the trip was a quick one but we got to see tons of SF (most of it by walking it!).
we flew Virgin Air which was pretty fancy. they were pretty personable (which is rare in flying these days) and had fancy ipod like seats and satellite tv viewing.
on friday we met up with a college friend and perused the city.
this was taken from the tippy top of nob hill... then we walked down. urgh.
on our walk down the hill we made our way through the colorful china town.
we eventually made it to the ferry building where we had a wonderful lunch on the water. after living here in seattle, i can't imagine living without water. it is just so peaceful even when hustling, bustling with ferry traffic.
while making our way through the city we even managed to find a Steeler's Bar... oh yeah baby.
here we go, steelers, here we go!
friday afternoon we walked up through north beach and down to fisherman's wharf... then it was back to the hotel cause after 7.5 miles of walking i needed a nap. that evening we had a delicious meal and i even indulged in a few sips of red wine with dinner. ( i know, i know save the speech for someone else... after 6 months of being pregnant and not having any alcohol i doubt a few sips of red wine is going to hurt.)
saturday morning we drove across that famous bridge... what's its name again? oh yeah the Golden Gate Bridge... ( seriously i hope you know i am just joking) i got a bit obsessive with the photography.
we had breakfast in Sausalito then walked along the water enjoying the sunny morning.
by the afternoon we had made our way down to the mission for some amazing tacos and a stroll around the neighborhood to check out some of the beautiful murals.
and this is apparently what i need to prepare myself for in the next few months!
we even checked out some lucha libre masks...but i couldn't talk the boys into street wrestling
on sunday morning we ended our trip with a cable car ride... cause how can you visit San Fran without seeing the city via cable car?
i hope you enjoyed your surprise b-day weekend JD. you deserved it and i'm glad i got to tag along and share it with you.
