Well, actually, that's not quite true. As much as we enjoyed ourselves, and were actually grateful for the trip without kids, we (I) missed them an awful lot. Everytime I saw kids that were the same ages as mine I got a little homesick. But, that's not even the point of this post. I'm home, had lots of fun and I thought I'd blog a bit about our vacation.
So we'll start with Day 1. (In reality, Day 2, but I'm sure you don't especially want to hear about our long drive on Day 1.)
We bought our cool San Francisco City Passes which gave us free public transportation and lots of tickets to various museums and other attractions. So we first took BART into the city after eating our lavish breakfast at our fancy hotel (we love Priceline) and started out at Pier 39 (doesn't everyone?).
Went to the aquarium, took a cruise around the Bay and under the Golden Gate Bridge, looked at the everpresent sea lions even though there were only like 6 of them there, ate chowder at a great little restaurant called the Blue Mermaid, walked up to Ghirardelli Square to eat ice cream, and rode the cable car (where my shoe fell off into the whole brake/rail mechanism thing and I embarrassed Joel to death by having to ask the operator to retrieve it for me) back to the BART station and arrived back at the hotel around 10 pm. Very fun day.
Pictures later. And updates on more days later.
