Well, Lauren and I (Tara AGAIN...SHOCKING RIGHT?!?!?) did not taste any of the famous San Francisco Treat, Rice-a-Roni, on our trip, but we did sample some delicious meals. We will get to that later.
Let me start by saying that I am glad quite a few of you have commented on my glorious writing style and how fabulously entertaining I am, because you are going to get a lot more of me. This is because Justin does not seem to have the time to write blogs for the project he has volunteered himself for. Therefore, for the benefit of him being able to keep his glorious new camera, GPS finder, webcam, etc., i have taken it upon myself to be a sweetheart and do his job for him. Now if that isn't dedication, I don't know what is.
Anyway, I digress. Lauren and I ventured to San Francisco for the weekend while Justin was off gallivanting around Eastern Europe and eating such delicacies as bone marrow and venison. (More on that later in the week). The first stop we made was in Fisherman's Wharf, where we checked out the Harbor Seals...
Such hosses, and so smelly, but so cute. Whilst on Fisherman's wharf, we tried some San Francisco seafood, some San Francisco donuts, and some San Francisco cookies. SICK!!! Needless to say, this weekend was NOT one to diet. Here we are in Fisherman's Wharf...
Kind of cute if I don't say so myself. It was a gorgeous day, but quite windy and cold!
Moving on...to get home from Fisherman's Wharf, we decided to take a rather untraditional method. Already that day we had ridden in a car, plane, BART/Subway, and a Cab. Mind you, we had only left my San Diego house 5 hours earlier. That's a lot of transportation for one day! So, to head back, we decided to take the famous Trolley.
Is this Mary Tyler-Moore-esque or something to anyone? I totally feel like we should be on the intro to friends in this photo. Anyway, we boarded the trolley and immediately Lauren made a new friend, who also enjoyed taking photos of himself--the conductor.
To this day, I don't know his name, but he took a liking to Lauren and proceeded to call her his girlfriend throughout the entire trip. He repeatedly yelled out "How you doin up there honey!" every time we stopped. The people on the ride were very amused. Here they are together...handsome couple, I do say:
HOT! The ride was enjoyable until we reached Union Square, where we proceeded to shop for at least 6 hours straight. By the time we were done, we were both dead exhausted, but still had dinner reservations and needed a DRINK badly. So, we got dressed up and headed out to Betelnut for Mojitos, First Crush for giant amounts of Tapas, and a bar I can't remember the name of in our hotel for dinks.
Ok so these are the last photos we took of the trip. We did a lot after this but it mostly consisted of shopping sooo....not interesting. I leave you with a glorious sight that was seen whilst on the trolley...
Yes, the University Club, where the flags of all members' colleges are posted. Don't be jealous that I went to an Elite and glorious university. It's not my fault I'm a genius.
