San Francisco

As we approached San Francisco we pulled over for a view of the Golden Gate, but this is all we saw:

Friday night we headed out to get seafood and enjoy some of the nightlife. I took Instagrams as bread crumbs to find our way home:

Saturday we were up early to see Alamo Park and the Painted Ladies (Full House anyone?):

Then to the wharf and our view of Alcatraz:

All over SF there were great murals on the sides of buildings, I especially loved this Peacock:

After spotting a naked bike ride, eating dim sum, and strolling Union Square we headed with the Car to Lombard Street and zig zagged our way down:

Gave one more attempt at the Golden Gate, this time we saw the bottom:

We headed the burbs for dinner at a nice steak house and drinks at an Irish pub with live music. Sunday most of the crew left, but I had the run of the city. I was a little tired but I made sure to stop by one of my favorite stores we don't have in DC (UNIQLO) and then caught a local play (Arcadia) before I made sure to take a ride on a street car:

And head back to the airport and back to DC after a great weekend with childhood friends:
