We toured three vineyards on our trip! The grapes were sooo tiny due to the fact that it was early in the growing season! We didn't care much for the wines...we mainly loved the views!
We even rode on the famous trollies/cable cars. Chad was brave enough to stand on the outside as the trolley took us to Fisherman's Wharf from our hotel. He had to be careful though because at on point on the path we passed another trolley and he had to pull in close so he wouldn't get hit!
We discovered the best creme puff in the city, possibly the best ever! It was sooo yummy. They were the size of baseballs! And the creme on the inside was sooo good! We loved them so much that we ate like six of them during our week long stay. We tried to justify it by the fact that we were walking so much that we were burning a gazillion calories. However, we were only kidding ourselves..when we got home, the scale gave us a harsh reminder of our miscalculation! Those creme puffs are dangerous!...But sooooooo yummy!
After searching the city for 3 hours for a jacket with any kind of substance or even a scarf for that matter, we found a boatload of warm scarfs down at Fisherman's Wharf. Lynn was a little annoyed at the wasted time....but could only laugh at their adventure through just about every shopping venue in the city! Who knew a cute little stylish trench coat would not be enough to combat the strong winds from the ocean and the 50 degree weather at night! Duh!!
On our last night, we took a dinner cruise on the bay circling Alcatraz and the Golden Gate Bridge. The views were breathtaking. Too bad Chad had to take all the photos because Lynn was kindly reminded by her stomach that she doesn't fair well on small boats in the ocean.
