As soon as I knew we would be visiting San Francisco, I instantly knew where we would stay...
I mean, where else would full-fill my chandelier goals?
Or hotel lobby flower goals for that matter? Non other than The palace hotel ...
Isn't she a beaut? Not only is the palace hotel beautiful, but its also in a great location to explore the city...which is exactly what we did as soon as we checked in our bags.
For me, seeing a city for the first time is like seeing a movie for the first time... the feeling of excitement is unbeatable
And it was such a beautiful day to explore the city and a walk along the river
And even take a boat to see the golden gate bridge and Alcatraz
Remember to wrap up warm... its windy out here . So much for my blow dry ...
It’s a great way to see San Fran from a different perspective...even if it means you do the
Tourist thing .
The golden gate bridge is really something to see
Once back on dry land we strolled to Pier 39
And stopped off for some famous clam chowder in a sour dough bowl. An absolute must!
Before taking a stroll through the lovely ferry plaza market place. You can get everything here from organic mushrooms to artisan cheese. And the most Delicious pasties from meiette patisserie
Its a great place to shop , eat and drink ...and awesome for watching the world go by
And than it was off to see my favourite girls. The one and only painted ladies
They were perhaps my favourite thing to see in San Fran... I know they are ultimately just a row a pastel houses. But, the are so beautiful. The architecture is so pretty, I spent the remainder of our trip fantasising about living in one
I couldn’t decide which was my favourite pastel lady
The little round turret on this house was giving me life...
Stay tuned for part 2 of our adventures in San Fran later this week ...
