"I can resist anything but temptation" the saying goes.
We really did intend to behave, honest.
But Tisza, Kevin and I just couldn't help ourselves. Tisza and I had just picked Kevin up from San Farncisco's airport and we were meandering toward The Cliff House, where I wanted them to enjoy a great view and great food with some neat ambiance.
Skirting the edge of Golden Gate Park, Tisza cried out, "That's the Blog Bus!!" It took about a quarter of a second for us to realize that this was too good to pass up.
A few turns later, we were parked behind the RV, plastering it with business cards and post it notes.
Kevin stuck a post-it next to Ardell's image with a comment that said, "Call me, I'm easy" and thoughtfully included her (real) phone number. (Not posted since I don't want to cause Ardell to get true harassment about it.)
Oh, the fates must have loved us to present an opportunity so perfect!
Calming our giddy souls down, we resumed our regularly scheduled search for food. Tisza got us out to The Cliff House, which was originally founded in 1850 (that's old for here!) and we enjoyed a nice selection of food - I think all of us had some sort of shellfish or another in our table at the window.
That darned fog was there in SF too, but both Kevin and Tisza seemed to revel in it. "I could live here" Kevin said, "Fog is what you think of with San Francisco" said Tisza, making sure I understood that she'd have been disappointed without it.
Lunch was great, Kev insisted on treating (all the while insistng what a mean guy he is - we were not buying it). And then, Tourist Time. First a ride across the Golden Gate Bridge, then down Lombard Street, and finally up Telegraph Hill to Coit Tower. Great views as the fog was (finally) clearing.
Here are some pics for you to enjoy:

Here we are at the Golden Gate Bridge. "The view would be great, but for the fog" I explained again and again...
Lombard Street caused Kevin to shout over and over "wait, stop, I have to take a photo!"
And here you see Kevin in front of a statue of Christopher Columbus (a most famous Italian who is also remembered well in San Francisco's "North Beach" or Italian District) at Coit Tower.
