San Francisco

San Francisco was amazing!

Getting there was an adventure. We were afraid that Tess wasn't going to make it. Kelsey and I got in to Oakland around 6:45 and we sat around the airport and car rental place until 1:30 a.m. Tess was pulled from one plane and then had to detour through Denver where it was storming. Her plane got in a little before 1 a.m. and she made it over to rent the car right as it was closing. It was such a long day and were all exhausted. Traveling is draining! But Tess made it and we had such a great time.

We stayed with a family friend of Kelsey's and they took such great care of us. We rode the BART into San Francisco on Saturday and spent the entire day there.

The first thing we did was rent bikes. Our plan was to ride across the Golden Gate Bridge and we ended up riding all along the bay. It was great and the view was phenomenal. We are all a little sore from 3 1/2 hours of biking, but it was worth it.

We loved the Bay!

The bridge was so crazy! They currently have one side closed off so pedestrians and bikers had to share one side. Tess almost died twice and Kelsey hit a man. It was definitely an adventure!

We ate lunch down at Fisherman's Wharf and it was delicious!

After lunch we walked up to Ghirardelli Square and bought ice cream. Then we walked to Chinatown and Union Square. We may have underestimated the distance... and walked for a really long time. We got to see so much of the city though and it really was such a great experience. I loved San Francisco and spending the weekend with my roommates.


  1. Shana! I'm jealous you got to go to San Fran... especially the Ghiradelli Square part. Hope all is well :)

  2. Miss Shana- I am so glad that you are taking advantage of travelling, it is so much fun! We miss you in Utah! -The Nichols Family
