Summer Vacation - Part 5

The evening we arrived in San Francisco it was so foggy we didn't even realize till we were half way through that we were on the golden gate bridge.  I knew that San Francisco was known for its foggy days but I never knew it was as heavy as it actually was! 

The next day we ventured out into the windy foggy weather for our first day of exploration in the city of San Francisco.  

Our first venture was Lombard Street.  It is known to many as the most crookedest road.  It has a one block section where it is very steep and yields very sharp turns.  Cars (including ours of course) were taking turns driving down this road.  Many tourists (like me..hehehe) got out of their cars to get pictures.


Can you believe people actually live in those houses? 

Our next stop? - Ghirardelli Square

This was once home of the Ghirardelli Chocolate Factory during the Gold Rush but has moved since.  What remains is a Ghirardelli Chocolate shop where you are greeted by a sample of oh so yummy chocolate and you can buy oh so many kinds of Ghirardelli Chocolate.  Also in the square are many cute little shops and boutiques.  A tourist's delight!


Next Stop... The Cannery
This was Del Monte's old cannery which is now home to shops and restaurants. 

Hubby found an In-N-Out Burger right across the street..which is where we stopped for lunch.  We were super excited for lunch here because we don't have an In-N-Out anywhere near this was a special treat..hehe. 

That takes us to halfway though our first day..stay tuned tomorrow for the second half of our day :)
