Almost 5 years ago, we went to San Francisco and Yosemite National Park on our honeymoon. We loved both of course. This week, Joel has a work conference in San Francisco. I had a free plane ticket, so it looked like a fun, but short, weekend was necessary.
Here’s the rundown on our Saturday.
We started out by heading to Golden Gate Park. It’s an enormous park right in the city (bigger than Central Park!). Here are some of the things we saw there. Conservatory of Flowers; Lawn Bowling (new to us); Pollarded trees at the Music Concourse Area; Pagoda, landscape, and interesting bridge in the Japanese Tea Garden; and us taking a break.
Next we got explored Chinatown and got dim sum (and blueberries) for lunch.
We went up to the base of the Coit Tower. Here’s a side by side with us from our honeymoon (night shot). Joel wore that shirt the day before this picture was taken. Too bad he didn’t have it on in both shots!
In an effort to not make a book here, I will finish my Saturday post later with Alcatraz pictures.
