Just stopping in after an extended break. An amazing, relaxing, and memorable break.
To start our vaction off, my husband graduated with his second Master's degree (this time an MBA), so I just had to share this family photo because we are SO proud of him!
Then, about 15 hours later, we hopped on a plane and headed to the West Coast! We flew into San Francisco, and the very first thing I wanted to do was go to In-and-Out Burger. I've heard so many good things about this place, and my growling tummy needed to know if it lived up to the hype.
It did. $2.35 for a cheeseburger (by far the cheapest meal we had on this trip - oy) and it was supberb. Understated, simple, delicious. I will never go to Sonic again.
From there, the other extremely important thing to do whilst in San Francisco was to take a picture of what I affectionately referred to as "THAT DAMN BRIDGE" because, as I found out, it took quite the effort to find the perfect spot to take a picture. But we found it! If you're going to San Francisco, bear sure to wear some flowers in your hair and also go to Presidio Park.
Could this sky BE any bluer? (Make sure you read that with a Chandler Bing inflection)
There's Alcatraz! We didn't go there because they said Sean Connery was busy so I felt like it wasn't worth it.
With just a few hours before I would turn into a pumpkin (aka I was on east coast time and gotten up up 3:30am, so I was exhausted) we decided to be tourists and go down to Pier 39.
We had dinner at Neptune's because they didn't have a wait, had great views, and the menu looked delish. Unfortunately, it was probably my least favorite meal of our entire trip, and the service was piss poor. However, this was our only bad dining experience throughout the week, so NBD.
The sun was just setting as we made our way back to the car, so I snapped one last shot (of the over 800 I took on this trip). This town is pretty damn beautiful. And that ended Day 1, but don't worry,
the wine, I mean, the rest of our trip will be recapped in the next few days :-)
