Okay! Back again with San Francisco. If you have not read part 1, here is the link, San Francisco Part 1. I am still daydreaming about the weekend we had honestly. On Saturday of our weekend trip, we started the day off by going to my favorite place in San Francisco, the tile steps! I think I love it here so much because of the artistry behind the steps, and the beauty that they hold. Anyone who knows me knows that I am a sucker for art. I am in love with the colors, and the view from the top is like nothing else I have you to see in San Francisco. Also, how cool is it that it is just smack dab in the middle of a neighborhood! Could you imagine living a short walk from such a unique and breathtaking attraction? For being a well-known place, I was surprised that it was not crowded at all, and we had the stairs to ourselves for a while. If, and when I go back, I want to just take a good book up to the top of the stairs and hang with a sandwich. Soaking in the surrounding and basking in the sun on these steps would be a dream come true right now with the weather I have had the last two weeks.
After that we took a stroll down to a local, phenomenal breakfast place called Zazies! It was the best breakfast I have had since Australia and the best eggs benedict I have ever had. It is a cute but small place and super busy, so you have to be willing to wait (I promise it is worth it). Our table also shared a Carmel French Toast which was soooo sweet I could only have a couple bites but… Wow.
This was our big walking day, after breakfast we had to walk off all that food, so we went to Haight Street. This is my best friend Kayleigh’s favorite place. It is so hippie and fun I felt like I was stepping into another era. There is a lot of shopping, from vintage shops, to modern boutiques, and a lot of intriguing people. Although there are some wackos running around, I never felt unsafe and honestly found their presence kind of entertaining.
Our final stop before dinner was Ashbury. This is known for the Full House show with all the famous houses and park. This was a fulfillment of one of my childhood dream, like most my 20 something readers we grew up on this show, and my obsession surely has not faded with age. The park itself is beautiful as well to just stroll through on an overcast afternoon.
After all the pictures and walking we grabbed a coffee from The Mill, for my coffee drinkers, I am not a huge coffee girl unless it is loaded up with sugar but my friend Brena got a normal coffee but on nitro. I had a taste of it and it was soooo smooth it was something new to try and I liked it surprisingly. From there we went to another personal favorite… Sausalito.
Sausalito feels somewhat separate from the city, and honestly driving through it made me think I was driving through the hilly coasts of Southern Italy. We got dinner at The Trident, where we sat right on the water at sunset. I am hopelessly in love with Sausalito. The dinner was fantastic, I got a steak and I was having extreme nostalgia from Australia. There were just beautiful hints of those feelings as if I were back in Australia. This place is to die for. It was the perfect close to the night!
On to… Sunday! My final day in San Francisco!
