Travel Photo Friday: San Francisco

June 4, 2009

A few pics from our recent California trip. We spent one day in the city with friends. A fabulous, packed day. Took the ferry from Alameda and had a chance to explore the beautifully restored Ferry Building. Truly a foodie's heaven and a great place to try out local goodies. Then headed down to Pier 39 on Fisherman's wharf where we rode the carousel, visited the sea lions, and tried to stay warm. Continued walking until we came to the Boudin Bakery where we were lured into their museum/bakery tour by their amazing sour dough creatures. Had a nice lunch in the Boudin restaurant. Camille fell asleep towards the end of lunch so we located a bookstore a couple of blocks away and headed there for an afternoon break. Without a stroller, she's just too heavy to carry for very long these days. After naptime (aka bookstore pit stop), we continued walking to the end of the Fisherman's Wharf area and had some fun along the water. Then we rushed back, caught the ferry, and enjoyed the great city views on our trip back to Alameda. It was a good day in San Francisco.

That ferry ride is awesome. So glad you had a blast, and let me know next time you're here -- my apartment's almost as close as you can get to Alameda without swimming!

These are fantastic photos. After reading this post, I felt that I had enjoyed this lovely adventure myself. (I'm even looking a little tanned :-)

Cami said...

I really, really, really just love San Fran. My mom lived in the burbs for most of her life--perhaps that's why? It's just such a great place.

Dominique said...

Sounds like a great day!
I remember being in San Francisco when I was a kid, but I'd love to go back now.

Hey welcome to my part of the world! I love watching the bread making at Boudins. The last time we saw them, we came home and made our own turtle bread. It looked way too much fun to pass up!

Looks like I am not the only one who is a sucker for doughy animals. They also had a pretty amazing alligator.
