Day three in San Francisco.
Today we went to Fisherman’s Warf. Julie got her seafood, chocolate and an amazing Bloody Mary. I got some terrific photos, a print of the original blueprints of the Golden Gate Bridge from 1933 and the best ramen I’ve ever ate.
We also saw the Palace of Fine Arts, Lombard St., China Town, and Twin Peaks.
Yesterday, we spent a pretty lazy day just watching movies and taking care of some errands. We did get some great sushi from the Japanese Fish Market in Emeryville after picking up a rental car. (I’ll explain)
Thursday was a crazy, hectic day. We got in to Oakland around 8:30 am CA time. Grabbed a cab to the Bart, then headed to J Wills apartment by the Marina.
It was early so we fixed us some breakfast before we decided to head out to see some sights.
After figuring out how to get J Wills Lexus to start (keyless this and that) we were under way!
First was Muir Woods. That was the most impressive site I’ve seen in a long time. Trees that have been alive since before this was even a country. We walked, snapped photos, read the plaques and enjoyed the peace and quiet.
Afterwards we went to see the Golden Gate Bridge. It was FREEZING! Mark Twain once said, “the coldest winter I ever spent was one summer in San Francisco.” I can totally relate!
We decided to drive across the bridge and check things out from the city side. As we came through the toll plaza, the car was shoved about twenty feet to the left. Another car was merging and smashed right into the side of us.
In San Francisco for less than 24 hours and already we were the victims of awesome San Fran driving!
The damage to J Wills Lexus could have been worse. It was drivable, but we figured we needed to call it a day until we could get ahold of J and let her know what was going on.
After an exchange of information, a few calls, a police report, and a smoke on the side of the road to calm my nerves, we headed back to the apartment.
We figured it was time to call it a day!
Yesterday, we found the shop that J wants to use to fix her car, picked up a rental and just lazed around.
Tomorrow we plan to go to Napa.
Julie told me today, “the best vacation is one where you leave exhausted but refreshed.” I can honestly say that’s how I’ll be leaving!!
