If you're goin' to San Francisco

Our trip to San Francisco was wonderful. It was the perfect way to celebrate my 30th birthday. I loved the smell by the bay, the sea fog, and the walking adventures that we went on. Here are a few highlights of our trip.

We walked from our hotel, The San Remo, to the Golden Gate Bridge. Then we walked over the Bridge, which was amazing. Our journey continued on the windy road that lead us down into the quaint town of Sausalito. After a quick ferry ride across the Bay, we were back in Fisherman's Warf.

By far the best part of this experience was spending time with my Beloved.

At Pier 39, I loved watching the hilarious sounds and antics of the sea lions. They are both charming and intellectual, and have a lovely home in San Fran.

A trip to San Fran would not be complete without a ride on the cable car. Having both the experience of sitting and standing, this was indeed a fun attraction. But by far the best thing about this mode of transportation, is the rich history that it brings to the city, and how the cars are still symbols of the simplicity of the time.
I cannot wait to return and explore more of this fantastic city. And by more I mean Golden Gate Park, the College area, Castro, and of course, the yarn shops!

I'll totally go back with you. I LOVE San Francisco, and I've yet to go there with my camera. :)

I'm glad you had a wonderful time. Craig is a keeper. :)
