Hey let's go to San Francisco...Ok, why not?
It was a typical Saturday morning doing routine errands. We had finished up what we needed to do and had a quick lunch at In and Out Burger. It was just a bit after 1 in the afternoon. Kelly and I realized that there was really no reason to go home. Her kids were all gone for the day and wouldn't be back until late Sunday. Of course there was always laundry and house work that could be done. But where's the fun in that?
So we decided what the heck, let's get out of town. The only decision that needed to be made was do we go east into the mountains or west to the coast? I guess the call of the Pacific Ocean was stronger this day so we headed to our favorite city by the bay, San Francisco.
On trips like this without any real plans we sometimes like to just drive around our destination and explore. That's what we did on this day. We drove around The City exploring some of the neighborhoods. We ended up finding the Coastal Trail at Lands End. The trail winds around and above the Pacific Ocean with some spectacular views of The City and the Golden Gate Bridge. Since this was one of our spur of the moment trips we weren't exactly ready to do a lot of hiking but you can bet we will be back.
From there we drove around some more and ended up at Alamo Square Park. Right across the street are some very famous ladies. You may have seen them on TV or in a Movie. In fact the whole time we were there they posed for dozens of people strolling by. Several tour buses also stopped as they drove by the park. I'm guessing these are probably the most photographed ladies in The City. Of course I am talking about the famous Painted Ladies of San Francisco.
We finished the day at our favorite little hole in the wall Italian restaurant Stelline. The food was great as usual and so was the service. I had the Spaghetti Gamberetti and it was delicious. We have been there several times now and every time has been a pleasure. I'm sure we will be back again.
It seems like every time we go to San Francisco we see something different. The City has several distinct neighborhoods and tons of things to do. People come from all over the world to see the sights in San Francisco. Living here in Stanislaus County we are lucky, we can on the spur of the moment hop in the car and enjoy a world class city.
