Whew! I’ve actually been back from San Francisco for a week. Instead of updating my blog when I was on the internet, I was posting vacation photos on Facebook when I was on the internet and clearing out my Google Reader. And then when it came to writing a new post, I really wanted to publish that review post on The Unlikely Disciple first, and that was not a review I wanted to tackle on a weeknight.
Anyway, San Francisco was awesome! The days were full, we ate very well, and there was a lot of walking. We biked across the Golden Gate bridge and due to this, I got a souvenir sunburn on my wrists and the back of my hands (I was wearing long-sleeves.) We did a ferry tour of Angel Island and Alcatraz – a definite highlight of the trip. We also went to the California Academy of Sciences and the DeYoung Museum, among other sights in Golden Gate Park. We saw a lot of the different neighborhoods (we stayed in the Marina neighborhood, near the Presidio.) The last two days of vacation, we went to Napa Valley and visited some wineries.
Some requisite photos (culled from a vast pool of options):
