San Francisco Pier 39

Two weeks ago, my little sister graduated from College, which meant a trip back hope to cheer her on and help celebrate the occasion.  Growing up in the Bay Area, San Francisco was what you meant when you referred to something as "the city". After high school, I live in San Francisco for a year and can not say more good things about this wonderful city.  Aside for the area know as the tenderloin, San Francisco really is a beautiful city.

I once had a friend, who had lived in New York before, refer to San Francisco as a snow globe. She said to here, NY was like a move set, with all the big buildings, rough neighborhoods, and beautiful brownstone lined streets you see on TV, but that San Francisco was like this little doll house world, living in a snow globe.  And it's so true... Now being able to say I have lived in both cities myself, I couldn't have described the two cities better.

For this particular trip, we spent most of the weekend in the Sacramento area, but since I flight that was supposed to get in Thursday night was majorly delayed, and we didn't end up getting in until Friday morning, we decided to grab lunch at Pier 39, before making the drive to Fairfield.

We ate lunch at the Fog Harbor Fish House (highly recommended).  We started with the clam chowder in a bread bowl... because a trip to San Francisco is not complete with out one.  Then for the main course, he enjoyed the Seafood Platter and I indulged in the Fish + Chips.  Worth EVERY calorie!

When then spent the remainder of our time, walking the Pier and playing tourist.  There is something so enjoyable about playing tourist in a city where you lived once and grew up not to far from.  Added bonus, that I was able to do so with my love.  My only regret, is that I wish we could have spent more time in San Francisco.  But, there's always next time...
