Sharon and I got back to Edmonton last night after spending ten days in San Francisco. I had never been there before but had always heard great things. As a bit of a “food town” we thought it would be a great place for us to go to get away from things for a while. Here are some of the highlights.
Pretty much the first thing we did after arriving was visit the Heart of the City Farmers’ Market. It reminded us of our own City Market.
Another popular tourist spot is the crookedest street in America. No not Wall Street, Lombard Street.
This photo was taken from Coit Tower (you can see the reflection). If you can believe it, we ran into a couple we knew from Edmonton at the top of the tower! Small world.
We loved all of the fresh produce that was available (and Sharon was particularly sad that we didn’t have a kitchen available). Visiting the Ferry Building Farmers’ Market was pretty cool.
The tasting fees quickly added up, but our decision to take a tour of wine country turned out to be a good one.
We decided to walk across the Golden Gate Bridge. It started off foggy but quickly cleared. Other than being very windy, it was a great walk!
All the festivals we visited seemed to be extremely well attended, and the Ghirardelli Square Chocolate Festival was no exception. The lines were insane!
Potentially my favorite dish – a pizza from Chez Panisse. I’m a sucker for eggs.
On our last morning, we visited Muir Woods. It was so quiet!

That’s really just a taste of our trip. You can see the rest of our photos (846 in all) here.
I really enjoyed San Francisco and would definitely visit again!
