We started the first day in an American Diner called Lori's. Breakfast was awesome, we are definitely going to be eating well on this trip!
I love the cable cars. They are so cool in their steam punk retroness. I'd want to work the grip if it didn't look so complicated!
We visited the main tourist traps on our first day starting with Ghirardelli Square:
Fisherman's Wharf was touristy and felt a bit like a theme park but I really liked it, especially the sea lions.
We weren't able to visit Alcatraz because it is fully booked up until next week so we'll have to come back sometime to visit again. After fisherman's wharf we were a bit peckish so we headed to Washington Square for a coffee and a very yummy pastry. We wandered around some more then headed back to the hotel for a nap. After a drink in the bar we went to Chinatown for dinner. I think we're still adjusting to the time zone though because we were fast asleep by 10:30pm!
