Final weekend of my friends one month West Coast visit, we took a short flight down to San Francisco. Of course, we nearly missed the flight from Portland. Arrived at the gate just before the door closed. I still can't believe we made it. Checked into the hotel, then immediately left the hotel to walk around before it got too late and everything was closed. The next couple days involved a lot of walking, staring at google maps, and besides a few cranky moments of disagreement there were still a lot of laughs, fun, and long conversations.
Union Square, Trolly, lombard Street, Alcatraz (from a distance), Golden Gate Bridge (from a distance), Ghiradelli Square, Pier 39, Fishermans Wharf, Sea Lions
Union Square, City Bus, Street Car, Chinatown, Coit Tower, Transamerica Pyramid, In-N-Out burger
Union Square, Macys, watched a labor day protest, took the Bart to airport
I saw quite a bit over the last 30 days. Things even I have never seen or experienced, and I've lived here for 38+ years. Due to weather, temperature, air quality (smoke from the fires), and overall exhausting the poor guy and needing to give him an occasional nap break... there was quite a bit I excluded from my original plan. Even I was starting to struggle to keep up with myself. Whether it was Seattle, Oregon, or in San Francisco... what we did cover is still quite impressive. Seeing more than many people see in a lifetime.
