California, food, Isabel, San Francisco

the San Francisco treat

We arrived in San Francisco right before Valentine’s Day (and right before my birthday!). I love the feeling of San Francisco. It’s a big enough city that it has very good public transit yet driving is not out of the question. But then, you don’t exactly need to drive when each neighborhood (and neighborhoods within in each neighborhood) has walkable resources (grocery, restaurants, bars, shopping, etc.). It was so delightful! So many interesting places in such a small area. Big city with a very laid back feel, my kind of place.

San Francisco was the first place I had my first ever In-N-Out burger experience.

Which I shared with my friend and In-N-Out aficionado, Ray.

Isabel and I stayed with my friend Lucy, who is fortunate to live a mere two blocks from Golden Gate Park! There are all manner of good times to be had there, and we certainly did not even scratch the surface. More like just buffed a corner of it.

Isabel rode the train with me down to the Embarcadero. I neglected to get a picture of her as a passenger, as I was so anxious with her on board and focused on making sure she didn’t bother anyone. She didn’t even care about other people, just watched out the window and got antsy whenever we went through tunnels underground because she couldn’t see anything. Instead, we posed near the Bay Bridge:

Notice that Isabel cares more about staring at the seagull down the way than posing for a picture.

    San Fran looks awesome! I can’t wait for our trip there this August. The In & Out Burger is a definite must.

      Yay! You will love San Francisco! Take note, there’s only one In-N-Out in the whole city — in Fisherman’s Wharf. Also, if you like chocolate, the Ghirardelli store is in that area as well.
