Movin On

Hello All,
This morning 6/23, we woke up and packed up our things.  We enjoyed our five day visit with our family in Santa Maria, but it was time to move onto the next adventure.  Aunt Debbie made us some amazing pancakes and then we said our goodbyes.  We hit the road to our next destination- San Francisco!

We decided to take the long, but more scenic way up to San Francisco.  We took highway 1 which lead us along Big Sur.  If you do not know, this highway it hugging the coast 90% of the time.  This was just what we wanted.  There were several small mountain climbs and declines, but nothing compared to what we have done already.  Winding roads made Brad's driving experience more enjoyable.  We enjoyed the beautiful view so much!  We even saw some sea lions!  It was definitely worth the extra drive time.

We made it to San Francisco right at rush hour :(  It did not take us to long to get to the hotel, but it was definitely stressful.  Lots of traffic and in an unfamiliar city is not fun.  We made it to the hotel around 6:00.  We dumped our stuff in the hotel room and then started walking to the warf.

We walked around for quite a bit, taking in the sites.  We then decided to have dinner at the Pier Market.  The weather was beautiful, so we sat outside.  I had salmon and Brad had swordfish.  For those of you that know me really well, you know how I feel about fish, but it was great!  I really did enjoy it!

We sat at dinner and enjoyed the evening bay breeze and then walked towards Ghirardelli Square.  We bought some ice cream and ate it on the the pier over looking the bay and the Golden Gate Bridge.  It was a beautiful site while eating delicious treats.

We walked back to the hotel and got ready for a good night's sleep.  We have a big day tomorrow and we are excited for our next adventure!
