yes, this has been my guilty pleasure!

I went to San Fran for the first time in October and was ready to move there...the city had such an amazing vibe to it - I absolutely fell in love. I'm glad you, too, had a great time.

I went there about a year and a half ago, also for a conference. It's great isn't. Your pictures brought back nice memories!
