Just hanging around ....looks like this soldier's enjoying some leisure time.

Next time you're enjoying leisure time at The Presidio in San Francisco, take a look at this cardboard art hanging near the registration desk at The Lodge at the Presidio. Located on the main parade ground, near the Disney Family Museum. 

along the Main Quad at The Presidio, SF

Hi Lottie... always loved the Presideo when I lived in SF. Love that cardboard "sculpture" as well... really unique and whimsical.

Hi Lottie Kendall - There are a lot of fine details in that cardboard art! I wonder how many people there are in this world who has a picture of themselves standing next to him or him alone? 

It does look like a great place "hang out," and enjoy new faces while making friends too!

Have a wonderful day.

Good morning Paul S. Henderson, REALTOR®,CRS,  - I think you're overdue for a short get-away to San Francisco. The Presidio has changed a lot since the 1970s.  The Presidio Trust has done/is doing a marvelous job of retaining history while enhancing its use.

Hi Endre Barath, Jr. - what do you enjoy doing at the Presidio when you visit? Hiking? Golfing? Programs at the renovated Officer's Club? You should think about staying at The Lodge at the Presidio or the Inn at the Presidio.

Hi Sharon Lee - Those buildings were soldier barracks back in the day. They now house the Lodge, a restaurant, the Walt Disney Family Museum, other small museums, etc.

Where are you in your travels? Still on the road or back home for a while?

Hi Barbara Todaro - don't you have one day off from the gym each week? Not Sunday, I guess.  I'm having my favorite type of weekend, a nice blend of exercise, computer work, a stage play Friday evening, a bit of gardening, and hosting an open house this afternoon at a luxury condo in San Francisco.  A good blend of work and play.

Hello Gita Bantwal and Sheila Anderson - I'm glad you enjoyed the cardboard art. Some people are very creative (I'm not one of them, unfortunately.)

Hi Nina Hollander - be sure to visit the Presidio again the next time you're in town. You'll find it a remarkably good blend of old and new.

Hi Brian England - that cardboard soldier "at ease" is quite amazing. My weekend is a good blend of work and play, including some gardening at my new gardent plot (a couple of weeks ago I had the opportunity to change from my shady plot to a sunny one! )

I'm off to host an open house this afternoon at a luxury condo in the City. How's your weekend?

Hi Patricia Feager - I hadn't heard about cardboard art until some months ago when there was an exhibit at the Exploratorium which was captivating. Here's a post I wrote about it.

This soldier was much more detailed than those.

Hope you're having your favorite type of weekend!

Currently I am in Tennessee and leave for Iowa Friday. I don't have a home other than my travel trailer so I just travel from place to place.

How are you enjoying your that lifestyle, Sharon Lee? It has appeal, but would certainly take me out of my comfort zone - not a bad thing!

Union Square certainly is in the heart of the city, Endre Barath, Jr. with easy access to fine dining, theaters, etc.

Have you and Diane discovered Jeanne d'Arc restaurant in Cornell Hotel de France? I recommend it.

I am enjoying it so far. I have no plans to go back to apartment living. Maybe later down the road. It is a change no doubt about it.

I love the urban art one comes across when walk in a city, Joan Cox - murals, tile work, decorated staircases, delightful mini free libraries, etc.
