Pink, Fuzzy Bear
Hi guys. Well the goal of this day was to see if Lee and I could replicate the adventures had
by Conan O'Brien when he visited San Francisco. Specifically, we wanted to go check out ILM and
see if we could find the things Conan found.
But first it also happened to be Free Comic Book Day! And as you may know, our quest for Owly
brought us to the one and only landmark of San Francisco, the Castro! I bet
Goober would've really liked to check out this place.
We headed on and missed the turn to The Presidio and ended up at the
Palace of Fine Arts. It was a pretty great day
to be there so we didn't mind. Here I am chilling on a bench. (For those
of you who don't remember, this is the scene from The Rock where Sean Connery
meets his daughter.
Two British girls asked us to take their picture. In exchange, Lee asked them to take
this picture! The British girl replied, "You and your teddy?! How cute!"
Hoo hoo. I think she liked me.
Lee decided to try to be artistic and took this picture and
this one and this one too, oh and
this one. I was getting bored. Lee took
this one of the water and then this one of the tree
and that was pretty cool I guess. But finally I convinced Lee to go to ILM.
Here we are at ILM!!! The grounds. The view.
The fountain. But so far no sign of the Yoda
statue. We walked around the entire grounds and the only thing cool we saw was
this view of the
Golden Gate Bridge, and this one. Oh well. We were about to give up when we circled it one
more time and found YODA!!
Hoo hoo... still has an old bladder. Can you find me in
this picture? Here I am close up.
Hi guys!! Hoo hoo... some stranger saw Lee taking pictures of me and
asked if he could take our picture.
Then Lee asked the stranger if there was other cool stuff around. He pointed Lee to the
main lobby. It was locked but we looked and saw THIS, just
like Conan had found. Ooh...
and here's the other statue! But what a scam- they're
both in the same room! In fact,
everything Conan featured was in that room! Boo. There was some other
cool stuff too.
All in all we were pretty pleased with how close we came to emulating Conan's trip. On the
way out, we saw this and I stopped to pose. Oh yeah, and Conan
never got a shot like THIS!
Our day didn't end here. Since we were in the Presidio, we went to get a closer look
at the Golden Gate Bridge. Cool!!
Here I am right next to the water! And yet another
friendly person wanted to take my picture with Lee.
Finally, Lee and I went to go check out Baker Beach. It was pretty awesome. Such
stereotypical pictures! And cool to see a
ship on the ocean, and
the cliffs, pretty cool.
I didn't pose for any pictures here because it was windy and Lee didn't want me to get sandy.
Anyway, it was a pretty full day. From Owly to Yoda, good times were had by all. Hope you
enjoyed my photo story!
