Waking up this morning to Pretty San Francisco.
20.09.2015 - 22.09.2015 27 °C
The key to this statement in our heading is waking up, which means we actually had some sleep - hooray! Gosh we had some serious sleep deprivation and jet lag yesterday, we were out on our feet with tiredness after being awake for almost 2 days! But after fighting with our bodies to sleep when they wanted to be awake and to eat when they thought we should be sleeping - we may have succeeded!
Today we are feeling a little more human so I thought I would catch you up on our 'girls trip' adventures.
Yesterday, we settled into our very pretty apartment opposite Ghiradelli Square - yes that means chocolates on call! We met the owners who advised us to change our plans of Sausalito and Muir woods as it was a 'never heard of' rare hot day (and I mean hot - Sydney middle of summer hot!) in San Francisco and EVERYONE would be on the water.
So we got in our warm weather gear and explored, we are around the corner from Fisherman Wharf, so wandered down to there and he wasn't wrong everyone in San Francisco was there!
We looked about, checked out the seals then cabbed it up to Nob Hill to explore the area around the opulent Fairmont Hotel, where Barak Obama stayed last month.
We wandered (or more like panted) along the hills - and made our way to China Town to see the Golden Gate Fortune Cookie Factory, where a little old lady was hand making hundreds and hundreds of fortune cookies - they smelt and tasted delicious. Although we were too tired to care!
I bought some Calvin Klein knock offs for the males in my house or rather Cainiao Kalin's at $2.50 a pair as opposed to $75 a pair!
By this time the exhaustion, heat and walking was enough so we cabbed it back to our apartment, headed across to the square to 'Lori's Diner' a cute little 1960's style diner with views looking over the bay, to eat dinner at 4pm and try and stretch ourselves until night time before we crashed and attempted a full night sleep.
It is 7am now, (midnight for you guys), We are planning to head to Sausalito today. Will post you later - sweet dreams!
