San Francisco

My trip to San Francisco was amazing. I visited China Town, Japan Town, Fisherman’s Wharf and more. We took an evening tour of Alcatraz and strolled along the pier to watch the sea lions. I love San Francisco. Here are some of the things we saw:

These drummers are amazing. I could have listened to them all day.
Such energy and skill!

La Boulange French Toast - I'd drive to San Francisco just for this!

Out building on Alcatraz - I am framing this for my travel wall.

This trip was amazing. My boyfriend and I went with my friend Kathy and her husband to celebrate my and Kathy's birthday. We were born on the same day in the same hospital and finally reconnected when we were in 6th grade. We've been friends ever since. We currently live on opposite sides of the country but hopefully one day we'll live closer. Right now, we plan to continue taking trips like this.

I took my first ride on a cable car - much more fun that I thought it would be.
Kathy and I were on the back and got to talk to the guy working in the brake.

One more yummy breakfast place!

While on our way to the city we stopped at the Michael Mondavi winery. Yum! I joined the wine club so we are heading over to Sonoma in June for a BBQ there. They make my favorite wine - Spellbound. So far I've tasted 3 of the Spellbound wines and all of them have been fantastic. These wines are something else I would make the drive for. They are that good!

So those are the highlights of my trip. It was fantastic and definitely magical.

Be sure to enter to win the dragon goodies I brought back from Chinatown in celebration of my 100th post. Check out this post for more details.

  1. Awesome photos! My brother is stationed in San Francisco but I've never been able to visit yet. By the way we were followers of each other's blogs before... this is my new blog. :-)
