Anniversary Trip Part 1

The first  part of our trip was spent in San Fransisco. While it was a little chilly, the blue skies were in abundance. Thanks to my cousin Debbie, we had a game plan of how to make the most of our one night there. James had never been before, and I had not since I was a teenager. We spend most of the afternoon walking/hiking around the city. First stop: Ferry building on Embarcadero for lunch at Gott's Roadside

Delicious "tray gourmet" as their slogan says...shrimp tacos, southwest burger with guacamole and pico de gallo, and garlic and herb fries. Basically, we carb loaded for our sightseeing tour.
Along Embarcadero towards Fisherman's Warf
One form of transport: Go cart going down Lombard St (kinda cracked me up, but also slightly jealous after alot of walking)
Walking up the towards Coit Tower, the church in the back ground is Sts. Peter and Paul Church where Joe DiMaggio and Marilyn Monroe took pictures after their civil ceremony in 1954 (they couldnt be married there bc he had been divorced)

Bay View

World's Best Chocolate, no we didn't get any bc we were still too full from Gott's
(the white things hanging down are from my shirt)

At Coit Tower

After our walking tour, we were on the way back to the hotel to freshen up before dinner, when we I spotted H&M. YEA!! After convincing James that this was a necessary stop, we I shopped for my alotted 25 minutes. It is pretty hard to cover much ground in that store in that amount of time, but I did pretty good. James was also happy once he found out the prices. We then headed to dinner at the Cliff House with friends Byron and Hillary. Byron was in dental school with us, and is doing his Ortho residency in SF.

We had a great night visiting with them! The next morning we headed to Napa. More on that soon!
