I met San Fran for the first time on a beautiful sunny October afternoon. She hosted us for several days in which we walked, bused and cable-car’d ourselves silly. We ate ourselves even sillier. I should mention that I was seven months pregnant at the time, and we traveled with another pregnant couple, which meant double the hunger hormones. This, of course, isn’t a bad thing when you’re in San Francisco. :)
Here are some of my favorite photos from the trip…
Tourist trap: the Painted Ladies. Cue the “Full House” theme song!A view from the Golden Gate Promenade. Aquatic Park My husband was not going to leave the city until he rode in a cable car. I have to admit that I’m so glad we did!
Vibrant Chinatown. I could’ve spent a week here alone – so much to see and eat. On our first full day in the city, we were honored to attend our friends’ wedding at the Trocadero Clubhouse in Sigmund Stern Grove. It was absolutely charming. These doughnuts = happy pregnant ladies. Did I mention that the bride and groom showed up in style? I mean, that dress and that suit! The food spread. And I’m drooling again.
All smiles after a great celebration.
We found this great view at Lands End lookout. The perfect thin crust pizza from Rose’s Cafe.
Enjoying our free samples at Ghiradelli Square.
Smelly sea lions at Pier 39. Goodbye, Golden Gate bridge! We sadly left San Fran after a short stay and continued onto the second leg of the trip. But first, we stopped at the Salsalito Taco Shop for some amazing tacos.
