Despite the lack of competition, it was a thrilling and beautiful day to be out watching the first day of the America's Cup sailing, with Emirates Team New Zealand reaching almost 50 mph on the water. The Luna Rossa Challenge team sat out Sunday's opener due to a rule dispute, so Emirates Team New Zealand sailed alone, picking up the first point.
Plenty of people joined the festivities, led by Maori dancers, jazz bands and all sorts of activities at the America's Cup Park. Enjoy the slideshow and look out for more America's Cup coverage while the action lasts.
For this week's Scenes of the City we tour a historical gem in San Francisco's Portola District. Overgrown and falling apart, the 'hood's old rose nursery is one of those places that reaps its magic from its state of decay. Full of brambles, broken glass, and old nursery tools, the greenhouse takes up an entire city block. See it on Google maps here.
This week, we take you to a little-known forested pocket of the city. The idyllic Macondray Lane is a wooded pedestrian path on the south-eastern side of Russian Hill in San Francisco.
