After a smooth landing at SFO, we (my co-worker Lauren & I) got settled into our residence for the week and headed out for lunch at Pt. Reyes Station. Cowgirl Creamery has a different grilled cheese special every week, and the Turkey & Fromage Blanc sandwich sounded too good to pass up.

It was as amazing as it looks, and we savored every. last. bite. I've already got the urge to go back, but there are so many other food spots around town calling our name. Pardon me while I continue to re-live the experience through this picture. Feel free to join me.

With out stomachs full and hearts open to the city, we headed out for our first tour - a hop on/off, double-decker sightseeing adventure. Here's what the buses look like:


They're big.

They're red.

They're FABULOUS.

Frankly, there is no point in exploring a big city if you're not going to do it big. (Trust me, I've done it "small" and it can make an amazing city dreadfully underwhelming)

The view from the top lets you see all the highlights in the best way.







We stopped at Golden Gate Park for some photo ops.


 We also stopped by the wax museum to hang with a few of our favorite celebs.

Personally, I always imagined Jesus to be better looking than that...


Angelina Jolie

Sylvester Stallone & Steve Irwin (A.K.A. the Crocodile Hunter, RIP)

The Wizard of Oz Gang

 
President Barack Obama & Former President Bill Clinton



Next, we headed back to Fisherman's wharf for a leisurely stroll before our bay cruise. Even though the wind is brutal, the sights are breath-taking. An ominous blanket of fog rolls in every weekend, covering the bay and giving the whole area an irresistibly eerie feeling.






A full day of touring worked up our appetite, and we decided to check out this tiny little restaurant.



Please stay tuned, this place was so good that I must blog about it by itself.

Stuffed, inspired and worn out from the day, we retreated back to our haven for the evening.

Did I mention the view is amazing?


 
The glowing spot in the distance is AT&T Park (where the SF Giants play)


I'm starting to understand why Tony Bennett left his heart in San Francisco.

    1. You definitely should. Bring a jacket, because it gets pretty chilly. Thanks for stopping by! ♥
