After getting to SF yesterday morning, and taking a nice long nap, I got restless. Cameron was completely sleep deprived, so I went out on my own to explore.
I forgot a jacket, so I went to good old Victoria’s Secret to get me some Pink. I figured if I was going to buy a jacket, I might as well invest in something I know I’ll wear all of the time!
Thank GOD I got it, too, because it was hella windy today going over the Golden Gate Bridge! I’ll get to that later.
Back to last night. The last thing I did was get dinner at the Houlihans downstairs in our hotel. I had this amazingly yummy salad:
Good thing I only ate a little over half. NOT a healthy, low cal salad!!!!
Then, to bed I went. The bed in our room is SO comfy!! Our bed at home just sucks, so I guess anything other than our bed would be heavenly. It really is nice, though.
Today, we decided to tackle San Francisco. It was my birthday, so I had to at least do my hair and makeup for the occasion!
You know you’re still a girly girl, (even though you’d rather sleep an extra hour before work than take the time to do god makeup) when you pack all of this makeup for only 5 days!
We took the hotel shuttle to the airport (very close, and free!), then the BART to the cable car station at Powell St. The cable car was SO fun! They really are exactly like I always imagined!
We took him (yes, the cable car is a boy) down to Fisherman’s Wharf.
CRAZY windblown hair! I told you it was windy on the bridge!
Then, we proceeded to get our tickets for the 48 hour “Hop-On, Hop-Off” bus tour. Cameron got us a pass to all of the tours, which pass by each stop every half-hour. This allows you to hop on and hop off whenever you want at each stop, so you can stay as long as you want in certain areas of the city. It also allows you to use the buses as your main form of transportation throughout the city. Today, we took the Golden Gate Bridge to Sausalito and back tour.
Don’t you just wanna run across that beautiful thing!! I am still trying to convince Cameron to rent a bike and ride over it with me. There were a TON of people doing it! You just ride across it, and take the ferry back to SF. I’ll keep you posted on my progress in that dept….
My phone ran out of juice on our way over the bridge, so Cameron has out pics from Sausalito on his phone. I’ll show some of those in a later post. We did learn, though, that Otis Redding wrote his famous song “Sitting On the Dock Of the Bay” while sitting on a bench overlooking SF from Sausalito. Then I had the song in my head for the rest of the night. Thanks tour guy….
After we got back from the tour, we went to Union Square, had dinner at a halfway decent restaurant (not good enough to really take the time to review, but not bad enough to complain about), and made it back to the hotel pretty quickly.
Tomorrow is the Health and Fitness Boutique (a.k.a. the expo)!!! I LOVE expos! I am SO excited! So we have an early wake up call to get there by 10am so we can get up to the city at a reasonable time. Nighty night from San Francisco!!
