After vowing to make the most of my little bit of time in the Bay Area, I was up early and ready to go. But my hunger set in and became really cranky. So the pressure was placed on me to find a great breakfast spot b/c of my knack for finding the best meals. After about 30 minutes of walking around Oakland, I was totally unsuccessful and crankiness continued. Finally we made it down to San Francisco to a place where my aunt had been before called Joanie’s Happy Days Diner which had amazing food and customer service. Definitely recommend this place. Sorry pics. But there is a link above.
Next we headed to Golden Bridge. So clique and touristy I know but I wasn’t gonna skip on an opportunity to see it first hand and walk across it. Just the journey in itself to get was an accomplishment considering it was the furthest she walked in her few attempts to get there and it being my first there. Then on top of 3.5 mile walk round trip to cross the bridge which was a nice hike for two people who had just done a weeks works of hiking. So as inched closer from Fishermans Wharf through the neighborhoods and along the Bay the excitement grew. (And yes, we could’ve used Uber or rode bikes but I think we went things the right way and it was more enjoyable.) Just seeing the fog rise and the bridge more exposed added so much more to the experience.
So we made it over and back without any issues. And myself being a cyclist I without a doubt want to bike across it one day and up the hill to get a better view of San Francisco. All in all, a great day of walking and seeing the Golden Gate Bridge. Had myself a rice bowl and cookies and cream ice cream from Whole Foods then crashed for the evening.
SN: I had a record breaking day of walking today according to my Apple Watch.
