We began our day with breakfast at Dottie’s True Blue Cafe. It was excellent, and we highly recommend it to anyone visiting San Francisco. It wasn’t the cheapest breakfast, and we had to wait in line for a while even though we got there around 8:15, but it was sooo good. In fact, Joel went back twice with co-workers later in the week!
After breakfast, we headed across the Golden Gate Bridge to the Muir Woods National Monument.
This was a repeat of our honeymoon. It is amazing to see all the enormous redwoods.
Nothing like a good school picture pose on a huge fallen tree.
Then we headed to the Muir Beach Overlook.
We attempted to relive a wonderful honeymoon burrito experience at Grilly’s in Sausalito, but sadly, it was closed for renovations. In loving memory of the burrito is this picture from 2005.
Next, we headed back into the city to Crissy Field for a nice view of the Golden Gate Bridge.
We took a quick trip down Lombard Street…
…and finished the day with a giant loaf of sourdough bread from Tartine Bakery. It’s in the Mission district, which is packed with hipsters sporting ironic mustaches and super tight jeans. Totally worth it. And yes, I put it in my suitcase to bring home.
