How was YOUR long weekend?
I have been desperately wanting to blog. However my husband and I went for a trek up to San Francisco and he wouldn’t let me take my beloved laptop. I complained, winged, told him it will help us with directions. He said I need some time away from the computer. Probably right, I know it.
Thursday morning our flight was delayed, and I missed my beloved laptop as young people around me were playing games one theirs. I was thinking how I could be blogging! Maybe I’ll see if I can take it to Oz next month instead. Although I don’t know if I want to carry it around.
San Fran was amazing. Adrenalin seemed to kick in. We got to our hotel, the Parc 55 which was a nice stay. At the counter the guy serving us said “queen room with 3 massive windows and beautiful views? Or King bed with 2 massive windows and views?”. My husband and I looked at each other – KING BED all the way! We have a queen bed at home, and always look forward to a King Bed while on vacation.
Once settled in at our hotel, our friend Jack (who is a student in San Fran) met up with us and we walked through Chinatown. It was freezing, but we were well rugged up. We went to a dim sum restaurant recommended by Rachel Ray. It was very good. As we walked through Chinatown we picked up cheap little nick nacks and enjoyed the area. We walked all the way down to Fishermans Warf and took in the sites along the way including Lombard Street. I’ll post some pics when I get them off my camera.
We visited an old gaming museum as well as Ghirardelli Square, buying and eating lots of chocolate!
That night we weren’t really hungry, so had a bite at the bar at the top of our hotel.
The next day we went bikeriding from Fisherman’s Warf to the Golden Gate bridge. I was feeling a bit off that day. So we didn’t walk the bridge, just rode over to see it. After lunch we picked up our car, which turned out to be a luxury car! How nice! For our journey up to Redding aka Middle of Nowhere.
We visited with my husbands grandparents for the next couple of days, and on the way back drove through Napa. Napa is so beautiful, we definitely want to go there again and spend some time walking around, visiting more wineries and maybe bikeriding. We drove through to the 101 and over the Golden Gate bridge. So… now I’m tired. But glad to be back at work.
