Bonnie’s Beach 🏖

My Life. My Experiences. My Love. My Words.

Keep walking, keep walking…

After a decent night of sleep, I took my time getting up and ready to hit the streets of San Francisco. Stopped at the Starbucks on my way out and headed t 1.5 miles to Chinatown. I somehow made my way up Knob Hill. It’s one heck of a hill! My legs will be feeling that one tomorrow! I then walked around some more and stumbled upon Coit Tower. That was pretty cool. Went up to the top and took some pics of the incredible views.
After Coit Tower I walked my way over to the pier 39 area. Took a bay cruise and went under the Golden Gate Bridge and around Alcatraz. I walked in over to Fisherman’s Wharf and had a late lunch at Francisco’s Crab Restaurant. It was pretty good! Crab cakes and yellowtail carpaccio and crab enchiladas and chocolate truffle mousse cake; all made up my splurge meal of the trip. 🙂 I ended up walking through the Fisherman’s Wharf area for a bit and started making my way back to the hotel when I decided to see just how far away I was. I had a good 40 minute walk back to the hotel according to Google Maps, and I said screw it and dialed Uber! Traffic was a nightmare, but at least I wasn’t walking back to my hotel in the dark.

So now I lay me down to sleep, and I leave you with some pictures of my adventure today. Enjoy!

Goodnight and sweet dreams!

If You’re Going To San Francisco…

Well, I made it to San Fran for the weekend! All warm and relaxing on a horrible looking mattress. Guess we shall see how it sleeps. Looks like there has been way too much action on this thing as it is concave. Not a pleasant thought.

Anyway, let’s get off that subject!!! So I have no idea what I am going to do here. Kind of like the Boston trip, but I have actually been here before. Been a few years, but I know a couple of places I would like to see again. Definitely going to hit up Chinatown and Japantown. Probably going to head to Fisherman’s Wharf for some good food. Maybe I’ll take a bay tour. I do know I really want to sit on a beach somewhere. I don’t care if it’s cold. When you grow up on a beach and then don’t see one for a few years, you really miss it. Anyone who has ever had the opportunity to grow up loving the ocean will know exactly what I am talking about!

So I have to talk about this hotel! It’s weighing on my mind a bit! Just getting here from the airport is frustrating. The streets of this city are crazy stupid! Turn here, no turn here, taxi/bus only lanes, only left turns for transit. I finally made it to the hotel! You know what’s really sad though? I just totally passed out in the middle of writing this! I am tired!!!!

Eff it! I’m out! I’ll write more tomorrow. :). Good night and sweet dreams!
