A perfect weekend and finish to our trip in San Francisco. We had breakfast yesterday at one day at my favorite bakeries- Tartine. This morning we had breakfast at the Craftsman & Wolves who serves a delicious muffin with a soft-boiled egg in the middle. How did they do that? The America’s Cup is going on in San Francisco Bay which added to the excitement. We even saw the police talking a person down from the edge of the Golden Gate Bridge. It is time to come home.
Yesterday we woke up to a lavish brunch at The Villagio. We traveled up to tour the Castello di Amorosa winery which was very impressive. It is a Tuscan castle built in the 90’s. Their wine was outstanding. Afterwards we popped by Gott’s for their famous burgers and garlic butter fries. Sinful!
We traveled straight to San Francisco that afternoon. While here we are staying at a friend’s pad that has perfect view of the city. It is also in walking distance to Tartine… the best French bakery in town.
Yesterday we walked and walked… Popped in The Clift Hotel to see the Redwood Bar and their video portraits of people. It is fun to see the pictures blink….very Harry Potterish. We made a reservation at the wildly popular R & G Restaurant in Chinatown. While waiting an hour, we rode the cable car up and down the street.
Today we head to Alcatraz and more!
Sunday we spent the night in Death Valley- Furnace Creek Ranch. Death Valley was hot, dry and spectacular! We did not go to the brothel pictured here…just took a picture!
Monday AM we moved on to Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks. Such a rapid change in ecosystem!
The next two nights we are in Yosemite.
