san francisco

how gorgeous is this?!?!?
early morning sun at half moon bay.

breathtaking

we made it to san francisco pretty early in the morning. parked our car for the day/night and headed to
pier 33 for an alcatraz tour. did i mention it was freezing!!

   



one question we both had and haven't got it answered. and maybe are too lazy to google it. but why is the golden gate bridge red and not golden?!?!?

by the time we got back on the mainland, we were starving and knew we had to have something in the area... clam chowder anyone?! or how about crab chowder?!?! i chose the later :)
delicious!


after lunch we did a lot of walking. not even sure where we walked to. but it was along the water. constant views of the bridge. alcatraz. san francisco is a beautiful, crazy city. 
i just have to say you cannot. and i mean no way, can you go to SF without getting yourself an amazing, heavenly, almost orgasmic cup of ghirardelli hot chocolate. especially in the cold weather. 
seriously though...how can hot chocolate taste so good. maybe because it was salted caramel hot chocolate. we did. oh yes we did. 
and it was totally worth the 51214861320 calories!!!



when you are in san fran, do as the san fran's do.
eat at the local places.
we ate at the delicious scoma's. 
had lots of wine. lots of crab. equals happy couple! :)

  now of course before we left the next morning we had to get the obligatory golden gate bridge photos. we went to fort point and walked around that whole area as well as the other fort nearby that i am totally drawing a blank on. well whatever it was called...it was simply gorgeous! so clean and calm and quiet. i would love to live there. oh and big bonus, they had their own StarB too :)



this trip was our first vacation since our honeymoon. much needed. and totally worth it.
we had an amazing, relaxing time just the two of us. i think we need to do something like this once a year.
i think all couples should. one or two nights away from the norm. in a hotel. out to dinner. out to coffee. walking around. yes! we all need this to keep our relationships fresh. healthy. and sexy. to be honest.

Such a fun trip for you guys! I really loved all of our trips to SF. Your pictures are just beautiful!

Yay! My favorite place, in. the. world!

it is called the golden gate bridge because when the sun sets behind it it LOOKS golden :-)

I am not going to lie, I am a little disappointed you didn't go to the Buena Vista for an Irish Coffee - it is right next to Ghirardelli Square - I guess you didn't want to see EVERYTHING in one trip, this way you HAVE to go back, right?! ;-P

alright, scratch my previous comment - i was CLEARLY lied to as a child...

I guess it refers to the straight that surrounds the bay... http://wiki.answers.com/Q/Why_is_the_Golden_Gate_Bridge_called_golden_when_it_is_actually_orange

who knew?! haha
