Last week, I was lucky enough to spend 5 nights in one of my new favorite cities in the states …. San Francisco. After 8 hours of sitting at O’Hare airport …. wondering if my flight was actually going to make it out (I left the night of the awful storms) … I finally boarded the plane. My dear college friend, Cortney, was transfered to California over a year ago, so I was DYING to visit her and explore San Fran and Napa. It was an incredible visit full of amazing photo opts, gorgeous views and lots and lots of yummy wine in Napa. I am completely smitten with this city … and I will need to return again soon.
My long weekend started with a tour of all the different views of the Golden Gate Bridge, Pier 39 and Fisherman’s Warf. Most tourists only need to see the bridge from one location, but I loved all the different views …. more photo opts for me (and you!).
We toured Alcatraz on Friday afternoon. It was such an interesting experience learning about the prison, the attempted escapes and the way of life within these walls. A definite must if you are visiting San Fran.
Not quite Chicago, but I do love it …..
Cort – I can’t thank you enough for being such a FABULOUS hostess! I had the best weekend in San Fran. I adore everything about your new city. Thanks again for having me there and being such a perfect tour guide, camera assistant/second shooter, and more. xo
