Greetings from Sunny San Francisco! We’re in the midst of a heat wave here — temps have been in the mid to high 80s, not a stitch of fog in sight, and the jacket I’ve been draggin along with me has only been used once. Got in late on Friday night…only room left was a king sized bed one. They brought up a rollaway bed for John. Tee-hee! The next day we moved into the proper room (2 doubles). The rental car has lain (laid?) idle, since the public transportation here in SanFran is fantastic. Busses, streetcars, and the subway stops right in front of our hotel. Sweet!
We hit PacBell park on Saturday to watch the Giants beat the Marlins (yay!) Barry Bonds didn’t play because his dad passed away. But the park was fantastic! That night we went to Pier 39/Fisherman’s Wharf for dinner. That place is a tourist trap and is like a boardwalk without the sand. Yesterday John met one of his online friends whilst Mom and I took a ferry to Sausilito. Ate at “Scoma” and did some girly-shopping. Last night we took a cable car to Lombard Street (crookedest street, yada yada yada)…CLIMBED the mofo, walked to Ghirardelli Square (mmmmm…chocolate!), ate more seafood (am going to turn into a fish) and bussed back here.
Today is Alcatraz! Our ferry to there leaves at 11:45 am. I’m just killing time before we leave. Tomorrow we drive to Anaheim and Disneyland…I’m very jacked up about that.
This town is as hilly as you’ve heard. My quads are hurting from climbing up and down the steep hills. Must get back to gym/diet when I get back to the Right Coast.
Anyhoo, cats and kittens, I hope all is well with you. Maybe I can blog again later in the week.
Wish you were here!
