Visiting San Francisco

Golden Gate Bridge

A fun three days in San Francisco and the bay area – although the 14-hour drive on either side of those three days was a little much!

Day 1:  Walk to the Golden Gate Bridge, shop and browse along Chestnut Street, eat at Super Duper Burger and stop at Kara’s Cupcakes for dessert.

Day 2:  Day trip to Monterey Bay Aquarium, eat fish and chips on the waterfront, visit Stanford (my alma mater) on the way back.

Monterey

Day 3:  Breakfast in Haight-Ashbury, then on to Golden Gate Park – the California Academy of Sciences museum, hot dogs while sitting at the bandstand, then a stroll around Stow Lake and a visit with the lake’s extensive population of painted turtles!

A lot of wonderful things to see and do, although I had forgotten how crowded it is EVERYWHERE in the Bay area . . . I confess to being glad to come home to the peace and serenity of our country house :)
