Our San Francisco Trip

Our trip to San Francisco was absolutely amazing. Even the drive there, was beautiful because we drove along the coast line. I don't have any images of the Golden Gate Bridge because we took the Bay Bridge instead.  We stayed in Redwood City, which is located right between San Francisco and San Jose.  

El Pescado Beach - Beautiful crashing waves splash onto pretty sand.  If your looking for seashells, take a scenic walk on the beach, which will lead you to lots of rocks.  Once you reach the rocks, you will reach a ton of seashells! 

A "Crabby", as my little Jr. says. We came across it
 while strolling across the beach. And yes, we helped the little guy back to the water. :)

Sofitel Hotel - We stayed at the Sofitel Hotel located in Redwood City.  This is by far the best hotel I have ever stayed in. Well I guess, I should mention it is a luxury hotel!  The inside of the hotel was so fancy, as was the restaurant, food, and to be honest, everything about it down to the beauty items in the bathrooms!  The restaurant, bakery, bar, and lounge area were all very convenient.  I must mention the beds were like laying on a cloud. I seriously took an hour nap just because the bed was so comfy. 

 Pier Market Seafood Restaurant - If you visit San Fransisco then visiting the pier is a must!  We ate at Pier 39 and although I didn't take a picture, their Clam Chowder served in fresh Sour Dough bread bowls is out of this world delicious. By the way, after you eat by the water, you can take a stroll along the pier while you gaze at lots of sea lions splashing in the water. 

Lombard Street in San Francisco - Famous street in San Fran known for it's tight hairpin turns. We snapped this photo at night while driving back to the hotel. 

If you are thinking about planning a trip to San Fransisco you may want to visit for lots of resources for your next visit.

This sounds so fun. I am glad you had a great time. I think I ate there years ago on the pier. I ate somewhere like it. I haven't been to San Francisco in years but I loved it. Thanks for sharing. Rita Spratlen

That sounds awesome. The only time I was in SF was at the airport for a layover. I would love to explore the city!

I'd love to take a trip to San Fran! I'd also like to have a bed so comfy it wanted me to take a nap. :)

Sounds like so much fun! I hope to one day visit that part of the US, especially all the places in Cali.
