As you may know, Jesse and I spent last Sunday – Thursday in San Francisco. We had a blast, did a ton, ate plenty of good food, walked many miles, and had sore feet and legs by the end of it all (those hills are no joke!). Here are some snippets from our trip. There will be more to come because I have too many good photos for one post!
Golden Gate Bridge, just before our very windy trek across (and back)! 1.7 miles each way.
Our awesome room at the in the Lower Nob Hill district. “Having been a famed fixture in San Francisco for more than 70 years, the former Canterbury Hotel and Whitehall Inn has been renovated and updated while maintaining its classic flair.” – Wyndham Canterbury http://www.wyndhamvacationresorts.com
Awesome breakfast at ! It was so good, we ate here the next day too. Note, the raw, grain-free coconut meat porridge in the middle was awesome! Jesse and I got it without the maple syrup and shared it. Good stuff and something I’ve never seen before! The Plant
Cable cars! Yes, we rode on one too. It’s a must!
At the Exploratorium. Lots of fun and all hand’s on! Watch out for kids though…they will push you out of the way and take over.
The Living Roof at the San Francisco Academy of Sciences.
Jesse’s shaved asparagus salad at . We loved this place and stumbled upon it while in the Marina district, walking up Chestnut St. Their menu has lots of great options and the outdoor dining area is spectacular! The Tipsy Pig
Jesse on the Golden Gate Bridge, at the beginning of our trek across.
Alcatraz Island, as seen from the Fisherman’s Wharf. We did not make it to Alcatraz on this trip, but will do so another time. We want to do a nighttime tour!

Strolling through the infamous Haight-Ashbury district, an area known for its hippie subculture. Back in the mid-1960s, this was notably one of the most famous intersections in the world. It was a place where young folks came from all over, seeking peace and love. It’s still very reminiscent of the 1960s, with plenty of colorful images, vintage shops, hip restaurants, incense and tie-dye. I think Jesse and I had 4 or 5 offers to buy weed while walking through this district.
The Ferry Building. It’s definitely worth a visit, with all its great shops/vendors inside!
