After a few uneventful days in Lake Tahoe (its the sort of place thats probably really pretty in the winter, but looked a bit dreary in miserable autumn weather), we headed down to San Francisco.
The drive over the Bay and Golden Gate bridges were obviously a highlight. As was the afternoon we spent at Crissy Field beach, with its cool views of the bridge in the background. A visit to Fishermans Wharf which leads to the Pier overlooking Alcatraz was obviously a must, and it was fun watching the famous san francisco trolleys roll up and down the hills 🙂
It was deifintely a fun few days. We really liked the mix of cosmopolitan city and chilled out beach culture there. Oh, we should mention that anyone planning a trip there should definitely take time out to have breakfast at the ‘Pork store cafe’ on Haight Street. It was the most yummy meal we’ve had all trip, and you’d never have guessed it from the look of the place :). Its one of those hole in the wall, well kept secrets thats definitely worth a visit. Im still dreaming of the chorizo/egg/hash brown/chilli meat/cheese combo and mega omelette we ordered…mmmmmmmmmmmm 🙂
