San Francisco ~ Day Two

Day two in San Francisco welcomed us with sunny skies and warm breezes...PERFECT for our plans of biking over the Golden Gate bridge to Sausalito! This was one of those days that will always be a sweet memory...later in the week we added it to the list of those "better than our wedding day"...though that's not TOO hard to beat.

Now that's what I call a nice view!
Oh my! It's higher than you think!

Yes, I am wearing athletic gear. Rare, but true.

Yay for the couple from Germany who took our photo!

Looking back across the Bay to SF.

Our first view coming into Sausalito.


Loading onto the ferry to take us back to the city.

The Rock. This is as close as we got to Alcatraz as we passed by in the Bay. We opted to skip out on any tours, though we hear they are neat-o.

Our hotel, The Westin St. Francis as we walked across Union Square.

My love posing so nicely in the fancy lobby. They were so glad to have us as guests!

Our gigantic corner room...Eric indulging in a cupcake I picked up the day before at Kara's Cupcakes in Ghiradelli Square.

Our plans for dinner were to find a nice little gem in Chinatown. Well, after the ferry ride we were just enough queasy to find Chinatown, let's say LESS than appetizing. Okay, the poster-size photo of roasted duck (with his head still on, of course) pretty much sealed the deal...no eating in Chinatown! We ventured over to this tiny Greek restaurant and had a delish meal...good plan!
My first dish of calamari. Yum.
I simply love tiny restaurants!
