A quick trip to San Fran

Brent and I had some time after dropping his parents and brother off in Oakland, Our flight was late that evening, so we decided to take a quick trip over the bay to San Francisco! I was very excited, I've only been there one other time, and just for an afternoon, so we didnt see much. It was cool and windy on the bay, so we bundled up and headed down to the Wharf for some chowder and sights. 

(Above) Crossing the Bay Bridge. There is a $4 toll, which was packed on the other freeway (our freeway from Oakland was wide open!) we dont have toll's here, so that was actually kinda neat.

The Bay Bridge is such a neat bridge! Brent almost took a job with Kewit Construction, and the Bay Bridge project was a possiblity, i'm glad he didnt take it ;o)

I loved the view of the city while we were driving across the bridge

The Clocktower signaling the start of Fisherman's Wharf

We didnt get a chance to figure out what this giant bow and arrow symbolizes, but it was really neat!

I just loved all the old trains!

What we came down for, Sourdough bread bowls! My fav!

Brent enjoying his breadbowl

I really wanted to buy one of these amazing sourdough animals! they were walking the alligator around the building

The official Wharf sign

I rode the trolly cars the first time I was here, and loved them! We didnt have time to ride one this time, but they were still neat to look at!

A Tall Ship was docked in the harbor. That's Alcatraz in the background to the right

We've been to Ghirardelli in Miami, Las Vegas, and Chicago, now San Fran!

Trying to get a shot of the sign in the background


It was really windy, were trying our best to get a pic in front of the bay

We couldnt zoom in enough, but there are seals on the docks in front of the catamaran

Saying goodbye to the arch from the bay bridge

Heading back to the airport and heading home. What a wonderful end to a great weekend!
