I love San Francisco. Great food, great shopping, and lots of interesting people to watch. My mom and I had a wonderful time doing what we do best…shopping of course! Our first full day there was beautiful and sunny, and just a little bit chilly.
No trip to San Francisco is complete without riding on the cable car. Here is me waiting in line with my tickets.
Here it is! Since we were at the end of the line they have to push the cable car around to face the right direction.
Here is a shot of Lombard Street (famous for being really steep and winding) from the cable car. Yikes, we could never have a street like that in Michigan!
We took the cable car to Ghirardelli square where there are at least 4 Ghirardelli chocolate shops…..we manged to visit one and pick up some treats for the husband (well, I said it was for the husband, but I managed to eat a few pieces too)!
Oh Boudin bakery….their sourdough bread is amazing! (Good thing we did a lot of walking on this trip because we ate a lot too!)
Here is the best shot I could get of the Golden Gate Bridge….it was really foggy when I snapped the picture, but still beautiful. The next day it rained constantly so we mostly stayed close to our hotel and did some more shopping. Man, I forget that it can be pretty cold at times in California!
Thanks mom for a great trip!
