Hello (again) San Francisco

Yesterday, we waved a fond farewell to Santa Cruz. But not before chowing down on a delicious breakfast at the hotel.

Two buses, a Bart train and a taxi later, we arrived here.

The final apartment on our trip. It’s based in a beautiful Victorian building in a lovely part of town.

We headed out in search of food.

On the way, we stopped off at a very special house. This is where the Doubtfire family lived. We always planned to pay it a visit while we were here, but since the death of Robin Williams, it became more meaningful.

Lots of other people had stopped by to pay their respects.

It was pretty awesome to see all the tributes and messages written on the pavement.

The whole area is beautiful with amazing views across the Bay.

We walked down (the very steep!) Fillmore Street and ended up here.

Luckily for us, it was happy hour! Which meant cheap beer.

Cheap fries (these were covered in gravy and beef brisket).

And three sliders for $9. Boom. The perfect chance to try a range of burgers.

And boy were they delicious.

Just look at that.

Feeling pretty full, we braced ourselves for the walk back UP Fillmore Street.

Alex had an espresso to help him on his way.

We weren’t back at the apartment long before I realised we were just a short walk from B. Pattiserie. And it closed at 6pm. Time to go!

Cookie time! These were amazing, especially the chocolate chip one.

Hot chocolate and iced tea – guess whose drink was whose…

We headed back to the apartment to chill for the evening (and watch the series finale of Honey Boo Boo. Don’t judge me).

And Alex had an early birthday drink (he was 28 in the UK, after all).
