On Saturday, we woke up and headed downstairs for a nice breakfast to fuel up for a fun, busy day. Then, we walked several blocks down a HUGE hill to walk through Chinatown. (As we walked down, down, down, HG said, “Thank goodness for gravity!”) We found 56 Ross Alley and checked out the Fortune Cookie Factory, which was quite the experience! Then, we hailed a cab and headed to Coit Tower for a great lookout over town. We waited what seemed like forever for our turn at the top, but it was really about 30 mins. Then, we busted a move to get to lunch at Waterbar. It is a beautiful restaurant, inside and out, with its location right at the base of the Bay Bridge. HG’s food came immediately and then she entertained herself with the lobster tank.
After roaming around the riverfront for a bit, we hopped a cab and went across town to Golden Gate Park. After getting bad directional advice from the cabbie and hiking what felt like miles, we finally found the playground we had come to see. HG had a big time swinging, climbing, and exploring. After a few hours, we dragged ourselves back to the hotel with the help of a great and educational Uber driver. When we made it back, HG wanted us to get in our pajamas and get in bed. I told her that if I got in my pjs, I wasn’t going to be able to get out of them. Her response was, “Let’s get room service!” So that’s what we did, and we had a fun, comfy, and delicious dinner with a beautiful sunset bay view. A great end to a great getaway!
