SF - day 2
Day two was a whirlwind! I had a list of things I wanted to do and see and I didn't think we'd get to do it all... but somehow we pulled it off.
First off, we slept in til 8:30 and then just lounged around for another hour. Anyone with kids understands what a luxury that is. Here's what day two looked like:
Tartine :: Oh... Tartine. Totally lives up to all the wonderful things you've heard about it, which is rare. The morning bun may have changed my life. Trevor and I just kept looking across the table at each other after every bite with that look of bewilderment that comes when you are eating something insanely delicious. Go, go, go to Tartine.
Bi-Rite :: And, since Bi-Rite is just around the corner, go ahead and get yourself some ice cream after breakfast. Hey, you're on vacation.
Green Apple Books :: If you like books, go to this place. It's three (maybe four?) floors of wall to wall books. It was a little overwhelming, but in a good way. I could have browsed in there for hours.
Tantrum :: An adorable vintage kids shop that I wanted to move into. It was incredibly pricey (at least for me... I'm pretty frugal) and I was disappointed I couldn't bring home more stuff. Oh well, I'm glad we went anyhow.
Lands End Walk & Sutro Baths :: Probably one of my favorite things we did. You feel a million miles away from the city, but you look over your shoulder and see the Golden Gate. If I lived up there, I would go running there every day. (OK, probably not. I'd go walk it though!) This is a must see in my book, I wish I had known about it sooner!
Alamo Square Park :: We just stopped by real quick to see the famous Full-House Victorian homes. It's a cute park with fun homes surrounding it, but you can drive by and get the same effect.
Firefly :: Trevor made reservations at this quaint little restaurant in Noe Valley. We walked up 24th street to get there. It felt more like small town main street than anywhere in a big city. The restaurant was delicious, too! I had a steak for the first time in years and it didn't disappoint.
All in all, it was awesome. I love exploring new cities!
