Okay, so I didn’t wear a flower in my hair while I was there (I tried REALLY hard to pack light for once!), but I did have a lovely time on my first visit to San Francisco this past week!
It was a work trip, so I didn’t get to do all the tourist-y things that I wanted to, but I did still have a lot of fun exploring what I could of the city!
I definitely wasn’t leaving without making it out to Smuggler’s Cove, where I tried the Kona Cocktail, an exclusive unpublished Don the Beachcomber recipe, which was very…
Wait, where’d it go?? It was definitely tasty while it lasted 😉
I ate other food.
I was staying in Japantown and took advantage of the extra-deep Japanese-style soaker tub in my room. I’m just too tall to comfortably take a relaxing bath in a standard tub, so this was real nice. And I finally got to take that classic Instagram feet-in-the-tub shot.
I saw beautiful buildings…
And sea lions…
And….other marine wildlife…..
I would definitely love to go back to explore the city more! I didn’t get to do any vintage shopping, and I only really saw major icons like the Golden Gate Bridge and Alcatraz from a distance. I had hoped I’d have time to go to the Walt Disney Family Museum, but it just wasn’t in the cards. I’m really happy that I chose to play hooky from my last session to go check out Fisherman’s Wharf. Totally worth it! (Also I totally can’t see what I’m taking pictures of when the sun is out and my shades are on…hello, phantom finger!)
Thanks for having me, San Francisco! Hopefully I’ll see you again soon! Maybe next time I’ll bring a buddy along to take some proper pics.
