This post concludes my and Mark’s San Francisco staycation. There’s a bittersweetness to this post. Reviewing these photos brought back so many lovely memories of wandering through San Francisco’s slick streets beneath cloud filled skies, hand in hand with Mark, and praying that the rain wouldn’t come pouring down on us. We clambered up and down steps, marched up the thigh burning steep hills of San Francisco, and enjoyed every millisecond of our journey, AKA, urban hike.
It’s so rare to have moments or days when you don’t have any responsibilities, worries, or pressing matters that need to be taken care of. This trip whisked me away from all of those things and deposited me into a weekend of merely enjoying small moments, nature, and good company. It was precisely what I needed. I spent the weekend wondering how in the world life could get any better than this.
If you’re ever in need of a weekend getaway or want to visit San Francisco, CA, I’d suggest booking a hotel somewhere by the Fisherman’s Wharf or Pier so that you can explore everywhere by foot and not miss a single wonder.
For Coit Tower, we began on Battery Street and then headed up the Filbert Steps. Prepare for a leg workout!
Two points of views: Mark’s of me and mine of Mark.
We finished on Greenwich Street and headed towards Lombard! I’ve discovered that the greatest allure of San Francisco is that everything is walkable.
Lombard Street – Known for being one of the crookedest streets ever! Your car brakes will thank you if you walk the street instead of drive it.
All I can say is that Google Maps especially helped us find our way from Coit Tower to Lombard Street. Thank you, technology! I would have been desperately lost without you.
Hopefully you’ll be able to make it out to these two places one of these days. Afterwards you could drive on over to Billy Goat Hill and Twin Peaks for more hiking! (That’s what we did, and it stirred up our appetites for dinner at Greens Restaurant – an all vegetarian restaurant). If you missed my earlier SF staycation posts, here’s the one to Angel Island.
