I am a lucky gal. For many many reasons, but one of which is that I have some great friends who are almost as crazy as me and willing to take off to San Francisco. Julia and Megan and I all went to San Francisco just for a break and for some much needed friend time.
The weather was a big bust, with serious rain storms two of the days. We managed to have fun and it was definitely an adventure.
We had to sprint up a hill to catch the trolley ride, but we made it and of course rode on the outside as we toured Chinatown, Nob Hill, and Russian hill.
We took the Ferry to Alcatraz and we got dumped on, but it was really cool. Last time I went to Alcatraz I was about 10, and I didn't remember too much.
We took a walk along the wharf and saw a cool ship, along with the aquatic park. I loved watching the swimmers in the ocean. I wanted to join them.
Walking along in Marina Park.
We had lunch at the Nordstrom cafe, looking out over downtown.
At Alcatraz they had an art expo with a bunch of guys' faces in legos. It was cool at first, but there were too many faces and Middle Eastern names that I lost track.
I had so much talking and walking and relaxing with these girls. It was a much needed break.
