San Francisco Fun

This is the first picture I took on our visit to San Francisco.  We picked up our son, Eric, and then went to lunch in Marin County.  It was great to see him!  The weather was never an issue because it was beautiful the whole time, not a raindrop was felt.  We were busy the whole time checking out Eric's place of work, sightseeing, and wine tasting!  So much to do and so little time to do it all.  I loved that San Francisco has some of the best places to eat!!  We had Vietnamese, Chinese, Mexican, Italian, Cajun and burgers!!  Of course, we had sourdough sandwiches which were terrific.   I can see why Eric misses lobsters - didn't find much seafood other than Bubba Gump Shrimp! Haha!
Fisherman's Wharf
We stayed right in the city so we were able to do some walking but mostly took the car because we wanted to be able to go to Marin County, Sonoma, the Muir Woods and Sausalito.  We were able to walk to Fisherman's Wharf and Ghiradelli Square.  We were in San Francisco in the Summer of 2011 but we stayed in San Jose which was fun but staying right in the city was a treat to be so close to where Eric lives and being near everything.  Check out beautiful pictures of the Golden Gate Bridge with and without fog, Alcatraz, Sausalito, Tiburon, and Lombard Street.  We were not able to get to the Muir Woods this time because the Park was so packed!  We tried twice but didn't want to do the road again.  It was like a scary ride in an amusement park, very winding and the drop off was unbelievable!!  I took a lot of pictures so I just picked a few pictures to highlight the fun we had.  The best was seeing our son! Hoping some day he misses Maine and will at least come back to the East Coast but I definitely see why he loves it on the West Coast.  Enjoy the pics!
