San Francisco

Allen and I had a great time in San Francisco. We got there on Sunday afternoon (March 19) and it was a beautiful day. This picture is one of us on the Marin County side of the bay and behind us is the Golden Gate Bridge and San Francisco. On Sunday, we left Everett with my sister and her 3 kids and we drove from San Jose North to San Francisco. We first drove through the Golden Gate Park and over the bridge and then went to Muir Woods, which is a Redwood Forest. We then drove up to the point in this picture, looking out over the bay. It was beautiful!

We left there, driving through the Presidio, to our hotel, The King George. It's a great little hotel in the Union Square area. We checked in and then headed to dinner at a Mexican Tapas restaurant. It was a fun day! The next day (Our Anniversary-March 20), we walked around in the rain to Fisherman's Wharf, Coit Tower, and Ghirradeli Square. We also visited the Cable Car Museum and China Town. It cleared up during the afternoon and we drove back to San Jose along the coast. We even went down to a beach in Half Moon Bay and dipped our hands into the Pacific Ocean. It was freezing!

We've had such a great time here and we're sad to leave. California is such a beautiful place and it's amazing all there is to see and do here. We're really going to miss my sister and her family. The kids are all so cute and are changing and growing up so quickly. We've got to gear up for our long flight home and changing back to our time zone. Here goes!
