San Francisco pulled out a fantastic day today – there’s not a cloud in the sky, and the sun’s shining without any sign of hesitation. Of course, it’s still a little chilly but it’s not too different to the temperature at home in Wellington, NZ.
Say what you will about the hills, so far I’ve found San Francisco to be a very walkable city.
This morning I did a loop around from my downtown hostel to Nob Hill, and down to Fisherman’s Wharf via Chinatown. The hills were definitely steep in places, and I even tried jogging the steeper part of Mason St at one point. It didn’t kill me! I just regretted wearing so many merino layers for it.
You live and learn.
The highlight of the day was a 90 minute “bridge to bridge” cruise/tour of the bay. It was a well paced, casual ride and not too busy. I had a prime spot at the back of the boat for picture taking, too, which was great.
Dinner tonight with friends who are also in the city for a couple of nights, and Napa tomorrow (assuming the weather doesn’t pack it in completely)!
Forgive me Jeans, for I have sinned. I have a confession to make.
Yesterday I made the most of a very tasty, pretty, [insert adjective here] all-you-can-eat chocolate buffet.
Sorry, I’ll repeat that for you Jeans, in case you didn’t quite catch that. All-you-can-eat chocolate buffet. Oh, you did catch that? What was that, Jeans? You’re well aware of my enthusiasm for the platters and platters of sugary goodness?
I am sorry, I swear.
Okay, maybe not that sorry – you only live once, right?
I’d totally do it again.
