Two weekends ago, J and I decided to do what we should do more often: head out to San Francisco for the day. Even though we live relatively close to the City (only 1,5 hours + BART ride), we don’t go as often as we’d like to. This time we just got up on Saturday morning and went!
We have this little routine when we go to the Bay Area that we park our car in Rockridge (East Bay) and have brunch at Rockridge Café before taking BART into the city. Their apricot scones are to die for!
Then we took BART to the Embarcadero and from there walked along the piers all the way to Fisherman’s Wharf. We got so lucky, it was a beautiful and sunny day with a little bit of a cool breeze. Just perfect! See for yourself!
We treated ourselves to some super-expensive ice-cream at Pier 39 (you gotta live a little!)…
… and then made our way over to the San Francisco Maritime National Historic Park, found a spot on the grass and just relaxed for an hour with a beautiful view of the historic Balclutha sail ship and the Golden Gate Bridge.
We walked all the way out to Fort Mason Municipal Pier to catch a closer look at the Golden Gate and a beautiful view of the city’s skyline.
I honestly don’t get tired of this, do you?
Later in the afternoon, we had coffee in North Beach at Washington Square, found a cute Italian restaurant for dinner and then headed back to Sacramento around 9 p.m. with the promise to do this soon again!
