When we planned this trip to head down to San Francisco for Sabrina's bridal shower, I had my heart set on doing one thing (in addition to the shower). We needed to find some time to spend time sightseeing along the wharf.
I've been to SF several times before and wanted to show my mom and grandma the Ferry Building because it's just so pretty inside and has some great shops and food.
Sunday morning, I did a nice easy 4.5 mile run near our hotel (mom & grams walked), had breakfast and were on our merry way.
Winding our way down Lombard St (the most crooked street in the world, apparently)
Soon enough, we were parked and ready to explore the wharf. It's kind of like Disneyland - bright colors and lots of cute little touristy shops and restaurants to tempt you with scents wafting out from every doorway.
Sea salt anyone? I was tempted...
Then we took the mile hike past several of the piers headed straight for the Ferry Building.
Spotted some gerbera daisies along the way
Once we made it to the Ferry Building, we spent an hour or so browsing every little shop, nook and cranny. So many cute and delicious things to tempt you!
I dropped $20 on three types of cheese at Cowgirl Creamery - so worth it. I'm still munching/hoarding my little cheese slices.
Until next time, Ferry Building...
We spent about two hours along the piers Sunday morning, but it was just enough. After our trek back to the car, we high tailed it to the airport for our flight back to Oregon.
I'm so glad we lucked out with a weekend full of sun in the bay area!
P.S. For those not from the bay area, I was informed by a friend that locals do NOT call it "San Fran," but rather "SF, the city or just San Francisco." Now you (and I) know. :)
