A dream about the 4th of July, fireworks, monoliths, peculiar and familiar faces.
July 4th, 2018
A wedding dress floating at a window, forever waiting for the bride to be.
A floating boat, its golden coat glowing in the dark.
And then, there were fireworks.
PS: Fireworks are a recurrent event in Savannah, taking place the first Friday of every month at 9:15pm, at the Waterfront.

We watched Bullitt in preparation of the trip, just a few days before departure, so I was very excited to have spotted one of the filming locations very close to Alamo Square where we were staying. A brief 35 minute walk via Divisadero St. and its rather wonderful mansions, or 1.6 miles according to my web map. What could be easier? Well, walking 35 minutes uptown hilly Manhattan, that’s what. For I still had to get to grips with the steepest streets I had ever encountered in a city, the very same that sent the cars flying in ”one of the most exciting car chases in film history” (skip to 3:15 and buckle up).
We did make it, with a few extra huffs and puffs, to the gorgeous mansion atop the hill, where police detective Lieutenant Frank Bullitt (Steve McQueen) meets District Attorney Walter Chalmers (Robert Vaughn) at a reception at Chalmer’s residence.
A break for some extra cheesy pizza to treat ourselves, because what comes up must come down… and then all the way up again.
Walking towards the mansion in the corner of Divisadero St. & Vallejo St., down to Lombard St. at Cow Hollow for a pizza and then back to Alamo Square Park to watch the 4th of July fireworks.

We were watching the fireworks from the heights of Alamo Square Park. Somewhat obstructed by that perfectly aligned row of ”Painted Ladies” but I could not complain. After all, it was a mildly cool evening, we had just arrived in San Francisco and the ”Ladies” themselves were such a lovely sight. There will be many more photos and memories from that trip later on – meanwhile…
Happy 4th of July America! May You Become Sane Again!
