the pacific side of things

every once and again we transplanted west coasters get the chance to travel back to the pacific side of things. this weekend, luckily, is one of those times. don't get too excited washingtonians, this time we aren't heading back to the home state. we heard it was calling for rain all weekend. waah waaaaah. 

instead, we are heading the fantastic city of san francisco, home of ghirardelli chocolate, one pretty big bridge, lots of sailboats, oh and our friends david and joann. they are getting married. :) ad is a best man in this wedding so we won't have much time for sight seeing. but, if we catch some extra moments here and there, i already have a list of things i'd love to do:

-visit the ferry building, and their saturday farmer's market.

-stroll around golden gate park and visit the conservatory of flowers. aren't these rhodies gorgeous?

-take a ride on a trolly car. despite having gone to san fran twice before, i've never done this. shame on me. i'd love to explore the city from the only moving national historic landmark. 

-and last but not least, visit ghirardelli square. i would break my 2012 chocolate fast to eat a free piece of ghirardelli chocolate while waiting in line for a ghirardelli chocolate sunday. i would.

i think four is an optimistic list, so i'll stop there for now. but, have you ever been to san francisco? what are your favorite places to visit/eat? is there anything we should absolutely squeeze in? here's to one fast paced weekend in the city!

happy wednesday friends!

ps, do you have any fun travel plans coming up?
